    Broner Beats Mightily Impressive Malignaggi, Split Decision

    Paul Malignaggi did a damn bit better than many folks thought he could, but sadly for him, he's not blessed with power. Adrien Broner's power edge spoke loudest after 12 rounds in the main event at Barclays Center, which was televised on Showtime, and promoted by Golden Boy. Broner won a split decision, by scores of 115-113 (Broner-Feldman), 115-113 (PM-Miller) and 117-111 (Broner-Schreck), but many if not most in the building left with massive respect for Malignaggi, who showed a mastery of the ring, a solid chin, superb defensive skills, and a fierce desire to compete.
    Indeed, this fight might be most remembered as a moral victory for Paulie more than anything else.

    Broner said after Paulie fought like he thought he would, that he ran after he felt Broner's power. (I disagree.) He said he does respect Paulie as a boxer. He then boasted that he took Paulie's belt and his girl. Next? He said he will let the fans pick his next foe.

    Paulie after said it was a close fight, and that Broner didn't work hard, tat he fought 30 seconds of each round. "The fight could have went either way. You have to take the belt from the champion," he said. Paulie ranted that the ending was BS, and that this is typical of boxing. "Someone should stand up and do something about it," he said. "It's BS," he repeated.

    He was asked by Jim Gray if the fight was fixed. No, he said, but the politically connected guy always wins.
    PM went 214-843, to 246-524 for Broner.

    Broner (age 23; 26-0 entering; from Cincinnati, Ohio) was 146.8 while the WBA welter champ Malignaggi (grew up in Brooklyn, lives in LA; 32-4 entering; age 32) was 146.4 on Friday.

    The fight was set up as a steppingstone for Broner, to provide another notch on his belt, his top scalp to date. Malignaggi came in as a rugged vet, and the Broner crew had to hope their guy would send a message by stopping Malignaggi conclusively. His corner had pulled the plug on him during round 11 against Ricky Hatton in 2008, and the ref stopped his fight with Amir Kahn in 2010 in round 11 as well. If Broner were able to stop Paulie early, he'd be due some respect. For Malignaggi, it was business as usual, with naysayers declaring he had no chance against a younger, stronger foe.
    In the first, both men landed a few clean shots with Broner having a power edge. Paulie looked to work the jab and touch Broner to the body and arms. AB's jab landed hard a few times.

    In the second, Paulie had luck with left hands to the body. "You can't hit me," he said to Paulie. Broner drew a warning from the ref for trying to leg Paulie's groin in a clinch.

    In the third, straight rights hit Paulie clean but he hung tough, touched Broner to the chest a lot.
    In the fourth, Paulie took it with volume. He stayed busy, nothing crazy powerful but enough to keep Broner on the defensive.
    In the fifth, Broner buzzed Paulie at the end of the round, after Paulie worked hard to try and take the round.
    In the sixth, Broner landed several hard, clean shots. Was Paulie getting tired? Broner's left hooks looked heavy. In the seventh, it was a pretty tight round. Broner generates great power from in tight, and his power edge won him the round.
    In the eighth, Broner looked fresh and his right hand was a nasty weapon, landing hard and clean.
    In the ninth, Paulie ate a few solid rights and the crowd helped Broner with roars.
    In the tenth, Paulie's superb defense impressed. A left hook during a trade knocked his head back and maybe gave Broner the round. In these later rounds, PM wasn't moving as much, and was in tight, fighting smart in close.
    In the 11th, Paulie stayed active. He worked to the chest and made Broner work for openings.
    In the 12, Paulie was right there; he ate a clean right, but he was right there, boxing smart, to the end. We went to the cards.

    Wow! It is time to get rid of those punch counters. Paulie clearly landed the most punches. But apparently the counters are also connected to the Shadow's fighters. They don't count body punches.

    It is time to holla at the flawless technology of counting punches. Those in da know know we already have it straight outta Asia, babeee! It is a matter of time before pugilism catch up with technology to halt the questionable scoring and judging. The fight could've went either way.

    Broner is aight! But he is not even close to Money May light. Holla!

    Broner will be beaten by a hard puncher. I think he got exposed - he' ll have his Prince Naseem moment soon enough

    Pm should quit the shadows network showtime and comment for hbo with kellerman. pm was impressive. Do Pm a favor and follow up why no points were taken from Broner . Interview the ref on here . Interview someone from the commission about the ring. Interview schreck on his scorecard . Interview banks on why every time he had Mitchell hurt why would he let up and go some rounds throwing nothing. Ask him if it has anything to do with Mitchell fighting klitco for a fat payday because trainer can't fight his fighter . Step aside money? Ask some had questions boxing fans want to know.

    Paulie's comments tonight ....true or not.....that ain't my point here....but they were as controversial as Juanma's accusations against the alleged corrupt referee. So, it'll be interesting to see what sort of backlash and punishment is handed down.

    True southpaul but you have to let some shot slide in this sport

    As paulie is a very emotional guy.

    Worse things have been said.

    I enjoy paulies commentary I hope he didn't shoot himself in the foot so to say.



    Hopkins has a bright future as well I could listen to him all day.

    SP, once again the game is like life -- it ain't fair! Paulie will get no backlash for speaking his mind and the truth. The shadow Al Haymon is laughing his two-ton arse off. He has thick, hiding skin. JuanMa was dealing with a thin-skin referee and the commonwealth of Puerta Rico.

    Besides , Paulie knew he wasn't going to get a win no matter what. JuanMa was just outgunned and knocked da double fudge out. Holla!

    Bravo to Pailue M. His defense, combination punching and lateral movement won the day. Yeah he lost his title but he took the shine off of Broner's reputation. I watched with music playing the whole time and had Paulie up at the end, and I picked Broner to stop him. This was a lot like Trout-Canelo, one guy landing 2 or 3 hard shots a round, the other landing 20 or 30 light shots.

    Paulie began to shed light to solution of the so called "problem". Paulie outworked him but like everyone else reiterated he needed something shy of a knockout to win. I think Avila or one of the other scribes said, Broner doesn't have good defense to offense flow. He did counter Paulie with right hands over the jab but for the most part he waited for Paulie to finish punching then he let off. And a lot of those punches Paulie slipped, and Radam I agree if there is this advanced punch counting technology we should use it. AB looked a little chubby from all that partying, a welterweight with some power, skill, and movement will beat him. Broner didn't have someone stand in front of him all night to beat which made him look mediocore, the fight could have gone either way. His lack of respect after the fight makes want to see him get knocked out more. Floyd even displays humility and respect for his opponents after the fight, this kid is a jackass

    Maybe Banks was stepping aside to get piece of the check. The fight in the stands on the other side of the arena from where I was sitting was more entertaining.
