What do you guys think about this? I think it's about damn time. As much as I respect Larry for being such a legendary figure in boxing and his not taking crap from anyone or bending over to anyone attitude, I feel that his commentating has taken an enormous plunge as of late. Larry is just way too hard to impress and will just spout out negative comment after negative comment during a fight.

We'll miss ya, Larry, but I feel that it's time for you to step down.

Well done Larry, you've been good over the years. Although I hope it doesn't take the new guy 2 years to put together a sentence or make a point lol.

He started off well.... Over the years he's become jaded.... But he's been in the game longer then I've been alive..... Hope he enjoys the remainder of his time on earth doing whatever he loves

Merchant's a decent enough guy, but it's definitely time. Hope he will be around for post-fight analysis and commentary.

Christmas has come early for the flomos? Larry's honest, direct questions were just too much for one boxer and his group of nuthuggers to bear.

Larry was/is fine, a touch slow asking questions maybe but it builds the suspense. Good luck to him if it is the end.
