By Hector Islas,

Mexico's Pablo Cesar Cano, the interim-super lightweight champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA), is pretty confident about moving up to the welterweight division to challenge WBA champion Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi. Cano (25-1-1, 19 KOs) against Malignaggi (31-4, 7 KOs) will take place on October 20th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The main event will feature WBC/WBA 140-pound champion Danny Garcia in a rematch with Mexican legend Erik "El Terrible" Morales.

He doesn't view Malignaggi as a dangerous opponent at welterweight.

"He's a good boxer, but he's shorter than me. He's at welterweight but he's not a puncher. He just left the super lightweight division. I have everything to gain and little to lose. My title will not be at stake. I have no problem with moving up a division and I know that I can beat him," Cano said.

If Cano wins the fight, he plans to vacate the title and return to the junior welterweight division to pursue the winner of the Garcia-Morales rematch.

even tho i don't like pauli, & iznt really a big puncher, he's got some skill. it'll be tuff for cano to find him. he better attack the body. if he times his punches & is willing to take a few to land 1 good hit, he might stand a chance. cano has a ton of heart, but duznt have a very tuff hide. h...

Everyone feels like they can beat Paulie he has no power and he's slowed down a bit. Plus he has a name to make money off of. Bantamweigts will be calling him out soon...

Cano gives Paulie a good chance of getting two stoppage victories in a row, which will mean that pigs can fly and hell has officially frozen over. :usa1:
