Magic Man Malignaggi Goes Italian, Making Third Comeback Attempt in Milan
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
New York, NY (September 2, 2015)– Less than two months after losing to junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia in the ninth round of a bout scheduled for 12 at 147 pounds, former IBF and WBA World Welterweight champion Paulie ‘Magic Man’ Malignaggi will make a third comeback attempt. Malignaggi, 33-7 with seven knockouts, Brooklyn, New York, will fulfill a lifelong dream and desire of having the opportunity to fight in Italy.
The latest Malignaggi comeback attempt will take place in Teatro Principe in Milan on September 26, 2015. The information comes from Christian Cherchi of promoter OPI 2000. The name of the opponent is not yet determined, but the bout is posted and official.
Now age 34, Paulie Malignaggi has not won since December 2013 when he won a ten round decision over Zab Judah at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He was stopped by Shawn Porter in the fourth round at the DC Armory in Washington D.C. in April 2014 in a failed attempt to regain the International Boxing Federation World Welterweight title. Malignaggi lost his WBA World Welterweight title to Adrien Broner in June 2013 by 12 round split decision at Barclays. As he has lost three of his last four bouts to world class opposition, it is safe to presume Paulie will rapidly dismantle a grade ‘B’ opponent.
Paulie was born in Italy and spent the first six years of his life as a native Italian before coming to America. If Italy is Malignaggi’s swan song, it is an appropriate way for ‘The Magic Man’ to end his career with grace and style. This report wishes him good luck and G-d speed in his voyage home. Another world title opportunity likely is not in Paulie’s future, but a win and the opportunity to finish his career as a winner seems close to home.
