Gentlemen, I must apologize to Paulie Malignaggi. I was way to harsh and him and should not have degraded him so much. Yes his personality is annoying, but he’s a fighter, and fought some of the best and did the best that he could do. I must respect him and will no longer criticize him again. I hope he makes a good decision for himself about retiring, and I know he will continue to do a great job commentating. He reached a high level in boxing and he never ducked anyone. Maybe fame changes some people, and maybe it did him a little. His talking was very irritating to me, but he always gave it his all. I wish him the best, and will keep him and his family in my prayers.
I will continue to talk about him for you. Paulie said Pacquiao was just an average fighter. He must have been talking about himself based on the results of the Porter fight.Posted April 21, 2014 1:04 pm
“Porter did what Cotto, Hatton, and Khan couldn’t do to Paulie.”—-Sure he did but he did it way after Paulie’s prime. Not that Paulie was great but he certainly WAS better when he fought Cotto. Besides, as much as I think Porter is a very formidable opponent, he will have trouble with movers. Paulie as anyone may have noticed, is not athletic, he’s somewhat stationary and was there to be hit at will. Thurman moves quite a bit and is stronger than Paulie, and there are others who will not acquiesce to Porter by just staying in front of him. He’s good yes, but Paulie is no measuring stick for skill.Posted April 21, 2014 10:34 am
I think Floy’ds rectum must be quivering at the thought of having to face one of the current 147 title holders not named maidana. maidana, as anyone knows, is easy work..that’s why Im watching it the week after and avoid paying to see a sideshow. That said, highly doubt Floyd has the testosterone level to face Thurman, Porter or Pac. He can avoid Porter and Pac but….Thurman is his mandatory so Floyd is in a frigging pickle right about now. There are no more maidana’s to make him look extraordinary so, its a possibility Floyd may retire before completing his contract with Showtime which…..wouldn’t surprise me in the least.Posted April 21, 2014 10:23 am

….”The path of resistance to porter’s ascension to the highest level will only get tougher after each fight. Time to move to the likes of Marquez, Bradley, Pacquiao.”
Marquez was easily beaten by Bradley. He stands no chance vs Porter.
Bradley doesn’t have the punch to say with Porter. Or the raw strength at 147.
Pac doesn’t want to get iced again. Bradley almost rang his bell in the 4th. Bradley hits like a featherweight. Porter hits like a middleweight.
Mayweather-Porter makes perfect sense. Porter almost matches Floyd in speed, defense, and jabbing ability — but blows Floyd away with his inside strength and punching power inside. Floyd couldn’t even get Zab Judah out. I see a long brutal fight — with Porter closing hard in the late rounds.Posted April 20, 2014 11:41 pm

Yeah, I was thinking that same thing. I was like, no way Broner gonna make 140. But will have to wait and see.Posted April 20, 2014 12:20 pm
Yes Porter looked huge in there. The simple fact that he came down from a higher weight class helps him look that big and plus yeah he probably was in the 160s. They never said anything about the weigh in on the morning of the fight. They could only be 10lbs over so I am guessing everybody made the weight just fine.Posted April 20, 2014 12:08 pm
I have already agreed with you that they both messed the fight up. I just lay most the blame on Arum. And you may be right, if Floyd did get knocked out his PPV sells would plummet. But we either have to wait to see if that is true or we will just keep watching Floyd keep winning. I am also not arguing that the fight would of been the richest in history, I agree with you on that. But as far as the walking away, really they are both making millions so it really shouldn’t matter.Posted April 20, 2014 12:07 pm
You are 100% right about that. I am not arguing that fact at all. But it is also some issues with Arum doing something to his finances. Remember when Pac hired that outside accounting firm and they were about to reveal some major issues about his finances and Arum got Pac to fire them before it happened. Remember Arum is also a tax lawyer and he knows a lot of the tricks of the trade. Pac never had a good accounting firm behind him. He had KonzePosted April 20, 2014 11:49 am
If you think Rios was on the same level as Guerrero or Ortiz that is fine. I won’t argue that with you. Other than Floyd was getting out of jail when he fought Guerrero and Ortiz well he was coming off a decent win and war against Berto. But that also goes to show Pacs selling power which is a major reasoning why they were not giving Pac the money that he wanted or demanded which is one of the reasons the fight not getting made. Floyd wanted the bigger piece because he sells more. And after the Rios fight and now this fight which isn’t gonna do great sells, maybe around the same amount as last time which is good but not great just proves the fact again about the purse split.Posted April 20, 2014 11:47 am
Still doesn’t matter. He still wants it to be fair or have Pac take the test. That is not gonna change. Yeah you could for see that Pac was gonna get beat. Maybe no knocked out but definitely beat. Especially since he kept fighting Marquez who kept getting closer and closer each time. And in the 3rd fight Marquez was clearly taken by the judges. Besides the knock out I think that was the cleanest victory of any of the fights. And the simple fact that Floyd is making many millions really proves that he was no fool from walking away from that fight. Proves more foolish on their part for walking away.Posted April 20, 2014 11:44 am
Rich I have backed up plenty of what I said. And this is no mystery that Pac borrows money from Arum. This has been stated many times, as a matter of fact he borrowed a million to help with the disaster in the Philippians.Posted April 20, 2014 11:42 am

