Max seems like he's trying to emulate Merchant for some reason with the whole painting pictures and long, drawn out analogies. He blew it trying to go in depth with GGG. His English isn't very good. You could tell that from jump. Why continue to pry? After the first question, he should have kept it simple. GGG sounded like Borat chopped and screwed last night. It was painful. I like ESPN FNF Max. This new, HBO agenda coerced Max is becoming a little annoying. It's a shame because the guy knows his stuff and could be a torch bearer for the younger generation for his boxing knowledge. He's really letting Jim "three big booms" Lampley cramp his style.

Max has his moments but they are very few and far between.

I thought merchant was drunk 90% of the time he was on air (which he probably was). Yea he asked some tough questions but he constantly demeaned the fighters disrespected them and cut them off, i mean why bother asking questions if your gonna cut the guy off when he's giving you an answer..

Classic quote on Lamply!

It's in the Pacquiao-Bradley II thread, but I HAD to reproduce it here!


I just watched HBO's coverage of the fight. (I had a stream on fight night). My goodness. Jim Lampley is worse than Merchant now. I had Merchant on the stream unfortunately. He wasn't nearly as bad as Merchant. Jim Lampley is suck a dick rider. In fact, in between the 5th and 6th, Joel Diaz said "you're making him miss. I know Jim Lampley is over there probably saying he landed every fucking punch." And that's exactly what happened lol. Furthermore, every time Roy Jones and Max Kellerman said something good about Bradley, Lampley felt it imperative to counter it with a compliment to Pacquiao and downplay whatever they said. Manny definitely won the fight, but he was wildly inaccurate and I had Bradley winning 5 rounds. By no means was it a dominant performance as many suggested.
