Paulie Malignaggi vs. Jose Miguel Cotto & Adrien Broner vs. Daniel Ponce de Leon to Air June 9 on Golden Boy Classics on FOX Deportes
LOS ANGELES, June 5 – Before WBA Welterweight World Champion Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi and Two Division World Champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner kick off the summer boxing season with an explosive showdown at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on June 22, Golden Boy Classics will preview the match-up on June 9 with a special Sunday edition of the hit series featuring two of these stars’ finest bouts which will air on FOX Deportes at 5:00 p.m. ET/2:00 p.m. PT.
In the main event, it’s a trip back to April 9, 2011 when former Junior Welterweight World Champion Malignaggi made his first major statement at 147 pounds against Jose Miguel Cotto. In the opener, we revisit March 5, 2011 when Broner stepped into the ring against his toughest foe to that point in his career, Mexico’s former World Champion Daniel Ponce de Leon.
A popular New Yorker on the comeback trail after a tough loss to Amir Khan in 2010, Malignaggi moved up to the welterweight division after the bout and following a win over Michael Lozada in December 2010, he dazzled against Puerto Rico’s Jose Miguel Cotto, pounding out a 10 round decision victory that announced his arrival among the 147-pound elite.
After tearing through his first 19 opponents, Cincinnati’s Broner got the fight of his life against the always-tough former World Champion Daniel Ponce de Leon who pushed the rising star to the limit until Broner emerged with a 10-round decision win. Two fights later, “The Problem” was a World Champion.
