Never really noticed Tim, for better or worse. All these commentators these days are company men for the most part, unfortunately. I did remember Tim having a similar opinion to mine in the Pac-Horn fight though so from that experience I don't think he is as biased as others I have seen. Never really heard/seen him be a sycophant but again I never really have paid attention to him.

Yep stellar amateur career, hard to take that away from him.

Despite the controversy in the 2nd fight, I think you have to say Kov could have handled that situation better...but yeah unfortunately for me that 2nd fight was another in Andre's career where I didn't really see him separate from his opponent boxing-wise, while also having the fight end controversially/scored heavily in his favor. My 2 cents anyway.

Yeah agreed - something just a bit off imo.

Andre Ward is very solid behind the mic. Not sure what all the complaints are all about. Breaks down stuff well and sees things others don't ahead of time. Is also able to put together his sentences much better than his partner Bradley. Only guy that ticks me off on that broadcast crew is Tessitore. He is a master of the hyperbole and every time Fury/Crawford/Lomachenko fight, he's never seen performances like that before LOL.

I met him once at Fentonís
[Link View Has Been Removed. Click Here To Unlock This Content.]
I was prolly sucking up like a fan boy.
Post super 6.

I told him he made it look easy. He said Kessler punches hard,but froch punches even harder. E said it wasnít any at all. We shook hands, and he and his family drove away.

Fentonís is awesome.

Ward and Bradley are good friends. They hangout alot, most of the time in their interviews you could always see Andre Ward or Bradley when in the background respectively when one of them are interviewed.

Sorry just needed to get that off my chest, don't know if anyone else agrees, but the dude hardly ever keeps it real imo and I just wish ESPN would find a new boxing guy.
... both Ward and Bradley are excellent boxing commentators... but, unfortunately, they were both awful on Saturday...
