Larry Merchant, known for his hard hitting (pun intended) reporting on HBO's boxing presentations with a net worth of $7 Million. He is a longtime commentator of HBO's World Championship Boxing, Boxing After Dark and all of HBO's pay-per-view telecasts. Originally from Brooklyn New York, he has always had an interest in sports in general. Originally a columnist for The Philadelphia Daily News and The New York Post, he moved to HBO in 1978 as a sports analyst and has stayed ever since. Like Madden was for football, Larry Merchant has carved out a place for him in the boxing world, where he is defined as the THE announcer of the sport. It isn't HBO boxing without Larry Merchant. This has also helped him make large deals with video game makers 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 analyst of all time" by ESPN Boxing analyst Dan Rafael.
Merchant was born in Brooklyn, New York. In 1978, Merchant joined HBO Sports as an analyst. Prior to joining HBO Sports, Merchant was a well-regarded sports columnist with The Philadelphia Daily News and a general reporter for The New York Post.
The current HBO Boxing team consists of Merchant, Jim Lampley, and Emanuel Steward for championship and pay-per-view fights. Previous lineups have included Sugar Ray Leonard, George Foreman and Roy Jones Jr., with the latter two having clashed words with Merchant. Merchant has also clashed with the unofficial judge Harold Lederman.
Among the fighters who have clashed with Merchant include Mike Tyson, Oscar de la Hoya and, more recently, Floyd Mayweather Jr. The De La Hoya incident came during his fight with Pernell Whitaker. When De la Hoya entered the ring to Mariachi music, Merchant stated that while he loved Mariachi music, he felt that it "stunk" in this particular situation. Merchant would later apologize on the air after De La Hoya tried to have him removed from HBO.
Merchant is well known for his post fight interviews which feature his hard hitting, blunt questions and confrontational interview style. These have drawn both praise and ire in the past. Fans have claimed them to be candid and honest while detractors consider them to be purposely agitational and insensitive at times. An example of this occurred when Vernon Forrest won a controversial decision in 2006 over Ike Quartey. When Forrest thanked those close to him, Merchant quipped, "Would you also like to thank the judges?"
In 1985, Merchant received the Sam Taub Award for Boxing Broadcast Journalism presented by the Boxing Writers As
