    Very few times in the or very little at all during the main event of Canelo vs May between rounds, Showtime never shows the corner talking to the fighters giving them advice or change of game plan.

    I noticed this as well during the Ghost vs May ppv main event as well.

    Absolutely hate this as a boxing fan who watches for skill and game planning.

    Anyone else notice this?

    When HBO boxing matches occur, they use the entire 50 seconds to switch from each corner showing what is being said.

    Yeah I like hearing what the corners have to say. The commentating us rough too. They couldn't have been more biased towards Floyd than if it were Floyd Sr. and Roger doing it.

    I like them both.

    Lately I have been enjoying Paulies commentary alot. he knows his shit. Since Steward passed away, Ill take paulie over anyone that HBO has

    I like to see the corner speak also but this is not a huge deal as some dont even speak english. It is what it is

    I generally enjoy Lamprey a lot as a boxing commentator because he has done it for so long. He has great energy and knowledge of the sport.

    Loved Manny Steward, rest his soul. Hate Max Kellerman, use to enjoy him but now to so much. Bring back Larry Merchant.

    Roy Jones Jr has been doing well as of late.

    Not a fan of Bernstein, he makes me want to sleep. Paulie is solid. Mauro is pride to me, boxing he sucks.

    They dont translate that good. I dont know if you have friends that speak different languages but my coach used to get pissed by what he was saying. I personally felt like he was under pressure and he only had a few seconds to really interpret. I understood

    The reason why I made this thread was because I wanted to see what Canelo's corner was saying to him since he obviously never changed course during the fight.

    I can't remember one time show time showing Canelo's corner and interpreting what his coaches were saying.

    Amateurs I tell ya

    I've been with my boy PAC since 01, not gonna dessert him after one loss just like how I will always support Fedor and Wand even though their best days are long gone.

    Have you watched the past few HBO/Floyd fights? They were extremely biased against Floyd. At times straight to his face, the very guy whose making them millions.

    Actually, he's one of the most biased in the business.

    Who Jerry Olaya the interpreter? That's what the photo is for. Max said that interpreters weren't any good.
