Malignaggi: Broner is a Punk, a Sissy, Beats Dishwashers!

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (37-4, 7KOs) has unleashed only a minor portion of his verbal fury, according to the boxer. He wants to punish WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (26-0, 22KOs), who is moving up by two weight divisions to challenge Malignaggi on June 22nd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Malignaggi has no respect for Broner's rise in the sport, stating that he believes the boxer's influental adviser, Al Haymon, helped him secure a good position in the sport by beating soft competition.

"[This fight] pays well. I felt it was the easiest out of all the fights they offered me. It was just too good to pass up. You just haven't seen him with a world class fighter. Anything a world class fighter does will affect Adrien Broner. Anyone could look good fighting dishwashers from across the street, which is essentially what he's been fighting. Let's step up to guys who can reach you and punch you in the mouth. I think he's a sissy and he's a punk," Malignaggi told

"I’m dismissive of him in general. I don't think he’s that good. I think he's got talent but it takes a lot more than talent to survive on the world class level. He's lucky he's got Al Haymon behind him, where he's had to fight opponents where he didn't have to show his talent to win the fight."

"See someone like Danny Garcia, he has talent and a lot of character and he showed it tonight and he shows it every time he fights because he always faces top opposition. Adrien Broner is a sissy and Adrien Broner is a punk and I'm going to bring that right out of him. I think it's a misstep for Al Haymon and when I'm beating the living sh*t out of him, they are going to regret this move."

Cab drivers, dishwashers. Don't these guys know it's dangerous to insult the working class?

I like Paulie and I more or less agree with his assessment of Broner. However, there is no way in hell that I see Broner not demolishing him. Paulie is in for a long night. He can talk with the…
