“Your favorite guy Manny Pacquiao JUMPED over 140 ” My favorite guy? When have I ever claimed or even hinted that Pacquiao is my favorite guy. In my eyes, Pacquiao fell from grace a long time ago when he wouldn’t make the fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Try to keep up, SRed, it ain’t that hard.

I truly hope so because it was annoying reading him constantly saying doped up yank. He couldn’t even talk boxing, that is all he could say. Really he stopped posting when his great Tyson Fury was knocked down by Cunningham.

That is true though, all the top dogs at 140 and at 135 where already scheduled to fight with in the next couple months

Broner had to move to another division to get a fight… There is nobody at 135 who’s highly regarded now that Valero is gone… Broner’s people surveyed the landscape and said, “WOW.. Paulie Malignaggi won a world tltle at 147. He can’t punch his way out of a wet paper bag. Let’s go can his ass and challenge Floyd.”

“I love it.” Adrien grinned from ear to ear.. “Let’s do it… Get on that phone before Paulie falls through a toilet seat.”

Demarco was NOT overrated NO ONE had him on a P4P list but he was considered the BEST at 135 till Broner showed he was the BEST at 135… Losing to Edwin Valero is no shame look at the guys that Canelo was beating? Cintron with 2 TKO losses to Margarito at 147, one where he cried, a draw with Martinez he deserved like a hole in the head…Gomez who Cotto was putting down with jabs at 147…. Get real man Demarco was the Champ, he earned it and Adrian did not eke out some technical points win he DISMANTLED Demarco surgically and knocked him out…. Virtuoso performance that put the World on notice and has you guys clamoring for him to fight all the way up till 154 because you indirectly think he is that damn good….BIG expectations are only put on truly TALENTED fighters, trying to knock Broner you exalt him Hidalgo!

Hidaglo, who CARES if 140 is a HOT division the truth is that Broner has NOT fought there… Your favorite guy Manny Pacquiao JUMPED over 140 and faced Oscar then dropped back down and fought Hatton at 140 pounds… Maybe Broner will do the same, again he is 22 so he has the luxury of time and he can do pretty much what he wants as he develops… I know how taxing praying for Floyd Mayweathers demise has been for you, I guess you are turning your attention to Broner in order to find some relief from FMJ’s winning ways? Where was all this massive scrutiny when Canelo Alvarez was facing Jose Miguel Cotto, Josesito Lopez, Alfonso Gomez and Kermit Cintron when he fights in the HOT 154 pound division? we know he fought Trout the other day (Kudos I like Canelo) but you are talking out of BOTH sides of your mouth… Broner is fighting 3-4 times per year and getting better if he wants to put a toe in at 147 so what??

“Unlike Broner, Marquez moved up toe 147 to fight the best, not the worst at 147. Totally different situation.”-SAME situation. Like I SAID the only difference is the SKILL level of his opponent….But when I MADE that point 3 YEARS ago everyone SAID that it had nothing to DO with Floyd’s SKILL level. They SAID that it had to DO with jumping 2 Divisions…But its GOOD to hear that YOU agree with ME. Its not the divisions being jumped its the opponent being faced…I knew I was CORRECT all along but its GOOD to get the confirmation even IF I had to wait 3 and a half YEARS to GET it.

Posted April 26, 2013 8:40 pm

Marquez moving up to 147 is not a remotely valid comparison with Broner… Marquez was a GRIZZLED veteran with what 50 pro fights and had 2 fights with Manny Pacquiao under his belt… He had faced Barrera, Diaz, John, and Casamayor he was in his 30′s Broners a kid AGAIN there is no comparsion…

Marquez wasn’t a young up and comer trying to build his record, while staying undefeated. Unlike Broner, Marquez moved up toe 147 to fight the best, not the worst at 147. Totally different situation.

In other words, Broner is trying to cherry pick a title at 147. Who could really blame him though. In his defense the 140 pounders are busy right now, but I doubt he’ll endsup fighting the winner of Mattheyssee/Peterson.

