jim watt sends me insane. his grating voice, his shameless partisanism, his constant moaning, his overuse of the term "fancy dan".

Yes.

BoxNation shows quite a few fights in other countries now, and he is usually annoyingly negative about the non-Brits on these cards.

The other UK commentators are generally fair. Watt is partisan, but gives credit where it's due.

lampley and lederman annoy me more than kellerman, which is saying a lot.

Although i usually like their boxing experts (apart from Lennox who was awful)

Adam Smith.

Seriously that guy gets right on my tits.

Comments, when both fighters are giving it everything, like "they have trained so very, very hard for this!"

No ****ing **** Sherlock, they are boxers of course they would have, or should have, trained hard for that sort of fight.

They're all awful. Horrible.

The only commentators I actually like listening to are Lampley - although I think I'm more or less on my own with that one, Bernstein, Jones Jr (I really wish he'd stop doing that fake laugh every time Lampley says something though) and Malignaggi. Paulie's accent is a bit annoying but he actually knows boxing and points out what fighters are doing right and wrong, which I like to hear.
