Broner: Malignaggi's Feelings Were Hurt, I Got To Him

By Mike Coppinger

By now, everyone has seen the vitriolic press conference in Las Vegas promoting the welterweight title fight between Adrien Broner and Paulie Malignaggi, which takes place June 22 on Showtime.

But insults and name-calling aside, Broner has respect for Malignaggi. He believes "The Magic Man" will show him -- and fans -- something they haven't seen.

"Everybody knows if talent goes up against another good talent, then it brings the best talent out of the higher talent," said Broner, 23. "With that being said, Paulie's a great fighter, skillful fighter -- world class fighter -- so it's going to bring the best out of Adrien Broner."

Broner (26-0, 22 KOs) says he wasn't affected by the disrespect, but feels the same can't be said for his opponent.

"His feelings are hurt -- you can tell," said Broner. "With me it's normal, I'm just doing what AB do. He was really hurt, I got to him.

"Coming from where I come from, this is what I go through everyday. There's gonna be haters, there's gonna be outsiders, you just gotta overcome. You just have to stay focused and keep your eyes on the prize."

While the fight is in Malignaggi's backyard of Brooklyn, N.Y., Broner believes he'll able to convince some fans to change teams.

"If you don't leave a Broner fan by the end of the night," Broner said,  "I'll stop boxing."
