Adrien Broner on his Friday morning confrontation with Paulie Malignaggi, who fights on June 22: “He was scared. You all seen that. He thought he had seen a ghost, and I ain’t talking about Robert Guerrero.”
Adrien Broner’s next scheduled opponent, Paul Malignaggi, says the 23-year-old lightweight titleholder’s recent arrest and subsequent actions and statements are indicative of the undefeated boxer’s immaturity.
Paul Malignaggi spoke to Bill Emes about an Adrien Broner showdown, which appears nearly made. “He’s won fights on talent alone, because he’s so gifted,” Malignaggi said. “I want to see what happens when someone makes him think. He’s not going to win this fight on talent.”
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer said the Paul Malignaggi-Adrien Broner showdown will likely happen on HBO while discussing upcoming fights with the media after Hopkins-Cloud. Schaefer also talked about potential heavyweight fight between Deontay Wilder and Tony Thompson.