I give much more credit to Paulie for fighting fighters who were not ordinary and were not selected because they were “convenient,” or because the odds of those fighters winning were 15-1, than I do those who profess to be P4P but choose to fight those who don’t have any experience at 147 but only a strap. Bradley for a long time was in the 147lb division and yet….somebody named floyd never thought of fighting him. Now Floyd is in a huge pickle because if he does not fight any of the current 147 belt holders…history will not treat him kind at all. There’s no reason not to fight any of the current title holder if you are in fact the best fighter in the world. Thankfully, Thurman is Floyd’s mandatory, and he’s no easy fight for anyone. I really believe Floyd will do everything possilble to Avoid Pac, Porter, Thurman, Lara, GGG, Martinez. Floyds career end may take place before his contract with Showtime expires.

Pac and Arum may be friends but Arum is also a friend that is taking a lot of money from Pac. Now Pac isn’t helping himself by having this hug entourage that he supports. He has also ran into money issues with Arum. The problem is he borrows so much money from Arum that Pac really never sees his full checks. He is constantly having to pay Arum back. Yeah they may be friends but sometimes that doesn’t stop you from robbing your friend. And I believe Arum has taken a lot of money from Pac. Just like King did to Tyson.Posted April 20, 2014 10:52 am
Hildag0, that all depends. Floyd has gone out to make millions, many more millions than Pac. Who is the bigger fool, in this case it would be Arum and Pac. Instead of taking the fight, Arum got Pac knocked out, his money demand has gone way down, his PPVs have fallen tremendously. They have actually been falling since the Mosley fight. While Floyds PPVs have stayed in the million range, has gona on to make many millions, even getting more than 50 or 60 million to fight Canelo. So in this case, the bigger fool in Arum and Pac.Posted April 20, 2014 10:49 am

Of coarse not so why would you expect Bob to do that, just because Floyd says so?? Look I want to see the fight happen big time but im not gonna be unrealistic and expect anyone to do anything unrealistic to make it happen. Pacquiao has been with Bob forever so it is reasonable for him to have some loyalty towards him. How would you feel if many said look i will fight you floyd but not while your with al haymon. That would be nonsense. And for the record I believe Bob Arum, Schaefer and Haymon are all bad for the game man, Just like Don King was for Tyson.

Pac vs Floyd will never happen. Pac is loyal to Arum for some reason, Arum says the fight has to include HBO even though Pac has no contract with HBO and Showtime says the fight has to be on Showtime and HBO will not be involved nor should they be since Pac has no contract with HBO. You can always read between the lines to see that Arum is preventing this fight from happening.Posted April 20, 2014 9:39 am

All the winners last night were predictable, with the Porter-Malignaggi bout seeming to be the most interesting beforehand. Not seen the fights, but it seems Porter did a number on Paulie, who should be thinking of hanging them up. He’s had a good career. Welterweight does look a good division at the moment, with Floyd and Manny right at the top, then guys like Porter, Maidana, Bradley, Thurman, Broner etc in the mix too. Any number of decent match ups there…Posted April 20, 2014 9:27 am
Porter has great work ethics and has learnt a bunch from all that sparring with Pacquiao. In all honesty, Paulie has never been an A-level fighter. He’s been too weak his entire career and Porter capitalized on that flaw. Paulie’s been cocky and said that Pac is not a great fighter. He just got dominated by one of Manny’s sparring partners so I don’t give much for his views as a commentator neither. He had Broner and Maidana a draw after 8 rounds or something like that. Terrible judge.Posted April 20, 2014 9:22 am
Devon Alexander and Paulie Malignaggi made the same mistake, telling him that he have a sparring partner mentality for bragging abmout what he learned from sparring with Pacquiao, Shawn Porter made them pay.

