Malignaggi: Broner is The Easiest Fight They Offered

WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi was one of the most frustrated men in Manchester last November when a right hand to Ricky Hatton's ribs brought an end to his hopes of a rematch against the big-money Briton.

Malignaggi had been ringside to watch Hatton's comeback bout against Vyacheslav Senchenko with the hope of starting to hype up a return fight just as soon as the Hitman had done the business.

The fast-talking Malignaggi returned to the US looking to secure a different super-fight, and he was not kept waiting for long with the announcement he will face self-styled superstar in waiting Adrien Broner in Brooklyn on June 22.

Malignaggi said: "Adrien is nothing more than a Floyd Mayweather wannabe. He tries to fight like him and he talks and breathes like him. He needs to get his own character. It's a big insecurity for him."

Since being stopped in the penultimate round by Amir Khan in New York in 2010, Malignaggi has rebounded with five straight wins, including claiming the WBA crown with a stoppage win over Senchenko in April last year.

And while Malignaggi has come up short against the likes of Khan, Hatton and Miguel Cotto, it is also fair to say the Cincinnati, Ohio native Broner has hardly faced opponents to set the world alight.

Malignaggi added: "Broner is coming up a weight class against a real man and he is going to get hit a lot too. Guys like (Broner) are a dime a dozen. I am fortunate to get these kinds of opportunities and usually I am able to upset the apple-cart.

"I didn't get my titles handed to me, I earned them. What happens to Broner when it isn't easy? He's never been put in this situation before. I thought this was the easiest fight they offered to me. They're giving me an ex-junior-lightweight. It was a no-brainer. He has good speed and power but a lot of what he does is overrated."

[QUOTE=PBP;13345854]Paulie is full of ****. He was offered Mosley, Diego Chaves and Broner. You could be the biggest Broner hater in the world but still know who the toughest fight out of those 3 are.[/QUOTE] Nice poster my dude... good…

I'd forgotten about that Hatton comeback fight already :lol1: I'm cheering for Paulie but I don't think he has much of a chance.

The last time Paulie talked this much trash was against Khan and we all know how that went. Paulies best gifts is his gift for gab. He will lose this fight and go into announcing. I think he lost his…
