Thumbs down Anyone else hate Showtime for big fights?

It seems their broadcast team is amateur. You got guys like gus johnson who doesn't know a damn thing about boxing and other nobodies. And the ring is always so amateur looking with all those stupid adverts and stupid colors, I like the old school blue canvas red ring.

Quite the opposite. Johnson sucks but Bernstein is still THE best in the business and Tarver is the best fighter analyst on TV.

Gus Johnson's play by play doesn't fit boxing the way it does other sports, but Bernstein and Tarver are very good.

Antonio Tarver is excellent. He's very articulate and always fair in his comments about non-American boxers.

Steve Albert is okay, and Gus Johnson isn't too bad.

Al Bernstein and Steve Farhood are awful, they are biased against European fighters and always discredit them when they see an opportunity. They score close rounds against them (Holyfield-Valuev, which Bernstein was watching from a screen in the US while he was commentating) claim point deductions are unfair when they are not (Abraham-Miranda I) claim fair stoppages are early stoppages (Bernstein went on and on about the Sheika and Mitchell stoppages against Calzaghe) never give them fair credit (Bernstein: "there's something wrong with Lacy tonight " - no, Calzaghe was what was wrong with Lacy

how could you possibly say Al Bernstein is awful and Gus Johnson "isn't too bad"? One's spent his life following boxing, the other prefers MMA to boxing.

Tarver and Bernstein are good, but the graphics are kind of old school. Showtime does a good job overall

HBO's production quality is better than Showtime's for sure. I'm not huge on either network's announcement crew, but I like HBO's overall look and feel compared to Showtime's.
