STILL WHINNING OVER VITALI’S LOSS? Damn dude you’re a freak…

ST… In Vitali’s case he easily outboxed Lewis whenever it was a boxing match… VK was winning on ALL SCORECARDS!!!

Vitali’s cuts had very little swelling around them… They didn’t come from legitimate punches… Lewis raked Vitali’s face with the heel and palm of his right glove to spring 3 deep gashes wide open..

When has Lewis ever cut anyone else’s face like that???

When has Vitali ever been stopped on cuts other than that fight??? When has Vitali ever been badly cut before???

NEVER to all.

@Tark,

You get it my man. Ab clearly schooled the old wily vet in Pauly. Ab didnt need any judges in his pocket. He beat Paulie fair, square and decisively. Split decision my ass! Paulie maybe won 3 rounds if that. Like Lennox said after he beat up Vitaly: “Look at the state of his face!”

Shows you dont watch boxing. Adrian NEVER fought at 140 fool! Skipped 140 for a belt at 147

Very honest take. Broner was a bust. Covering up as if it was Pacquiao throwing bombs. Can Broner get a softer guy at 140 or above???? Too bad, I thought he had the goods!

TARK You had Chavez winning the Taylor fight before the controversial endind?? You did?? hmmm… Oh well, everyone is entitled to the own opinion. As for lumps & bumps, some fighter’s naturally swell more than others. Wilfredo Gomez was one of them. Seen him come out of aparring sessions looking like he just went ten rounds. Cotto too. Some fighters also swell up due to drastic dehydration before the fight. Doctors have confirmed it. I know light hitting so-called “feather fisted” fighters that their fragil hands swell up or fracture quite regularly. Some even avoid hitting the heavy bag regularly. Peace!

Fight judges, it’s all about the fight judges, if you get the right judges the patty cake guys can win, if they get the wrong judges they can out land the other guy 5 to 1 and lose. Paulie is a slick boxer but he can’t break an egg with his punches, he was a hand picked opponent for Broner.

In any case, Broner is the golden boy here, at least until he fights someone that can actually punch with power then we’ll see if he’s real or just hype. My guess would be hype and most people can’t wait to see him get blasted.

I was actually making a point that it was an hilarious aside to the business of these two boxing each other…

They’d smashed lumps out of each other and Paulie admitted he lost, but he was more concerned about the side-piece.

Classic!

Only in boxing!

Anything goes it seems these days….

This arguement should have stayed on Twitter!

Posted June 24, 2013 7:16 am

TJ, If you actually listened to what Paulie said “Don’t brag about taking my side piece” that’s a huge difference. What’s wrong with people telling lies? I don’t see the point in that.

Posted June 24, 2013 6:41 am 


TJ

WOW!!!!!

I will remember Malignaggi vs Broner for many things… but, the line by Paulie takes the cake and wins it all for me.

In the ring in the post-bout interviews, Broner said he won the fight and took Paulie’s woman, to which an angry Paulie interjected himself into the interview and shouting at Adrien:

“Don’t take my ‘side-piece!’ ” or words to that effect!

OMG. This has to be the funniest ending to a confronattion for years!

BTW, I thought a side-piece was a weapon and not a lady!

Great stuff! Brilliant!

I was @ the first Chavez/Taylor bout with excellent seats at the Las Vegas Hilton. Taylor ran circles around Chavez for most of the bout, but Julio did do some legit body work at times, although he trailed most of the fight. Taylor had his number for the most part and was not only ahead, but he had Chavez and his followers frustrated. Many fights in the venue, iirc about eight thousand fans in attendance.
Several minutes after the fight, Taylor’s head around his eye swelled to monster proportions, I really felt bad for the kid. Steele did the right thing, one more punch from the fired up and desperate Chavez could have killed him right there…

