Malignaggi: Broner's Power Overrated, I'm Kicking His Ass!

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (– Ten of the boxers who will fight on the eagerly awaited Paulie “The Magic Man” Malignaggi vs. Adrien “The Problem” Broner fight card this Saturday, June 22, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., worked out for the media Tuesday at a jam-packed Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn.

No less than eight of the fighters who worked out will fight on either SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING live on SHOWTIME® (9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT) or on SHOWTIME EXTREME (7:00 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast).

Hometown favorite Malignaggi (32-4, 7 KO’s), of Brooklyn, will defend his WBA World Welterweight Championship against undefeated current WBC Lightweight and Two-Division World Champion Broner (26-0, 22 KO’s), of Cincinnati, Ohio, in what should be a hotly contested main event of a tripleheader on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING.

Paulie Malignaggi

“We’re ready.  Come get it.  There’s not much more you can say to that.  The harder he tries, the more ass whoopin’ he’s going to get.  I want him to bring it.  I want him to think nothing’s going to happen.  He’s never been through what the deal is…deep water.  He’s never been 12 rounds.  He’s been 10 rounds once, and he struggled.  He better try real hard to get me out of there early and he better succeed, because he’s going to end up in deep water.  I’m ready for that kind of fight.

“I had a good camp.  My legs feel good.  You’ll see.  It’s part of the plan.  It’s one of the main things we’re doing.  We’ll show him just how we live and show him just how weak he is.  His power is overrated.  I could have knocked out 20 garbage men or laundromat workers too, but I chose to fight real opponents in my career.

“I could care less about the odds.  I could care less about anything.  They’re going to ring a bell on Saturday night and it’s going to be me and Adrien Broner.  He’s saying he’s coming to kick my ass.  I’m coming to kick his ass.  I think he’s looking at it too much like one-way traffic.  We’re coming to beat each other’s ass.  It’s not just him coming to beat my ass.  He’s forgetting one thing: I’m coming to beat his ass and, that’s the plan on Saturday night.

“A few years ago I might have been saying, ‘man, why does everybody think I’m going to lose this fight?  You know, I don’t understand it.  I thought I was a good fighter.  I feel like I’m a good fighter.’  Literally now, I could care less.  I fight for myself and that’s the one thing I told myself I would do after the Amir Khan loss because nobody was going to think positively about me after that loss, and you know what?  I’m going to stop trying to make everyone happy and just fight for myself.  I have yet to lose a fight since and there’s reason for that.”

Paulie has never been knocked out and you think Broner is going to get it done??? I think Nnoootttt.

Paulie can make it interesting if he starts fast. Gavin Rees stole a few opening rounds from Broner just being active. Broner's piss poor rendition of the shoulder roll gets him hit often. I still think Broner wins by tko.

[QUOTE=itsafight;13484717]Y'all keep saying Broner's gonna KO Paulie yet you forget that Paulie fought a close fight against a prime Cotto and has a good chin. Who has Broner beat? He's hype.... Paulie is gonna outbox him like Senchenko.[/QUOTE] I like…

Can we let the guy believe in himself? I mean what if, for some odd reason, Broner trips on Paulie's foot and catches a hard pillow to the face? What if the ref gives Broner the 8 count and waves…

Mags says he fought real competitors, but he BEAT NOBODY CREDIBLE????? His biggest claim to fame is he went the distance with Cotto.... AND LOST! There's a big hole in things when your biggest accomplishment of your Boxing Career is…
