HBO commentary for boxing would be great if Larry "The biggest hater" Merchant wasn't apart of that team. He is so negative and half of the time he does not know what he is talking about. Unless the fight is a bloody massacre he isn't happy. I am not going to even touch his pure biased against Floyd. I wondered if HBO should replace him with someone else... I loved it when Foreman told him to shut up!! He should stop commentating In my opinion. Any thoughts?

no one likes a nagging woman....and a grumpy old man is a close second. larry is a grumpy old man who rarely has anything good to say about anyone/anything. i can do with out his negative opinion/commentary. it's time for him to retire. he should take jim lampley with him because either that guy needs a new pair of glasses or he needs to find a better way of hiding his man-crushes. i've never seen a guy be more wrong then him ever calling blow by blows. it seems he picks his favorite before the fight happens and just calls it the way he sees fit. i think hbo should give the fans the option of eliminating commentary and just listen to the live action from ringside mics.
