I hate Tessitore, Stephen A, Kriegel and Bernardo Osuna. Get rid of all of them.

ESPN has Atlas who should be the lead boxing guy but he loves the sport too much to be a shill for TR so they will not put him in that spot. Hell Rafael would be better then Stephen A. BUnce would be as well.

In a perfect world they'd give us Atlas, Max and a non TR employee but that will never happen.

Yeah they fired Atlas who had decades of boxing knowledge because he went against the company line and called out a BS ruling. We get Steven A because hes become a mini celebrity and yes to bring in the black audience. Thats why they bring in celebrities like Shack and Kevin Kart to rip on him and build his celebrity. But its painful to watch generic "sports" commentators talk boxing when they dont know **** about it or about the analysis of boxing.

Even this rant in the video is to build up Steven A's celebrity. I never seen legit boxing commentators start talking about some fighter's tweets to them.
