what did u guys think? i really enjoyed wards commentary...he needs to settle in a little bit more but he's going to be good.

kellerman is getting worse. not sure who's call it was to not interview the losers in those matches...but wtf!? give them their time on the mic!!!

also...i didn't like how kellerman was doing that merchant-esque shit...asking loaded questions and giving golovkin excuses for a performance that didn't need any excuses.

i'm starting to think he's being fed those questions by someone who doesn't have a clue. maybe i've been overly critical of merchant all this time when the blame should fall on the dipshit speaking to him in his ear piece!? nah.

did anyone else find that cut away to the locker room, where ggg was talking to his mom on the cell phone, kind of odd?

also...as a whole...i thought they all played follow the leader in the first match. i didn't agree with all the rounds...but none of them seemed to be trying to balance the view of it. consequently, they all went off the cliff together. there needs to be a guy on the telecast who can offer a different perspective. that's why i love roy and big george.

as for the cutaway to GGG in the locker room...i guess they realized they looked stupid making excuses for a guy who just basically dominated the fight and that was their way of back tracking.

which leads me to this....

am i alone with this? i start off liking certain fighters....then with hbo's bullshit and spin trying to force 'their guy' down our throats...i end up not liking that fighter and usually find myself rooting against him.

hbo's talking heads really need to give it a rest and just let great fights happen and stop trying to force their agenda. boxing is at it's best when we don't know who's going to win. also...i know what it is i'm seeing...i don't need their bullshit view points trying to skew opinions. max...i get that u've been doing this since ur teenage days and u have amassed a good amount of boxing knowledge but u just come off as a pompous ass. hbo just got rid of one...we don't need another. thank u.

yeah i agree. I liked ward but he did leave something to be desired, just a bit more inside knowledge on what was going on inside the ring that the casual fan would miss. Roy and Paul brought/bring this. things like foot positioning defensive posture for counter shots etc.
