Paulie Malignaggi: “I Would Never Fight Luis Collazo”

Rumors have popped up recently about former welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (33-5, 7 KOs) fighting the winner of tonight’s Victor Ortiz-Luis Collazo bout at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Malignaggi will be calling the fight as part of the Fox Sports 1 telecast, but don’t expect him to jump at the chance to fight Collazo should the veteran beat Ortiz.

“I’ve known Luis half my life, since I was 17, I really wouldn’t fight Luis,” said Malignaggi. “I mean it would have to be for astronomical money and that would never happen. So I wouldn’t fight a close personal friend of mine like that.” Continue reading

Malignaggi defeats Judah, wants Broner-Maidana winner

01 Judah vs Malignaggi IMG_4597(Photo credit: Tom Casino/Showtime) BROOKLYN, N.Y. (December 8, 2013) – Two weeks after his 33rd birthday, Paulie “The Magic Man” Malignaggi (33-5, 7 KO’s) picks up his 33rd win in a unanimous decision victory over Zab “Super” Judah (42-9, 29 KO’s) in front of his hometown crowd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The fight, promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, headlined a four-fight SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING event.

Despite being knocked down in the second round, Malignaggi was able to regain his stride en route to a strong 116-111, 117-110, 117-110 victory which earned him Brooklyn bragging rights and a potentially bright future in the stacked welterweight division.

Malignaggi decisions Judah; Porter defeats Alexander; Lara beats Trout

02 Judah vs Malignaggi IMG_4649(Photo credit: Tom Casino/Showtime) Zab Judah (42-9, 29 KO’s) scored a knockdown in the 2nd round, and then pretty much disappeared in the fight in losing by a 12 round unanimous to Paulie Malignaggi (33-5, 7 KO’s) at the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, New York. Following a knockdown of Malignaggi in the 2nd, Judah seemed to shift his offense into neutral for the remainder of the fight, as he focused entirely on defense.

It was almost as if Judah had suffered an injury because he just shut down completely and let Malignaggi run away with the fight. For a fan of boxing and entertaining fight due to Judah’s lack of aggression. The judges scored it 116-111, 117-110, and 117-110.

I hope Malignaggi fights someone with a little more enthusiasm next time because this was an awful performance from Judah. Continue reading
