In my opinion HBO would be wise to replace Larry Merchant. He doesn't bring any entertainment to the table unless of course Floyd is the fighter he is talking to. It would be nice to see Teddy Atlas get that job. Just my opinion though and I'm sure some will disagree.
It would be a TERRIBLE look for HBO to fire Larry Merchant because Floyd can't handle being asked anything other than soft-ball, lollipop shit.
Mike Tyson didn't like him, and they refused to get rid of Merchant for Mike. It would be bad if they did it just to appease Floyd.
Larry Merchant pisses me off sometimes, but he's good for the sport.
Should ESPN fire Brien Kenny for getting into it w Floyd?
People are concerned about GBP buying Ring Mag as a potential compromise of integrity? They should be just as concerned if HBO fires Larry Merchant to appease FMJ.
Shit, Larry was mid-sentence into giving Mayweather his props when Floyd went off about a fair shake, etc. It was so left field (I guess, hence the look on Merchant's face that everyone is cropping.
