WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi, WBC lightweight king Adrien Broner, continued their war of words - this time on Twitter. The two fighters went back and forth during Danny Garcia-Zab Judah fight week - including two face to face confrontations at the official weigh-in last Friday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. After Broner started things off, asking fans to describe Malignaggi, the Brooklyn native fired back with a knee slapping photo.
Malignaggi tweeted a photo he claimed was Broner and stated - "No words for this, he isn't the can man. He's the purse man."
Malignaggi defends his title against Broner on June 22nd in a Showtime televised main event from Barclays Center. Broner, looking for his third divisional championship, is moving up by two weight divisions.
