Malignaggi: Broner is Everything That is Wrong With Boxing

They tried. Or at least they said they would.

In the end, Paulie Malginaggi and Adrien Broner could not put their personal attacks to the side. Is it hyping the fight or it just getting old?

Both fighters continued their war of words at the final press conference at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon. They will put the words to the side and go at it on Saturday night in the same venue.

The bout will headline a Golden Boy Promotions card and will be part of a televised tripleheader on Showtime, starting at 9PM ET/ 6PM PT.

Promoting fights with words between fighters is nothing new. However, Malignaggi and Broner have made personal attacks during the buildup to the fight that would make talk shows like Jerry Springer or Maury Povich cringe.

Thursday’s press conference was no different as both tried to outdo one another with while each was at the podium.

“At the end of the day, I’m going to knock him the (sic) out,” said Broner, who did not step onto the stage until before he spoke. “You (Malignaggi) aren’t going to be relevant in boxing except for commentating.”

Malginaggi made reference to the mysterious Jessica, whom both have spoken about at press conferences and over the phone. It is not hard to find on YouTube channels both making references to her.

“What’s the name of my Mom?” Malignaggi asked her while at the podium. “If she dated me for, how long, six-seven months? She would know who my Mom is. She wasn’t my girlfriend. She was someone I had sex with. It’s 2013. I admit it.”

“At the end of the day, Broner is a creation of everything that is wrong with boxing. (Advisor) Al Haymon took care of him. I was a prospect at one time like he was. You know who my first opponent was when I fought for a world title? Miguel Cotto. Who did he get? (Vicente) Rodriguez. I don’t even know his first name. He hasn’t had the detours like I’ve had in my career.”

While Malignaggi has used the gift of gab in the buildup to this, and some consider him to the better trash-talker of the two, one has to wonder if all the hype has gotten under his skin and not Broner’s.

Malignaggi even brought up an alleged incident at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood years ago, while both were in the locker room. Before Broner fought Daniel Ponce De Leon, Malignaggi said Broner allegedly asked him to give him advice on how to prepare for 10 rounds fights, something Broner was worried about.

“Remember that?,” Malignaggi asked Broner on the dais. “You were worried about that and you got a gift decision because of Al Haymon.”

After the press conference and face-off between both fighters was over, Malignaggi did not stay and abruptly left.

Although a majority of media predict Broner to defeat Malignaggi, the hype and buildup to the fight, both good and bad, will definitely lead to more people watching on Saturday night.

i think broner is actually doing a good job. ppl can pan his opponent choice all they want but one fight that sets up a even bigger fight with maidana, is definitely worth it. he has his whole career to go, he hasnt ducked anyone but yet ppl act as if he has.

[QUOTE=richardt]No, actually Pac jumping two weight divisions to fight Oscar was far more respectable!

[QUOTE=richardt]Lets see, since 2010, Mathysee has fought top notch fighters in Judah, Alexander, Soto, and top contender Olusegun and Broner has fought Litzau, Reese, Escobedo, and a small PDL.
