no longer a "future legend".. it should be "current" by now! :banana: Devon is next?? Zab would be a better match-up.Comment by Phil Ivey on 05-01-2012
Paulie should have his hands registered as deadly weapons. I fear for the 147 division.Comment by ATG Fighter on 05-01-2012

Never seen Malignaggi more focused. He didn't goof around the entire fight and was placing his punches well and not wasting any energy. He looked better against Senchenko than his past 3 opponents. Great win for a well deserved champion.Comment by giacomino on 04-30-2012
