I could see Kellerman taking over but I'm not a huge fan of him. He knows his stuff, but in my opinion he sometimes let's his biases take over his overall perspective. He's still a good commentator but I think he needs a little work on objectivity.
I really like the perspective Roy Jones Jr. brings and I think Bernard Hopkins would be good to hear from too.
Yeah I can see that also, he's more solid as a commentator nowadays. He does have the tendency to get over emotional like Lampley, but his is funny unlike Lampley's at times. Max Kellerman:"Oh my ggg... those were some thhhudding shots! Oh my God"!
Lol! Too funny!

Lampley has to be the best color guy in the game, his voice is synonymous with HBO boxing. I'm not 100% sold on RJJ but he's not bad. I really though Leonard would have been better. I like Hopkins but sometimes it takes him a little too long to spit shit out. If Oscar wasn't such a tool i think he could actually be good. I like Andre Ward, I think he has a future. Tarver is pretty good as well. I wouldn't mind seeing Hagler get back into the commentating role. Just for fun I'd like to see Lou Dibella on there haha
Yes Lampley has solidified his name and presence in the sport long ago. You can use sound bytes of his voices and put them in promotional videos for fighters, and it fits perfectly! RJJ is good in my book, and so is Hopkins, but like you said, it takes him forever get his shit out sometimes, but its knowledgeable. SRL didn't do much for me as a commentator, I guess his voice didn't fit for some reason (my opinion). I like Tarver as well...just gotta watch out for his "showers of excitement" when he talks. I can just hear him through the tv, and I know for a fact that dude spits unusually often when he talks.
Oscar's girly voice would just blow me, but I would also be interested in what he has to say. As for Dibella, i would pay to see that! Dude talks more shit 10 Chinese radio stations with everybody talking at the same time! I think Pascal and Hamed would have me rollin'! Thats just my personal choice though.
