HBO Taunted Mayweather

Posted on 11/15/2010

The greatest coward in boxing history Floyd Mayweather Jr. was taunted during the HBO pay-per-view telecast of the Pacquiao-Margarito superfight in Dallas.

During the post-fight wrap up, on-air conversation between Jim Lampley and Max Kellerman, a very interesting exchange took place between the two HBO announcers…

Lampley stated,”So years from now we’ll say we know Mayweather was a genius. He waited for Pacquiao to fight five bigger guys. He watched him fight a guy who is seventeen pounds larger.
Maybe he’ll take the fight (with Pacquiao) next week?”

Kellerman responded with a chuckle, which made Lampley smile himself.

To which Kellerman added, with a tone of amusement in his voice, “We’ll seeeee!”

It was quality commentating by the HBO team. One of the female viewers at our fight party named Lynn, a long time boxing fan, remarked after the Lampley-Kellerman exchange, “They’re taunting him now.”
