Yesterday we had our own Johnny Signorella and HBO’s resident judge Harold Lederman. We usually air Saturday’s at 11:05 AM PT.

HAROLD & JOHNNY PUT FORTH A GREAT SHOW!

Talking about mainly Cotto-Margarito “post fight,” Harold and I went through a year of HBO boxing, discussed Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao, the 154 lb. weight class and more. Signorella was ringside at the Cotto fight and offers some interesting insight. From 1-10, this show was a solid 9

COMMENTS

  1. Why didn’t you ask Harold Lederman about the reason behind his scoring on the Pacquiao-Marquez III fight? We all know that he scored the fight for Pacquiao and he has a reason for it but you never ask….it could have shown your objectivity knowing you are presenting both sides of the issue (controversy on the Pacquaio-Marquez III fight)

    Fernandez sometimes has a “sparring partner mentality” when he’s interviewing big name guests. I don’t believe Pedro knows he’s doing it so perhaps now that he’s reading this, he will be better prepared and will stop trying to be too nice to his future big name guests when it comes to asking hard hitting boxing questions.

  3. There was no controversy, except for those who think everytime a guy wins a close fight the other guy was robbed. Lara vs Williams..thats a robbery, this fight was close and very hard to score. Leberman normally scores for the aggressor and the guy who throws more punches, thus he gave Manny the benefit of the doubt in the close rounds. Marquez, who fought a little too cautiously cost himself the fight by not being busy enough. Did you see Marquez’s face after the fight, it’s obvious that Manny’s punches were doing damage as well even though Marquez’s blows were much cleaner for the judges to see.

  4. There are only so many question a host can ask with the span of the segments…How about calling in sometime EISI when these guests are on the show? I believe they’ll be happy to answer those questions.

  5. The problem is Lederman did not score it “Close.” He had Pac winning by a very comfortable margin.

    First of all, There was another guess name Signorella (forgot his first name) who was asked about the Pacquiao-Marquez III fight on which that person said he thought that Marquez had won that fight and later on, Lederman was the next interviewee. And guess what? he never asked Lederman anything about that fight!……

    Secondly, yes Pedro can only asked so much but that is hottest issue that is going on right now (Pacquiao’s controversial win over Marquez on their third fight) and it was really a let down when he never asked Harold to balance out his first guest’s opinion (Marquez had won the fight according to that guy named Signorella)…

    Think about objectivity by presenting both sides of the issue…. Pedro had failed on that count

  7. Eisi, the topic with Harold was about certain fighters. I think Lederman erred, most people feel that way. Don’t tell me how to do radio and I won’t tell you how to wash dishes! Manny Pacquiao is on the downslide. Looking mediocre against Mosley and then picked apart by JMM, you Filipinos better start praying he never faces Floyd, because that is a “Np Contest,” meaning he couldn’t hit Floyd with a lead pipe!

  8. The referee for the Cotto Margarito fight looked so disgustingly out of shape, and walked around that ring so slowly it is amazing they picked him for this bout. He almost let Roy Jones be killed in the ring and in reading the expose on him being removed from ever being a local judge again for literally torturing the poor and minorities in is courtrooms causing massive lawsuits is is very puzzling how NYSAC could over look that.

    I read the articles on him by NJ Judicial Review saying, “He does not have the integrity to ever sit as a judge again,” for lying and abusing people like a little Napoleon run amok. Does NYSAC actually believe this stuffed frog is better than anyone else? Are they blind to his physical appearance and what he allowed to happen to Roy Jones in Russia? What a political hack who looks like a bloated troll in that ring. Being used a lot does not make a good official, prostitutes are used a lot too.

  9. A little rough there on Scott. If this was the NFL, Steve Smoger might get to run the clock. In history, there will always be a what jack Fiske used to as “brave” referee. His reputation to allow fights to go a little longer is something both managers and promoters want. Plus, he might have dirty pictures of somebody, cause what he allowed Roy to take was “nasty!” The secret to being a good referee is find the perfect median to stop a fight. smoger lets him go. He looked a little pale even for Smoger so who knows, he might have been a little “jet lagged.” I’ve seen it both ways. Bring the officials in five days to a week before to get some sleep and be ready to come the weekend. Or they get off the plane the night before or the morning of the fight, that’s why my friend Mills Lane got out of boxing. Having done like 40 one hour shows for his then HOT syndicated TV show, “Judge Mills Lane,” Mills had a little sleep, after the red eye east to west cost arriving the morning of the fight. That was the one where he pushed Bernard Hopkins out of the ring in 1998 was his last. Mills was my broadcast partner with now Hall of Famer Al Bernstein, in a late night once a month TV broadcast we were doing together.