Truth, Malignaggi did well for himself. He did win a title, but don’t know who he ever beat for it. His first defense should have been a loss, and his second one, last night, was as usual another loss. He has failed vs Cotto, Hatton, Khan, Diaz and Broner. He also failed to making the Olympic team in 2008. Truth, I’m trying to give him credit for something, but it’s difficult. I’ll say this, he is a professional boxer that was about to retire until GBP and Oscar gave him a title shot when he was ranked somewhere in the bottom 20 and the contenders above him were robbed of a deserving title shot. I guess that’s what happens when you hook up with a crooked promoter. Malignaggi once again was only hired by Showtime out of desperation because Antonio Tarver quit. Malignaggi is a D level fighter, and his big mouth some how got him in. He made all these tough promises about what he would do to Broner, and he couldn’t break an egg. He speaks as if he is something special, which he is not. He did fight some top names and proved he didn’t belong. He whines and cries to anyone that will hear him at the post fight press conference. He should have said Adrien won the fight fair and square in my home town. Instead he tries to act tough and threatens one of Broner’s friends and allows one of his brainless gorrila friends to also threaten the guy. He gets desperate and accuses Al Haymon of rigging the scoring, and he stays away from giving Broner the credit he deserves. What would have happened if Malignaggi fought in Broner’s home town? As a matter of fact, I would love to see that happen. I’ll say this about Malignaggi, he fights, but never wins against anyone that’s good. I do hope he doesn’t get fired for accusing Al Haymon of rigging fights. Malignaggi should have more respect, ethics and morals to blame some guy he doesn’t even know. Malignaggi did well in making money and providing for himself, but he needs another career.

Sweet Pea Whitaker was a weak hitter… But at least he put more mustard on his punches than Malignaggi does.

Posted June 23, 2013 8:53 pm

IRON MIKE…. I had Chavez beating Taylor solidly before he knocked him out… He clearly landed the harder cleaner punches… Taylor had lousy balance and didn’t get any leverage on his punches.

On the other hand Whitaker was robbed blind in his Chavez fight.

Paulie looked great and one this fight Hecdog you just always hate on paulie maybe cause your boy escobedo got smoked by Broner and Paulie got jobbed in his hometown. Paulie Hit AB with a couple of 8 punch combinations its terrible to see him not get that nod. Paulie will go down in History as a great 2 time champion and a multimillionaire commentator.

Posted June 23, 2013 6:41 pm

After having just watched the post fight press conference with Malignaggi, I can say that Malignaggi is a whining, crying complaining wimp that can’t handle a defeat, which he should be used to by now. You lost, deal with and accept it. It’s over! Malignaggi failed over and over in all his attempts to beat anyone that was good. All he does in the conference is criticize Broner. Saying he can’t hit other guys are much better and every once in awhile almost gives him full credit. Paulie, you lost! Can’t stand whiners that can’t accept defeat especially when it’s so, so clear. Broner is the winner.

Vitaly wopped lennox ass and did it with 1 eye 66% of the time son. Outlanded him every round as well. Fight should’ve gone to the cards. Fight ending injury was caused by a foul. Even the well known california surgen who stitches up fighter explained how the cut happened. That’s really all ya need to know. Vitaly was absolutley dominant against the great lennox lewis from beginning to end. Vitaly was green nd had never been on that stage before but he shined and then lennox taked vitaly up big time. But what said everything was when vitaly retired the standing champ. Lennox’s career got cut short. He even tried to fight other guys anyone not named klitschko but sadly for lennox the wbc said no. You fight vitaly or your stripped. At that moment he retired and the last sound he heard as he left the ring was everyone booing him and cheering vitaly. Terrible end to the wonderful career of lennox lewis.

Texas Time

After watching the fight twice now i still cant really decide who won. Paulie controlled the fight with the job and all the work. Broner definately had the power shots, just not enough to sway the fight into his direction. I think Broner should have had a point for kicking PAulie in the junk. After one point taken i think it should have been a draw. Now for the after fight comments, Broner should be Fined heavily. I think the fine will go the other way though because Paulie called a judge corrupt without any substantial evidence. Im not a fan of either one, but Broner is so arrogant and out there makes me not want to watch. His next opponent should be either Trout or Maidana.

Posted June 23, 2013 4:25 pm

Just like in Broner’s case. His struggles against the Ponce De Leons and the Malignaggi’s only brings one conclusion and that is his not the next great in fact far from it. ATG blow away or have great fights with fighters with the same level of skills eg : Hitman vs Duran, Hagler vs Hitman, Pac vs Cotto, JMM vs Pac, Sandy Saddler vs Willie O, Carmen Basilio vs SRR, SRL vs Hitman, Cotto vs Floyd, JMM vs Floyd, Mosley vs ODH etc.

