Boxing commentator Chuck Giampa has worst TV debut ever (video)

Jan 24, 2012, 11:42 AM EDT


Chuck Giampa is a former boxing judge who was making his debut on Showtime Boxing on Friday night to add commentating perspective from a judge’s point of view. The only problem was that when the lights went on, Giampa just got one line out before he completely froze. I’ve seen deer in my headlights look more comfortable.

Those watching this at work, please be advised that one word Giampa did manage to get out was a despondent “sh**”.

Showtime’s Al Bernstein, who introduced Giampa, just went on like nothing happened following the disaster … which is almost as funny. Couldn’t he have blamed technical difficulties or something?

Anyway, I guess we now have boxing’s “Boom goes the dynamite” moment.

    I don’t know – that seemed like a pretty fair assessment of the minds of judges to me.

    I don’t know how these broadcasts work, was he reading from a teleprompter that failed? That’s kinda how it looked like to me.
