Broner Has No Interest in Giving Malignaggi a Rematch

By Luis Sandoval

Adrien Broner secured his third world title when he defeated Paulie Malignaggi last June at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY in his welterweight debut. Broner won via split decision but Malignaggi felt he should’ve been awarded the victory. Since then, Paulie has stated he wants a rematch with Broner and even took to Twitter to once again express his desire for a second fight.

Recent reports from Richard Schaefer and Broner himself confirm they are looking in a different direction as Broner’s next opponent will likely be hard hitting Marcos Maidana. BoxingScene caught up with Broner and asked him if he would still be interested in tangling with Malignaggi again.

“Negative. I rather see him fight another guy and I’ll support Paulie because at the end of the day Paulie is a friend of mine. But this is a business so when he fights me, it’s f**k Paulie. But now that our business is over, I would like to see Paulie finish his career or stay a commentator because he can talk his ass off” Broner would tell BoxingScene.

Leading up to their fight, Broner and Malignaggi put on one of the most memorable build ups as they verbally attacked each other in New York during the Danny Garcia-Zab Judah press conference and then continued their verbal warfare during their press conference is Las Vegas, NV.

While Paulie is insistent on a rematch, Broner is looking to move on and in the process add another title in a fourth weight class to his resume.

“[Paulie], he’s a hell of a fighter. Slick fighter. I did what I had to do to get the victory. And now I’m a three time world champion in three different weight classes. I did that at 23 and now I’m [almost] 24 [and] I will be a four time world champion in four weight classes. But Maidana is first on the list so we’re going to worry about Maidana” said Broner.

All indications say Broner’s next fight will be at welterweight again but if he wants that fourth title at a fourth weight class, the move down in weight will certainly need to happen. Broner is more than willing to come down and fight in different weight classes if it makes sense.

“If there is a name big enough I will make whatever weight my opponent wants to make” said the current WBC Lightweight and WBA Welterweight champion.
Broner’s next fight will take place November 9th and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas has been put on hold for that date.

Broner now playing the Mayweather card, talking like he understands "the business" when it comes to rematches.... They only demand a rematch when they lose or draw with someone. Broner never dominated Paulie, couldn't hold him off, didn't hit hard…

No need for a rematch. Took his title and his side-piece. Paulie's got nothing else to offer.
