In a relatively short period of time Max Kellerman has become one the most respected analysts in the sport of boxing. His gift for ringside commentary and ability to frame the historical significance of a fight landed him at HBO in 2005. In April of 2006, he was named as the boxing commentator for the HBO Boxing After Dark late-night series. In June of 2007, Kellerman joined the World Championship Boxing broadcast team and is now the full-time ringside commentator and post-interviewer.
In addition to his on-air duties, Kellerman is the host of "Face-Off," a popular and cutting-edge roundtable segment that features Max with two fighters in a face-to-face setting that has produced memorable fireworks. The segment airs on the network as well as running across all of the HBO Sports digital media platforms.
Prior to HBO, Kellerman was a regular contributor/guest host on MSNBC's The Situation with Tucker Carlson, hosted the series "King of Vegas" for Spike TV, and worked for Fox Sports Net where he anchored his own sports talk and interview program, I, Max and provided color commentary for their "Sunday Night Fights" series. Kellerman also hosted a popular daily radio program for ESPN 1050 AM in New York for three years.
It was at ESPN that the boxing analyst really cut his teeth hosting the show Around the Horn and contributing on the network's boxing series Friday Night Fights.
From June 2010 thru June 2012, Kellerman joined CNN and appeared regularly on the cable news channel's studio programming, offering insights and commentary on hot-button sports issues and personalities.
In January of 2011, Kellerman moved to Los Angeles and hosts a popular mid-day radio program on 710 ESPN Radio.
A native New Yorker, Kellerman is a 1998 graduate of Columbia University.
