    Default Lennox Lewis... TERRIBLE AS A COMMENTATOR ON PBC!!!

    He just is... lolol.... He jumbles words, says the obvious and jumps in with nonsensical jibberish that is almost always off.
    Bigger man George, bigger punch!

    Was he that bad? He is normally articulate and measured when he speaks.

    Yes he’s bad in general, kind of the same way Foreman was bad. He sounds more articulate because of his accent and the way he postures and pauses before saying nothing, kind of like Eubank sr though not on that level. Ive seen him interviewed more low key and he comes across fine, commentating just isnt for everyone I think.

    Seems he picked up right where he left on HBO. In fairness the whole crew of Chris Meyers and Goosen need some work. Lewis is also the first commentator I've ever seen who wrapped himself in a blanket during a broadcast because it was too cold .

    Not everyone's cut out to be a commentator. Lennox could be the commentator at a World Cup final and put half the people to sleep.

    Which proves how British he really is (: No Canadian would feel the cold so much.

    Lennox did the same when he fought and beat Bruno in Cardiff. It must be his lucky blanket.

    That was his go to comment for years working as a colour man. The commentator would tee him up with a comment about the fight that would give him the chance to explain some techical aspect of boxing or the fighter in the ring to the viewers and Lewis would just pause and say "absolutely". He's actually got much better at the job over the years.

    LL has a high ring IQ, but doesn't have the ability to explain it. Some use the word dumb, to which he probably is.
    LL IMO is a low IQ dude with millions and millions of dollars.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    Being talkative is one thing, but that does not make you a talk show host!
