Malignaggi Plans To Give Broner A Sustained Beating

Paulie Malignaggi believes fellow American Adrien Broner has made a huge mistake by moving up two weight divisions to challenge him for his WBA light welterweight crown at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, USA on Saturday night.


Much has been made of the unbeaten 23 year-old Broner moving up in weight and carrying his power from 130lbs up to 140lbs. Broner of course insists his punch power will not be affected in any way but Malignaggi thinks otherwise.


“He’s a little guy and he’s going to see how overrated his power was,” said Malignaggi. “I think they were better off letting him fight a light guy, a lightweight or someone below that before him fighting live welterweight. He’s fighting this bigger guy all in one jump so I don’t think that was the most intelligent move on his team part. It doesn’t really matter to me.


Malignaggi is an accomplished boxer but having only stopped seven opponents from 32 wins he is not classed as a puncher but Malignaggi took time to remind everyone that while he’s not stopping so many opponents he is giving out a sustained beating.



“If you look at my opponents they all get their ass beat don’t they?,” reasoned Malignaggi “I mean do they all not wind up looking like their face went through a window at the end of the fight, especially recently? 


“I don’t see why Adrien Broner’s face is going to look different at the end of the fight.  He will wind up looking like they put his face in a blender when I’m done with him. Whatever it is.  It depends on him.  It depends how bad he wants to win. 


“I’m not going to tell you that I’m going to sit here and knock him out in one punch, but he’s going to feel a lot of punishment next Saturday night.  We’ll see how bad he really wants it.  He talks like he wants it so bad.  We’ll you’re going to go through a lot of pain in a situation where he’s not even going to win so in the end he may just tell himself it’s not worth it and he’ll just quit.
