Cano: I Want Malignaggi Rematch, They Probably Don't
By Bill Emes
WBA interim-junior welterweight champion Pablo Cesar Cano (25-2-1, 19KOs) wants a rematch with Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7KOs), the WBA's welterweight champion. On Saturday, Malignaggi won a twelve round split decision over Cano, but many of the fans in attendence and some of the ringside reports had scored the fight in favor of the tough Mexican. Cano is not expecting to get a second opportunity against Malignaggi, who is angling to get a lucrative rematch with Ricky Hatton.
"I thought I did better work than Paulie and I didn't get the decision. One judge in my favor and two in his favor. Even though the knockdown came in the eleventh, I thought I was already ahead. The corner did advise me to be more aggressive because they might stop the fight because of the cut, but the cut was not a problem and I kept going and going. I would love a rematch, I don't think Malignaggi's people will want to do it," Cano said to BoxingScene.com.
It was a real close fight, i certainly wouldn't be against a rematch. Can't see it happening though..Paulie's eyes will now be firmly on the Hatton Vs Senchenko fight.Comment by ddangerous on 10-22-2012
