War Jim Ross! Hopefully the boxing industry treats JR well and not screw him over like WWE did.

''Zab zab!! don't do it, look at this...ooohh gawdd!'' Haymon is a genius. If Haymon were to run BET, it'd be a paradigm shift in American Popular Culture. :popcorn:

Kevin Kelley. The man that almost exposed Hamed. Love his take on boxing. Him and JR = the return of good commentary.
