I like Mauro, as often as I hear him call fights. His new podcast, "#TheShow w/@MauroRanallo" is pretty damn good. It's a weekly combat sport show, he covers MMA, boxing, and pro wrestling. I recommend it. Phone Post 3.0

Good for Mauro. He's the one of the best MMA commentators around.

Cool. I thought he did a great job on the Judah-Garcia fight.

Mauro has transitioned very well to boxing, his play by play skills have gotten much better. I prefer him over Goldberg for sure at this point. His enthusiasm with Bernstein's professionalism is a great match.

This.

Mauro's style is perfect for boxing.

This is true. I even recall Joe Rogan poking fun of the way he taks on his toes...but even our own Joe Hogan has never got to call a Mayweather fight.

This is the top of the mountain in combat sports.

Congrats to him.

GriffinQ - Oddly enough, I actually prefer his boxing commentary so I'm ok with this Phone Post 3.0

That's because when he calls boxing he's not constantly trying to put himself over with stupid puns, jokes, and wrestling references.  He just calls the action like a professional.  And he' great at it.  Not sure why he couldn't do that when he called MMA.

I don't care much for his MMA commentary, but enjoy his boxing commentary.
