setanta have sent their own commentators over to florida for the woods-tarver fight. Thank god, those american ones they usually have are awful. AC Slater of saved by the bell was one of them. I have to put up with woodhalls brummy accent but i think i can handle it.

John Rawlings and Ritchie Woodhall called it, there the worst pairing since Duck Makenzie and John Rawlings.

Poor comentators, Darke and Watt should head to setanta!

British commentators are awful compared to American commentators. I had to watch Collazo/Mosley Sky Coverage as opposed to HBO, man, it gave me headaches. Just my opinion, eveyones' ears are different :)

yeah it has to be said HBO coverage is the nuts. Even when Kellerman is involved.

ITV is tolerable, but some of the fights have seen on setanta sound like there being covered by tramps off the street after a free beer for their troubles. showtime is pretty naff as well.

Setanta commentators are **** , Woodhall is a desperate judge Woods won 3 or 4 rounds not 2 by his un offical card

Woodhall would be better sitting in the studio. He sometimes has interesting things to say, but not enough to stretch over the 24 rounds we got last night. Maybe if he'd been covering the welterweight it would've been ok...

Did anyone see, at the start of the show on Setanta last night, the presenter seemed to get confused about what to say? As if he'd forgotten what was going on or something.

Jim Lampley and Jim Watt would be great together calling the fights, there easily the best two guys in the business at doing that, although Darke is very good too.

ITV is terrible man, they are Khan nuthuggers. Yah, I like Khan, but he's not nearly as good as they try to make him out to be.

They may be average, but it is a damn site better then listening to them annoying Top Rank commentators, who sound like to over enthusiastic Yanks debating a fight over a beer in the pub.

showtime and sky sports commentators do a good job

hbo and showtime fighters are too anecdotal... the sky fighters call the action instead of telling the life story of the fighters.

Don't know what Setanta's problem is regarding presenters and commentators - they're all ****e! Setanta's production of programmes is rank rotten too. BUT, they ARE airing some good fights. Can't have everything I spose.

yeah the production is gash! but as you say atleast they showing pretty much ALL the big fights. we didnt have it this good when sky pick and chose the fights to show. they usually only showed ones with significance to a britsh fighter as in possible opponents etc

Best are Adam Smith and Glen McCory.

I hate John Rawling he goes off at 100mph then starts telling storys about how a fighter grew up miss 10 clean shot and call a mised jab as a great right hand.

Your not on radio anymore John there are pictures we dont need a blow by blow just call it!
