Broner Maintains Unbeaten Record

Over in Brooklyn last night, at the Barclays Centre, Adrien Broner snatched the WBA welterweight title off of Paulie Malignaggi, with a split decision.

Bruner, stepping up two weights to take on the experienced Malignaggi, was the recipient of the decision from two judges who scored the contest 117-111 and 115-113 in his favour whilst a third judge gave it to Malignaggi by 115-113.

Naturally, with the scoring being as it was, both fighters had things to say about the contest with the beaten champion Malignaggi remarking in the immediate aftermath,

'That was disgraceful. This was a close fight.”

'The fight could have gone either way. I don't think he did enough to take the belt from the champion.”

I thought I worked him. He was sharp in his shots, but he wasn't busy. He didn't land a lot of the shots he was taking.'


Unfortunately, Malignaggi who now has a record of 32 wins and 5 defeats, falls into the category whereby champions believe they have to be carried out on a shield to lose their title.

For what it is worth, my opinion is that Bruner won the fight clearly and had every right to boast afterwards,

'It's a tremendous accomplishment,' he said. 'Who's doing it like me in the game? Nobody.'

'Paulie fought exactly how I thought he was going to fight,'

'Once he saw my power, he got on his bicycle and I had to cut him off the whole fight.”

'I didn't have to use my footwork. He ran. All I had to do was cut off the ring. He couldn't hit me. He was shadow boxing.'


Broner, still only twenty-three years of age, now has 22 victories and 0 defeats to his name and is fast emerging as a superstar in this hard sport of ours.

As for Malignaggi, can he come back from this? It’ll be a hard struggle is all I’m saying.
