u know...originally i never really liked teddy atlas...but lately, the guy seems to be speaking a lot of truth. his commentary can get old and very predictable, but i think he's good for boxing. their commentary is underrated. they have been showcasing some amazing talent and i can't see why that won't continue. they are good for boxing. now if the network would step up it's game and stop letting those bozos on their other shows talk about boxing like they have a clue when they clearly don't...i would be much happier. oh yeah, also...don't postpone fights for some meaningless game...college, tennis...or whatever.
Exactly! Atlas usually touches on punches that most would dare speak on. I always read his FH interviews on the front page...though I feel bad for the FH staff member who happens to do that interview. Shit, they will ask Atlas one question, and the mofo goes with a 5-paragraph response...though its hard to not read it

Yeah he's got some pretty wacky analogies and metaphors, but that can't hide the fact that he truly knows the sport.
At least Atlas's analogies are a bit funny...well, compared to Merchant's outlandish analogies that leaves the average viewer in a state of confusion, while Lampley simply smiles it off
