(CBS) Paulie Malignaggi is currently the WBA Welterweight Champion of the World. Paulie is fighting Adrien Broner June 22nd at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. He is also a boxing analyst for Showtime and will be calling the fight between Lamont Peterson and Lucas Matthysse. The fight is this Saturday in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and will be broadcasted live on Showtime.
Listen to Paulie as he previews the fight between Lamont Peterson and Lucas Matthysse. He shares his thoughts on Floyd Mayweather’s May 4th bout against Robert Guerrero. He thinks Floyd is the greatest fighter he’s ever seen and doesn’t believe Canelo Alvarez is ready to fight him.
Malignaggi told me that after he beats Adrien Broner he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather. There has been a lot of talking back and forth between Malignaggi and Broner. I asked him what’s going to happen when he fights Broner on June 22nd. He said “I’m gonna lump him up so bad that his own mother’s not going to recognize him”.