Bears & ? – your perfomance against your competition is the measuring tool of your greatness, fact. Who in Vitaly’s resume is a great, HOF, P4P champion or just a good champion. Resume is just full of bums, Cruisers, sparring partners n wannabes and it’s not like Vitaly blew them away ala Mike Tyson style so I find it hard to rate him high but yes his a good champion but his resume is not all that which ultimately works against him. Thats my take on the Klitschkos and everyone is entitled to his own.

“The writer doesn’t want to give credit to a 3-Division World Champion. NOBODY, not even Floyd Mayweather Jr was a 3-Division World Champion at 23.” – Nor should the writer. Floyd beat Hernandez for his 130 lb title, beat Corrales at the same weight, beat Castillo for his 2nd title and Gatti for his third at 140. No comparison. And Floyd was in the Olympics while Broner was busy sucking Hymen’s nutsack instead. Folks who think Broner is the next Floyd are dreaming.

BULLDOG18

The fight could have gone either way. As usual the Golden Boy/Al Haymon fighter received the nod. Sooner or later someone will uncover the alleged behind the scenes racketeering maneuvers between GBP, Haymon, etc…. Recently they have become increasingly brazen in their actions & it’s only a mater of time before authorities peel back the onion and discover what’s really there. Additionally, Showtime is at best an enabler and at worst a co conspirator. The fact that they would put Mitchell V. Banks as the co feature, when there are 15-20 heavyweights who are substantially better than either one of them is loathsome. The network has given golden boy 100% of their Championship Boxing dates and Haymon & GBP will continue to deliver undeserving B & C level fighters (Bika, Mitchell) in these marquee spots. I for one am looking forward to obtaining a front row seat to the imminent looming legal battles facing GBP. I will certainly find the action inside the court room more entertaining than the fraudulent matches being passed off as ” Championship Boxing.”

Motivator

I’ve been a Boxing fan for close to 60 years … my impression of the fight was of a feather-fisted Malignaggi almost landing shots at will, on a very poorly-postured Broner … (obviously, Broner skipped his ‘Basic Boxing’ classes, preferring to stand in front of a mirror practicing his ‘jive-ass thug’ moves) … Paulie weathered Broner’s hardest shots with apparent ease, and that did surprise me … IF Broner was in the ring with a Malignaggi that could break an egg, he’d have one whipped ass this morning …

Posted June 23, 2013 9:29 am 


Jonn E. JaGozza

Paulie has much more class than Broner that’s for sure however what I saw lst night wasn’t anything great for either camp. Paulie threw a lot of punches but it seemed he was throwing punches at his opponent instead of through his opponent. Broner seemed to be hesitant and afraid to open up on his man. He fought in spurts but nothing spectacular. Paulie was open all night for Broner’s right hand, Broner threw them but not often enough and also fewer combinations than I had thought he would have thrown. It was a very defensive fight telling me that both fighters respected the other but I don;t know why except for a few combinations
thrown by Broner. Paulie should retire, no power , and at this stage of his career he’ll never get it. Chalk one up for age with Broner , at 23 he’s still growing in the game. in 5 years he’s gonna be awesome. As far as the final comments made by Broner, again I attribute that to his age and his brashness, his swag. Again, he’ll have a great career but it won’t be an undefeated career and that’s for sure … PEACE

Love-the-Sport

Good but not great effort by Broner and Malignaggi.

Malignaggi looked good early but he also seemed gassed by round 7, his punches had no snap, he looked very weak.

Broner looked sharp in spots but he also seemed mentally weak and frustrated, throwing punches on the break, throwing weird punches in frustration, and his constant shaking of the head and talking reflected some overall weakness mentally.

I had the fight 116-112 for Broner.

Good — but not great — win for Broner.

Posted June 23, 2013 9:10 am 


Atruth

I don’t like Broner, and I thought the fight was close. But Incan see why bronner got it. Paulie was embarrassing, using piti patter punches on broners arms. Completely ineffective punching. Broner was the challenger and he didn’t bring it. He should have been more aggressive and effective and didn’t do enough in my book to take away a belt. I think it could have gone either way and am not shocked.

Paulie should know better than to throw around charges of corruption like he did in the interview. Juan Ma was suspended for a year for saying the same things in one of his fights.

