WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7 KOs), and WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (26-0, 22 KOs), are ready to go to war on Saturday night, live on Showtime, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Broner is moving up by two weight divisions to take the fight. The two fighters continued to exchange words at Thursday's final press conference.
"I got to put on a hell of a show. I will be on Saturday night a three time world champion at age 23. I'm going to let Paulie talk his little bullsh*t because at the end of the day we have to fight Saturday. I'm going to knock him the f*** out. He's never been knocked out, I'm going to knock him the f*** out," Broner said.
Malignaggi is not impressed by Broner and expects to beat him up badly.
"He has talent but he doesn't have the rest of the package. Al Haymon is behind Adrien Broner and that's why he's at where he is. He is Al Haymon's creation. I fought Miguel Cotto in my first world title fight. He fought a guy, I can't remember his first name. This guy is nothing and I'm going to show him on Saturday night how nothing he is. He is Al Haymon's creation. Come Saturday I'm going to beat your ass," Malignaggi said.
