The former two-time two weight division world champion Paulie 'The Magic Man' Malignaggi, who is now a stellar Showtime sports commentator. He took time out of his schedule to speak to one of his lifetime supporters, and tell us his thoughts on Manny Pacquiao and the possibility of a Floyd Mayweather bout being made next summer and the thoughts on if he decides to go towards Danny Garcia, based on what he saw Saturday night.
PM: "Yea Manny's gotta get back on the VITAMINS, the guy he is now is who he always was, a limited guy who won't beat most or any top tens.."
KD: Do you think Danny Garcia would Knock him out, like I do?
Victor Ortiz has been in there with some of the best. He's face Floyd Mayweather, Marcos Maidana, had a draw with Lamont Peterson. You just never know what your going to get from Victor but excitement. However, something was took from him when he faced Josesito Lopez in what was suppose to be an easy fight. In the fight he had his jaw broken. He was in pain and he could not continue. He took time to shoot movies and commercials and then got back in the ring.
The problem? He was supposed to face another softy in Luis Collazo. What happened next was unexpected. He got Knocked out in the second round. Now we stand her wondering if he has anything left. How much mental damage is done to a fighter who was at top at one time. Now to build his confidence up, they are putting him in there with Manuel Perez who has a record of 22-10, with 4 KO's and…Continue
At one time is was Floyd Mayweather, then Andre Ward, and then Manny Pacquiao in the ranks. Well, we know why Andre Ward has fallen to number 4 and it's because of his inactivity. However, since his drop in ratings and Manny scooping up wins with Brandon Rios, Timothy Bradley, and Chris Algieri you would think he would move into the number 2 position again. Not so fast.
Wladimir has done something most people have not paid attention too. He has remained undefeated in 10 years time. He has defended his titles for a long time. He is the current IBF, WBA, WBO, and Ring Magazine Champion. The only belt he does not have is the WBC. Bermane Stivern is holding on to that baby, until he faces Deontay Wilder. So rightfully so Wladimir deserves that number 2 ranking. It's not his fault…Continue
