Paulie Malignaggi who has been counted out his entire career, has achieved the most acclaim with any fighter in boxing history, with his ailments. Four surgery of his right hand, a completely reconstructed hand they had to use bones from his hip in a nine hour operation. Only to win two world championships in to different weight classes. Boxing counts for something, and after his gutsy performance against Adrien Broner where most people believed he won, Malignaggi never got the respect he deserved.
Most boxing fans and critics, attacked Broner for being lazy, and not focusing, in stopping Malignaggi, rather than looking at what Paulie did that made it difficult for Broner to perform the way he liked. It's hard to fight Malignaggi because he's like the Reggie Miller of boxing, he frustrates you then scores. Coming into this fight Zab Judah was confident that he would shine in both their hometowns, due to the fact Judah wasn't concerned with Paulie punching power. He should have been focused on his abilities, Paulie controlled the distance and used perfect timing with feints and speed to keep Judah frustrated, it was an easy night for the guy who keeps proving the boxing world wrong.
