Ben Shalom is definitely young and so am I, and I think the vision Our distance is equal to how we can make BOXXER show the big event to the people sitting, watching Sky.

They are working very hard to make great things happen. I believe my role is important to the great show, and I’m grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given with these two teams.”

He is young, energetic, has a great voice and has a special advantage – Big Mo’s power is more than any other big man. “We are taller and his vocal range is greater than his reach. He brings so much energy to every announcement he makes.”
