Former two-division world champion Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi is shocked with some of the critical comments that are flying from fans on the Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) series.

Manager/adviser Al Haymon, through his company Haymon Boxing, started the PBC series in March on NBC/NBC Sports. Since then, PBC has locked up television deals with Spike TV, Bounce TV, ESPN/ABC, Fox Sports 1 and CBS/Showtime.

This coming Saturday night, PBC will make it's debut on ESPN with Keith Thurman defending the WBA 'regular' welterweight title against the former beltholder Luis Collazo.

Malignaggi will headline next PBC card on ESPN, when he faces undefeated Danny Garcia on August 1st. 

He feels fans should appreciate the abundance of boxing on television with PBC staging multiple shows a month across various networks.

"I think it's positive. There is nothing to complain about. Fans are weird. Boxing fans are weird. Would you rather have had ESPN on a nothing budget where you get half-assed fights or would you rather have PBC fights where there is a bigger budget and you put big names against each other. You don't complain about Thurman-Collazo or me against Garcia. Could ESPN have afforded those kinds of fights before? What are you complaining about?," Malignaggi said.

"Would you rather have Friday Night Fights with guys you never heard of? The stupidity of boxing fans really boggles my mind and throws me totally off. Would you rather have no boxing on TV and you watch something else? What are you complaining about? Boxing on Spike or boxing on CBS. It's either that or no boxing."
