I try to take the good with the bad (or the bad with the good, however it goes), but in boxing there's a lot of bad when it comes to pundits.
Is it something that boxing fans should just accept as part of life, or start calling it for what it is?

i couldn't bring myself to watch it all. Why are these clowns allowed to represent boxing. Are they actually that stupid or are they just paid to run around the cage like monkeys throwing shit at each other.

Both, stupidity and paid to make a mockery of the sport. As said already, Bayliss is by far the worst of the two.

I watched a few minutes of it when it was on TV and I'll never get those minutes of my life back.

What is disheartening is that Skip Bayless probably represents the common sports' fan perception of boxing...

Its incredibly disheartening. I think ppl dont realize how detrimental it is to the sport. It all goes back to the irresponsible journalism Ive been preaching for the last two years. ESPN has boxing analysts yet how many times have you seen Dan Rafael, Teddy Atlas or BJ Flores on First Take? So essentially, your allowing Skip Bayless, who probably only watches Pacquiao fights, formulate the opinion of millions of casual fans. Its a huge black eye on the sport. Its the reason Mayweathers image has been tarnished. Its the birthplace of Pactard nation. Its the reason Marquez wont ever get the credit he deserves for the win. Its the reason people wont appreciate how great Cotto is. Its the reason why guys like Andre Ward dont get the recognition he deserves. All because of ESPN, its irresponsible journalism and its laziness to allow a guy like Skip Clueless to repeatedly and demonstratively speak on shit he has no clue about.

If you didnt see that Marquez vs Pacquiao fight, youd think Manny was dominating him and Manny just got caught with a lucky shot. When in fact, he was eating counters all night and got knocked down FOR THE SECOND TIME and simply could not get up. Not to mention, Skip joined Lampleys butthurt clan and is pushing this foul play conspiracy. Yet neither has mentioned the fact that Roach has had numerous fighters pop for PEDs and his only reasoning against stricter testing is because Manny wasnt willing to do it himself.
