Lampley’s commentary of Pac-JMM 3 was terrible. Nacho never told Marquez to put on the brakes late in that fight, yet he deduced that from HBO’s p iss poor interpreter stating Nacho told JMM he was winning the fight. Conversely, Nacho told Marquez to take it to Pac in the 12th.Posted December 15, 2012 5:16 am

Heavily Biased Opinion
HBO really needs an option to Mute commentary! Jim Lampley has become so biased in favoring the HBO start fighter, that his perception of fights is not only causing deception to the viewer, it is really inaccurate. Once among the best ever, Jim has turned to little more than a pom-pom shrill for the HBO contracted fighter. HBO has turned into “Heavily Biased Opinion.”Posted December 15, 2012 5:13 am
Lampley gets plenty of credit. He’s in the IBHOF, isn’t he? He’s a millionaire many times over isn’t he? Poor guy, some fans on a boxing site don’t like his cheer-leading style or the fact that he’s a dirt bag that beats up young women. Boo hoo for the poor millionaire.Posted December 14, 2012 7:13 pm
Haha, that was classic stuff. Lamps runs to safety and leaves his daughter somewhere in the middle of that Bowe-Golota fiasco. Classy guy.Posted December 14, 2012 7:11 pm
Say what you will about Lampley; that does not change the fact that he’s good at what he does. Unfortunately, he has some haters who do not want to give him credit, so we leave it at that. More and More of ESB posting is become a “hate party” — up to a year ago, the comments were more balanced.Posted December 14, 2012 2:44 pm

Hey Lamps, ever find your daughter?Posted December 14, 2012 1:05 pm
Guy gets bashed all the time on boxing boards but this topic seems overrun by the Jim Lampley fan club.Posted December 14, 2012 2:15 am
Lampley is a matuer commentator with a great voicePosted December 14, 2012 1:52 am
I don’t see any Lampley bashing going on here. All I see are facts. Biased, roots for house fighters, fined for domestic violence, gets emotional when he doesn’t like the outcome. How much of that is untrue?Posted December 14, 2012 1:20 am
Everyone with a subscription to HBO has a right to bash anything that is shown on the network. They’re paying for it aren’t they? That gives them the right.Posted December 14, 2012 1:13 am
The fight game is a cool show. Probably not for everybody since opinions differ; however, nobody has a right to bash Lampley. It’s probably because they don’t have a real life nor real work to do, so they find it easy to pick on Lampley.Posted December 14, 2012 12:47 am

What a load of crap below. Lampley is subjected to criticism because he a biased commentator with a rooting interest. People PAY MONEY for their HBO subscriptions and as such, have a right to say whatever they want about the HIGH PROFILE, HIGHLY PAID on air talent. Yeah Lamps is over 50 – So tell him to stop going after girls UNDER 30 and then BEATING them as he did with that girl a few years ago – which got his ass fined to the tune of $10,000. Oh, poor misunderstood Jimmy…Posted December 13, 2012 9:20 pm
is too bad that ifnormed and articulate commentatior such as JL subject to such type of comment as from bubka. so favored fighter bites so-called “dust.” this happens many times and does not make for either they “whiny” or, as in this case bubka saying, “titty baby.”
lampley is over 50. illogical conclusions and attacks such as this? they detract from the boxing “world” and despite problems, better aspects as well. would do well to realize that expresion such as “KTFO” is not only vulgar, but mark of the imbecile.
likely to have to look this word up, but much easeier to simply level the “semantic bazooka” of “titty baby,” which in fact–for infant–is healthiest way to be. but bubka? no doubt raised on artifical formula. thus, qed.
compnay man. house fighter. judements left to mere emotion response to interpret, presumes idiots reading. this is why bad for boxing, reality, whole universe.
really, when you think about it.
bah!Posted December 13, 2012 9:05 pm
Wonder what excuses Mr. Company Man will have this time for his house fighter. Heard he was near tears after his man got KTFO. You whiny titty baby, Jim.Posted December 13, 2012 8:08 pm
