I think he actually knows his shit, he's one of the very few commentators I tend to agree with.

One of the very few boxers who can articulate what he actually wants to say, can't stand boxers who  try and sound clever and fail, Paulie can actually speak which is rare when your career has been taking blows to the head year after year.