Posted June 23, 2013 9:09 am

There’s definitely a reason Broner skipped over all of those threats at 140lbs. Almost anyone in the top5-6 at jr welter would’ve euthanized him last night.

Posted June 23, 2013 9:06 am 


Boesman

Browner looked average. He laboured to victory over a one handed fighter who cannot punch. At no point did Broner look like stopping Pauli. Promoters will keep him miles away from any real 147 contenders. Would like to see Thurman,Provodnikov,Maidana tear lumps out of him. Broner is a wanna be tough guy from the hood and likely ends up walking on his heels before he’s 30.

I am not a hater of Broner as a fighter as he has some skills its just that is was proven categorically last night that he is about on the same level as Paulie a good solid fighter but three weight champion and top 10 p4p no way!

I agree with you that it wasn’t a robbery but I’m not swallowing excuses like his age or jumping weight divisions. After thee Rees fight broner claimed he will transcend the sport.

At the end of the day Broner is only 23.

He needs to ove back down to Lightweight face Burns and develop and grow naturally (over the next 4/5) years upto Welterweight.

Needs to work on his footwork coz Gavin Rees exposed that over 3 rounds but didn’t have the size, strength, power or stamina to keep it up.

Probably 4-5 WW out there would beat Broner,classless ugly little man in and out of the ring.

I remember Collins in another Brit bashing article saying how Broner would easily beat Khan now surely he must admit the Amir would batter him even at welterweight you only have to see how they both performed against Paulie, wonder what he thinks now.

The most detestable c*nt in boxing. Boner should be called ‘mental problem’ as he actually thinks he if Floyd Mayweather. He ain’t and never will be. Bring on Matthysse and watch the little kid be handed his ass and then be forgotten about.

Said all along this kid was another african american hbo hype job, seem to come along every year or so, he needs to stay off the twinkies and get back down to 135 because he’d get abused at 140 – 147, hope this muppet is dead broke in a few years and a boat load of losses on his record, no heart, generic talent, doesn’t have a patch on Russell Jr and Errol spence.

For Real

I had Broner 115-113. I understand it being the other way too. I’m left wondering why Broner didn’t walk through Paulie and be more offensive (physically not verbally LOL). Paulie punches looked even weaker than usual tonight. Maybe Broner knows something about his own chin that we are yet to see. Broner was timid, I believe he has been shown up and many guys at 140 & 147 will be on the phone to their managers right now trying to get a fight with Broner ASAP.

Congrats to Bika, although not the No.1 guy at SMW, he deserves the rewards for a long career which he never took the easy road. He has an impressive resume even though he has had a few ‘L’.

To those who put me down pre this fight for stating that Broner was more Andre Berto than Floyd Mayweather! Well I think last night proved me right!

it was a draw ref didnt do his job and deduct 2 points for the elbow to the face and the kick to the groin or it would have been PM win but a draw shoud have been a the correct scorecard

Fighting solves all

I don’t care what color or race u are, reality is reality and paulie won that fight. He exposed that bum exactly like he said he was gonna do. Paulie is the man. I love watching his fights he’s got crazy heart and skills just wish he hit harder cause he would easily be a pound 4 pounder fighter

Fighting solves all

Paulie was robbed tonight and I agree with this article, if paulie didn’t have all those hand prob he woulda put broner on his ass. He deserves an immediate rematch. I truly hope there was a rematch clause in the contract cause that’s total bs that’s not how u should lose ur title to a dirty low class exposed bum like boner

murderman: What up player? You just hit the nail squarely on the head. I had it 115-113 for PM that I’ve NEVER liked that fool.

But that’s why I like you, dude… you’re always upfront and honest as they come. And don’t let all the stupid racial B.S. cloud your vision. Peace bro

Huge broner fan but paulie got robbed. Paulie shoulda got the split or it shoulda been a draw. Paulie was busier even though broner landed the harder shots. Paulie deserves a rematch. Broner should move done to 147. He appeared a lil slow n flat footed at 147.

Good article. Paulie out-landed Broner all night. Broner may have landed harder punches, but Paulie was throwing all night. I also agree with the writer that the guys mentioned in the article will beat Broner. Broner was lucky that Paulie wasn’t a puncher.
