According to a recent report from the Sporting News, former WWE commentator Mauro Ranallo will be doing play-by-play for the much-anticipated upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. The fight is being broadcast on Showtime PPV, which Ranallo has been a part of since 2012.
Ranallo was a member of the “Smackdown Live” commentary team from December of 2015 through March of 2017. He had been linked to a bulling controversy with current commentator JBL, which was rumored to be the main reason for Ranallo’s departure from the company. He has since denied those allegations.
Mamma mia! I’ve said many times that I believe that this man was the best part of “Smackdown Live” when he was on the show, and the energy and enthusiasm that he will bring to this super-fight will be nothing short of magical. Also, it is a testament to his hard work and passion to have the honor of calling one of the most anticipated matches in recent history. Congratulations!
