BoxingScene.com ran a recent article in which Kevin Cunningham said that his fighter Devon Alexander will be moving up to the welterweight division.  Alexander's manager and trainer went on to say that he felt Paulie Malignaggi would be the perfect opponent since the New Yorker criticized Alexander when he said that the St. Louis native lacked heart when he told the referee he couldn't continue after suffering a series of headbutts in his fight versus Tim Bradley in January.
 
Malignaggi fired back at Cunningham by telling BoxingScene that Alexander really lost his last three fights and was given hometown decisions in victories over Andriy Kotelnik and Lucas Matthysse and was lucky that he hasn't been relegated to club fighter status.
 
After reading Malignaggi's comments, Cunningham reached out to BoxingScene to issue a response.  The former policeman cleared up the issue of fighting in St. Louis by saying that a potential Alexander-Malignaggi bout could take place anywhere and having the fight in St. Louis wasn't necessary.

"The fight doesn't have to be in St. Louis.  We never said Devon has to fight in St. Louis.  The fight could be anywhere.  There are plenty of venues to choose from," said Cunningham.
 
Malignaggi told BoxingScene that he was interested in facing Alexander as well and that he would talk to his promoter (Golden Boy Promotions) when he returned from his vacation to explore the fight.  Cunningham said that he would like Alexander to return to the ring late this year so the timing would be perfect since Malignaggi said that he will be able to resume training in August which is when his right hand is expected to be healed.
 
The promotion for a Alexander-Malignaggi clash is sure to be entertaining as both Malignaggi and Cunningham are known as big talkers.  Cunningham finished up our conversation by issuing a message to Malignaggi - "Ryan, tell Paula Malignaggi that Devon doesn't lose to fighters who wear skirts in the ring.  Tell her that when she steps in the ring that I hope she has a better looking skirt that the one she wore for her last fight."
