He does have that old man IDGAF syndrome at times but I highly respect Teddy's boxing knowledge. In fact, I've said multiple times that boxing would be better off if he had a more publicized platform to speak on.

To me, Teddy A is not overrated. No one's perfect, but he clearly understands the sport. I agree about the old man IDGAF syndrome, which he's earned the right to display.
Also whenever he flips out it's because he's looking out for the sport. Unlike other's whose motives are self-serving.

I hear him all the time in FightNight Champion, and he knows his shit, but has his own opinion too. Dont we all.

I'd like to see him on a major network, I would've rather had him on HBO rather than Lampely or Larry Merchant...Shotime is great so no complaints (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I love Atlas, he's one of the few who will actually speak his mind and defend his actions. He's not a backtracker or an ass kisser like some who are considered his peers.

At least you can interpret what's going on in there, when he calls fights.

"Let some air outta those tires" = Go to the body to slow a guy down

An average fan/casual fan doesn't know what to look for other than a knockout. Hell, I've sat beside people while watching fights, and they thought it was over, just because a guy hit the deck. Smh
