Malignaggi: Broner's face will look like it went in a blender

by Edward Chaykovksy

WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7KOs) is looking to punish WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (26-0, 22KOs), who moves up by two weight divisions to face Paulie on June 22nd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Malignaggi has displayed better power at 147-pounds and stopped two of his five opponents at the weight. Prior to moving to welterweight in 2010, Malignaggi had not scored a TKO win since 2002. He expects Broner to suffer the same kind of punishment at 147.

"If you look at my opponents they all get their ass beat don't they?  I mean do they all not wind up looking like their face went through a window at the end of the fight, especially recently?  I don't see why Adrien Broner's face is going to look different at the end of the fight.  He will wind up looking like they put his face in a blender when I'm done with him. Whatever it is.  It depends on him.  It depends how bad he wants to win.  I'm not going to tell you that I'm going to sit here and knock him out in one punch, but he's going to feel a lot of punishment on next Saturday night.  We'll see how bad he really wants it.  He talks like he wants it so bad.  We'll you're going to go through a lot of pain in a situation where he's not even going to win so in the end he may just tell himself it's not worth it and he'll just quit," Malignaggi said.

Malignaggi has never been impressed with Broner's record. He doesn't see a single win that impresses him, which is why the Brooklyn fighter is so confident coming into the match.

"He's fought such bums who ... [in the] boxing ring let alone boxing for world titles that you can't even really make a comparison to what is going to beat him or not because it really could be anything. There's not really one thing that you can say will or won't work [on Broner]. The guys he's been fighting have nothing at all so just the fact that you bring something, anything to the table already gives you more of a chance than anybody else he's fought," Malignaggi said.

Malignaggi shouldn't shoot off his mouth if he can't back up what he says. Broner will put a beating on him.

Paulie has underrated skills imo. But he has no power... Has he improved much since Hatton? I hear he can be inconsistent.... He needs to stop with all this talk of ''punishing'' Broner... dude hasn't KO'd anyone in how long?

For a while I thought it's Broner saying Malignaggi's "face will look like it went in a blender." If only Paulie's punch had muscle this won't be hard to believe.

Malignaggi will give Broner problems in there fight no question. Paulie is the slicker fighter especially when he wants to be. The biggest negative for Paulie will be when and if Broner finds out that he cannot be hurt by…

[QUOTE=billeau2;13476161]Some insights on this thread....to which I would add, Paulie already holds a major advantage over Bronner. People have underestimated him and the Bronner camp are not getting the fight they think they signed up for. Here is why. Paulie…
