Paulie Malignaggi better not accept a rematch with Hatton if Hatton looks good because he will probably get beat again and his career will look like garbage if he gets out boxed by Hatton again.
I could understand getting out slugged and roughed up by hatton the way he did Kostya Tszyu but to be out boxed, man that is just embarrassing, how could Paulie let a guy who isn't a point boxer beat him at his own game?
I think thats maybe a bit too harsh. True, Paulie got outboxed, but if anything it showed that there was a little more to Hatton than maybe he is given credit for. He was capable of outboxing a boxer and when you look at the success he had in his career and the level he fought at, you would have to think he had to be a bit more than just some crude slugger.
