How about language interpreters who don't know the language they are speaking or translating! LOL!

How about certain foreign boxers who suddenly forget English when asked about drug testing?

I'm ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED by all this Jim Lampley/Larry Merchant hate. I love those guys and will cry when they're gone from commentating. Jim Lampley is the greatest play by play man in sports, and Larry Merchant is just great to listen to, agree or disagree. Max Kellerman, if you really listen to what he says, is a sycophantic, bumbling, hyperbolic, loud-mouth. He's still better than those Showtime morons though.

Lampley's cool with me, I just hate when he does those upcoming HBO programs after a great round just happened. Merchant just gets under my skin sometimes, but other than that, I can deal with him.

Let me just add one more for the hometeam...

I hate Tim Bradley's picture when they show pictures of the top fighters in the division, smh. (Dude's got a head like Tweety Bird)

That's really not Lampley's call. It's up to the producers, directors, and such. They relay when to do those spots, as well as what replays are coming, from the production truck to the guys at ringside.

Had to dig this one up! I watched Mayweather/Ortiz again last night and couldn't help but to cringe at Jim Lampley's prounounciation of 50 Cent's name..."Fiddy Cent".

lol...he was tryin at least. defintely a better effort than people who pronounce tupac as "two pack"

this has already been said, but my big pet peeve is when boxers talk in the third-person.

Tell me about it! I've said this already, but Emmanuel Steward can be an on-going pet peeve, though he knows boxing inside-out. If he's not busy making up words, or revealing his "true" predictions when the tides turn in the fight, then he gets annoyingly overzealous. He killed me in Gatt/Ward 1...you would never know he talked that loud unless you saw him in J. Taylor's corner chewing his ass out for not letting his hands go.