I was rooting for Paulie. I grew to appreciate him after the Cotto fight. I hate to say it, but his days as a champ are over. He could stick around and still fight, but why? He’d always just be a test for guys to prove they are legit top level up and comers and risk getting hurt. He says he’s always been good with his money. Hopefully that’s true. Besides I think Showtime will continue to use him for commentating for a while yet. So he shouldn’t be hurting for money. Retire Paulie. You’ve had a good career. One you can be proud of. You went further than most!Posted April 20, 2014 5:24 am
Porter will not be stopped by anyone, I promise you. Sit back and enjoy.Posted April 20, 2014 4:57 am
Kenocny should have been knocked out. Nobody knew how to pronounce his name, much less ever saw him fight before. He has a forward head, with a high immobile guard. He was asking to be jabbed to death. He wouldn’t survive long against GGG. Quillin won every round but the fight was a sparring session … and monotonous as Hell.
Porter did what Cotto, Hatton, and Khan couldn’t do to Paulie. He hammered Malignaggi at will and slaughtered him at will. Shawn has speed, power, balance, a killer instinct, a nice stance, every punch in the book, defends well, takes punches well, and follows up appropriately when he connects. He didn’t take it easy just because he had an easy opponent, like Quillin and B-Hop did. He fought his ass off.
Paulie never stops thinking about Paulie… “Be a great fighter. Don’t make me look bad” is the first thing he told Porter. Porter is a great fighter already—and he’ll get much better.
Porter was the best winning boxer and puncher on the card by far. Malignaggi usually looks bad when he fights a good prime fighter… but this time he looked like a punching bag.Posted April 20, 2014 4:54 am
I saw all the fights.
Quillen was rubbish. The guy isn’t as powerful as his record or the commentators think. His defence is absolute poo, getting tagged constantly by Konecny. I’m not sure about his chin either, when Konecny buckled him slightly two times. Konecny has no power. Quillen cruised for most of the fight and won fairly but was far from impressive and I doubt he could beat any Top 10 Middle at the moment.
Porter was the showstopper tonight. After the first round he monstered Malignaggi for the rest of the bout. He outboxed, outpowered, outthought Malignaggi. Never seen a durable guy like Paulie get trounced so easily. Porter was awesome.
Hopkins deserves credit for this win as far as he controlled the fight to a pace that suited him. He landed accurately and had just enough power to dissuade Shumenov from rushing him. I was wrong on this prediction in which I thought Shumenov would out work Hopkins due to the age difference but Shumenov performed terribly and at a low work rate. Still another boring fight from Hopkins but his straight left and right that dropped Shumenov was explosive.
Side Note: Boxtra picked Malignaggi for a points win and failed again. Every week he gets his predictions wrong.Posted April 20, 2014 4:34 am

Gentlemen, I have been telling those of you that would listen that Malignaggi is a D, yes D level fighter. I told you that he loses to ALL the good fighters. I told you he would be stopped and would retire for good. He talks way too much for someone that has done absolutely nothing in boxing. He kept running his mouth about the legendary Manny Pacquiao. He kept telling everyone that he was some kind of legend. His boxing ability has been that of an amateur almost winning the City Golden Gloves tournament. He came up with excuses about how his fragile little hands prevented him from being a knockout artist. He was a loud mouth that could never back anything up. Malignaggi was nevr anything more than a good sparring partner for top guys to beat up. Tonight he received what he had coming to him. Fighters, please don’t run your mouths, act like your something special without having done one thing, talk down to others and criticize great fighters that have done more in one day than you have done in a life time (Manny Pac Man Pacqiao) or you will end up takign a beating as i had posted earlier, and sent to retirement like I had also posted. Malignaggi can go home now and retire. Good bye and good riddens. I will give him credit for being a professional fighter, which by the way anyone can do. And I will forgive him and take back every negative thing i have ever said about him once he apologizes to the greatest fighter of all time, Manny Pacquiao for his verbal attacks on the legend. Jealousy, and envy of a great man and fighter get you what Malignaggi got today, a butt kicking at the highest level. Malignaggi, don’t you ever criticize Manny Pacquiao. Don’t you ever have his name come out of your mouth unless it’s to praise him. Don’t ever be something you’re not capable of being, which is a great fighter. Never ever insult Manny Pacquiao because you will get what you got tonight. Have a good retirement Paulie Malignaggi.Posted April 20, 2014 3:56 am
