This has also helped him make big deals with video game manufacturers to use his likeness and voice for pretty much every boxing game of the last 10 years.
Larry Merchant (born February 11, 1931) is an American former sportswriter, a longtime commentator for HBO Sports presentations of “HBO World Championship Boxing”, “Boxing After Dark” and HBO pay per view telecasts, and is considered “the greatest television boxing analyzer of all time” by ESPN Boxing analyzer Dan Rafael.
In September 2011, following the Victor Ortiz vs. Floyd Mayweather WBC Welterweight title fight, Mayweather called for Merchant to be fired due to Merchant saying that Mayweather cheated. After Merchant forced Mayweather to react to enthusiasts who thought that he had taken advantage of Ortiz’ apology (resulting in his triumph by knock-out), Mayweather developed irritated by Merchant’s questioning and interrupted Merchant. During Merchant’s interview immediately following the fight between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Miguel Cotto (May 5, 2012), Merchant acknowledged that Mayweather had apologized the night before the bout and he’d accepted the apology. Since leaving HBO Merchant has provided commentary for the international English language feed of some Top Ranking encouraged boxing shows.
