Snoop Dogg turned his hand to boxing commentary on Saturday night

Written by on 30/11/2020

The 49-year-old rap star featured on the commentary of the much-hyped bout between boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and Snoop kept viewers entertained with his humorous comments.

During the pay-per-view event, he joked: “This s*** like two of my uncles fighting at the barbecue.

“‘Get your uncle out of it, get him out! Meet me in the backyard, I’m tired of this s***.'”

Snoop openly supported Jones Jr during the fight, rather than seeking to be impartial in his role as a commentator.
But the rap star’s efforts were still widely praised on social media, with basketball legend LeBron James hailing Snoop on Twitter.

He said on the micro-blogging platform: “My Unk @SnoopDogg is simply the greatest at whatever he does man!! Swiss Army Knife++++++ (sic)”

Meanwhile, Snoop previously insisted that in spite of his success, he’s determined to remain humble.

The rapper – who released his debut album, ‘Doggystyle’, in 1993 – shared: “I never forget where I came from.

“I remember eating a bowl of Wheaties and sharing hot dogs with my brothers, taking baths with my cousin. Not really having much, wearing hand-me-down clothes from my cousin. Waiting to get his clothes that he couldn’t fit no more.

“You know those things inspired me to do what I’m doing now. And once I made it, I always had that reflection in my mind to go back. And I always wanted to help those who couldn’t help themselves because I was in a position to help.”
