Yep...got choked up like Manny had gone to the afterlife after the KO.

Yup he did...what the hell was that all about? I joked that maybe he put the house up on Manny to win by KO in the 6th round, but damn u would've thought he was from the Philipines.

Did u hear the DEFINING SILENCE from Larry Merchant both times Manny hit the deck? Lol. This is why I like the HBO commentators (besides Bob Papa) better than Showtime. Even when they tend to side with a fighter that loses in the way that Manny did, it makes it that much more funnier to watch IMO. They should've had a "reaction-cam" in slow motion right on the commentators faces the 2 times Manny went down. What sight that would be lol.

Yup, hesitation and all. So much so that they immediately wanted to talk about Marquez's "New Muscle".

I tried to give Lampley the benefit of the doubt and thought that he was thinking of Emanuel Steward missing the epic ending of the fight. Im sure there will be a camera angle of the announcer's table during the replay this Saturday night. Anybody notice Lampley and RJJ stand up when Manny got KO'd? It was CRAZY, coupled with Roy's long reaction of "OHHHHHHHHH!!!" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

LMAO! Leave it to MG!

I wont lie though, it was hard to watch Manny get floored like that. I think everybody in the arena was shook up by it. I was, until I thought about how much he was getting paid for the fight, then my pity subsided.

hearing them get it wrong constantly is what my enjoyment has been reduced to. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) adding a reaction cam would make their bullshit slightly bearable.

"He's not getting up Jim! He's not getting up, Jim! He's not getting, Jim!"

Roy's reaction. Favorite part. I'm pretty spent with these guys, minus Roy. I enjoy Roy on the broadcast for clarity and real boxing knowledge. I detest Lampley and Merchant. Utter worthlessness. And Max has become increasingly annoying.

Lampley crying was just pathetic. Smh. Merchant's Alzheimer's and general cantankerousness was at an all time high on Saturday.

Most of the time, we mute them. Or mock them. Either works.

I found it. It was absolutely disgusting. 1st of all, Marquez the smartest counterpuncher in boxing? Did Floyd Mayweather die? lol Secondly, when you can't hide your bias to the point where you are crying like a little kid because your boo boo loss, you need to be fired. PERIOD! He should be ashamed of himself. Thirdly, even in his description of what Marquez did to Pacquiao, it was more of a eulogy for Manny than praising Marquez. Manny was not dominating that fight until that point. He'd already gotten dropped. I actually thought Marquez was winning the 6th. He was countering Manny with some sneaky right hands ALL NIGHT LONG. I was waiting for The Mary Jane Girls to come out singing everytime he got hit. Knock it off Lampley. Nothing impossible happened other than the fact that you came to the realization that the praise you were giving Manny was much too overexaggerrated.

Maybe a bunch of us should contact HBO over Jim's biases in favor of the contracted fighters. He is REALLY turning me off with this type of commentary!

Jack

PS. And yes, I had the fight even at 47-47 at the stoppage. Jim, you probably only gave Marquez the round in which he scored a knockdown. Your biased commentary is just as bad as bias in judging and even "corrupt judging." There is corrupt commentary too as well as Punch Stats, where many times they did not tell the story of the fight that the judges saw.
