We all know how bad of a job Jim Lampley and his crew would gulf the b@ll$ of their house fighters but it appeared to me last night that Showtime's crew was had b@ll$ in their jaws from Alvarez. Trout landed punch after punch and though it had little pop on them he still landed but nothing was mentioned when he landed.

Was the Showtime Crew teabagging Canelo and being totally unfair to Trout??

Is there something we (the boxing public) can do to shine some light on this unfairness (if it indeed exists or just a figment of my imagination)?

I didn't find it biased at all. Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention. I actually thought they did a good job. Paulie ripped the judges for their lopsided score cards. They had the fight near even for most of the bout. I mean let's be frank here...Canelo is the star and he was winning the fight. That being said, I didn't think they did Trout any sort of injustice. It was a close fight that Canelo won but Trout certainly made a good account for himself. I thought the commentary depicted that. As far as the replays and stuff...yea. I did see a bias. Pst fight, they didn't show hardly any of Trouts moments.

Overall though, I was satisfied. I thought Paulie especially did an excellent job. When Trout was stealing rounds with activity, despite Canelo having the flashier lands, he called it Trout rounds. If it were HBO, they probably would have sided with Christodolou's card.
