Jim Lampley and Roy jones, Jr. had to remind Merchant twice that it was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Who in American doesn't know that? who in professional sports doesn't know that?
Merchant's philosophical rants were at times aloof, misplaced and self-absorbed. He also seemed to take great pleasure in trying to make a fool of the fighters he interviewed after the bouts he covered. He is out of touch and he has long exuded arrogance in the interviews.
I think the telecast will be a little more enjoyable moving forward.
