Paulie Malignaggi: Girls Have Hit Me Harder Than Broner!

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Adrien Broner became a champion in his third different weight class, beating Paulie Malignaggi by a split decision to take the World Boxing Association welterweight title. Two judges gave the fight to Broner by scores of 117-111 and 115-113, while the third saw Malignaggi a 115-113 winner. Broner, also the reigning World Boxing Council lightweight champion, improved to 27-0 after stepping up two weight divisions to fight Malignaggi in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York.

Malignaggi, nine years older than his opponent at age 32, fell to 32-5 and complained about the most lopsided judge's decision against him and he says Broner is not a hard puncher at 147 - and he should probably move back down in weight.

"He doesn't hit hard at all, I've been hit by girls who hit harder than him. But he's a sharp little fighter. Things didn't go my way, I don't know what more to comment on it. I thought I did outwork him. He's not easy to hit clean, but he stands right in front of you so the body was easy to find. I think that really slowed him down. But he doesn't hit hard. If he hit hard then I wouldn't have stood in front of him so much, I would have been in trouble. Between him not throwing a lot of punches and not hitting hard, I stood in front of him more than even I anticipated. I'm 32-years-old, If I had the legs of when I was 25, everybody says how good Adrien Broner but he wouldn't be able to beat a 25-year-old Paulie Malignaggi," Malignaggi said.

"The most he hurt me, the most I felt was when he hit me on the break. I felt it a little bit but I recovered quick. If you could punch and catch me with a shot like that, you should knock me out. That shot hit me cold, I wasn't paying attention and he hit me with a left hook. He is probably better [advised to go] back down to 140 or 135. I don't even know about 140 because there are some strong guys there as well."

Evem though I hate Broner because he is an overhyped clown, He is better than Paulie. I don´t understand how a guy like Paulie with the looks of a tranny and the power of a teenage girl, can be world…

[QUOTE=streetwaves;13497516]On the contrary, if Paulie says you hit like a girl, that's a major insult.[/QUOTE] That's true...... [QUOTE=IIG;13497541]Paulie's quote about his legs is true. A younger Malignaggi would have nabbed a wide UD over Broner. Ultimately he was just a…

Okey, Broner doesn't belong to 147 because he lacks power to hurt the kind og Malignaggi.. but Malignaggi on the other hand doesn't belong to the 147 top dogs by failing to win the kind of Broner who stepped up…

From what I saw Broner didn't carry a great deal of pwr up w/ him. Paulie's faced hardly looked marked after eating 50% of AB's pwr shots...got the job done tho. Would like to see him against a formidable foe…
