RIP Mr Lederman.
I thought many of his cards were spot on. Always perked me up to see him disagree with the commentators sometimes.
RIP, agreed with him more often than not. A boxing staple of my childhood.
If you think you can......you can, if you think you can't .......you're right!
RIP Harold. The death of any human being, regardless of age or condition, is always a sad moment.
That being said, I see no need to sugarcoat it. I always thought Harold was pretty much useless in his role in boxing. Overstating the obvious... not always scoring fights correctly... suffering from the common malaise of going with the flow of rounds and not seeing the other guy pull out the occasional round here and there... in short... pretty much useless. He was biased as anyone else, and sometimes even more so.
On a side note, I remember having a mental picture of Harold before ever seeing his face, and being all surprised how his face and age didn't go with his high-pitched, screechy voice.
Still, a nice person... and my prayers for him and his surviving family.
I liked his scoring and he was generally right.
Now I know what he looks like, iconic commentator and voice.
Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