“Broner did NOT duck Mattheyssee they don’t even fight in the same division yet… ” Huh? So Malignaggi is? Your reasoning on this argument holds no water SRedmond. There’s a lot of hot talent at 140. Broner has completely skipped this division and set he sights on a belt at 147 instead, even though “they don’t even fight in the same division yet…”

Posted April 26, 2013 7:54 pm

“Like it or not Demarco was considered the best man at 135″ Yes he was but that was wrong. I knew it long ago and I have said so many times on the ESB threads “Demarco is overrated.” Valero proved it once. Broner proved it again. So will other boxers as Demarco faces better opponents.

Posted April 26, 2013 7:51 pm

“Of course they did…” Sorry Tark, I meant to say that none of welterweights who were champions at the time Paulie fought Senchenko made any attempt to do what Paulie did. I know all about Carlos Palomino as he is one of my all-time favorite boxers.

Lets see MMattheyssee has a fight against Peterson, Judah is fighting Gacia, Tomorrow, and Khan fighiing tomorrow too. Alvarado and Rios had a tough fight just a few weeks ago. Broner/Mallenaggi is a good publicity move on showtime for Broner. But there a a lot of guys at 140 who would beat Paulie right now.

Broner may be an elite fighter in the near future, but I doubt he’ll have longevity. Something seems off about him, to me. Maybe it’s cause he’s still a kid, but he doesn’t seem very bright. Time will tell.

Broner did NOT duck Mattheyssee they don’t even fight in the same division yet… You might as well say “he ducked Khan and Garcia” while your at it… This kid is gonna get Floyd Mayweather syndrome from the detractors, they HATE him but they cannot control their lust to see him fight EVERYONE imaginable, Broners in the early stages of his career he can do what he damn well pleases…Mattheysee is a hard hitter at 140, but he can build his OWN damn name, besides Broner would be better served going after Garcia if he drops back down to 140, he is the Ring Champion at the weight and has a BIGGER name than Mattheyssee… Kids 22 and guys want him to have cleaned out 5 divisions by now… Face it you have another BRASH, unrepentant talent on your hands… Lets see how good he gets and hopefully how many he pisses off in the process…Last thing boxing needs are some more BLAND fighters that cant raise the profile of the sport….

He WANTED to DO it…..Again I THANK you for agreeing with ME on MY point….Boxing is a Sport not a Division SO Floyd bypassed LESSER Fighters at WW to face JMM who was BETTER than anyone Floyd could have faced at Welter just as Broner is BETTER than anyone that Paulie can face at Welter.

Canelo vs Broner is laughable and its ANOTHER attempt to get a YOUNG fighter beat up, I will see that as a good matchup after I see Canelo fight a guy at 175…. Broners never fought about 135 hes nobodies 154 pound fighter despite guys saying “hes huge” meanwhile he looks like a midget next to Floyd Mayweather who is himself a small man…If a guy looks big to you at 5″7 then you are a frightfully small man your damn self….. At 5″11 187 I call men that size SMALL….

Posted April 26, 2013 4:37 pm 


SREDMOND

Broner does NOT have to fight someone better than Malignaggi at 147 to test the waters thats nonsense…His potential does not mean he has to rush his career in terms of moving forward… Who did Pacquiao first test himself against at 135? David Diaz not exactly a world beater and Manny was a FAR more seasoned multi-weight World Champion by then… Canelo Alvarez has MORE bouts than Broner and he just did have his first well respected opponent in his native division… Like it or not Demarco was considered the best man at 135 and Broner laid waste to him, he would be a fool to sabotage his career because guys are thirsty to see him lose over overextend himself… Moving up divisions is not as easy as some of these guys make it look or we would have hundreds of 4 weight Champions…

Posted April 26, 2013 4:34 pm

Not a chance… Broner’s got this one easy. Super easy. Broner’s real target is a Mayweather fight. And you know, he’s not trying to fight like Mayweather, or even defend like him. Any resemblance is happenstance, because he’s doing his natural style. Broner’s a young kid and Mayweather is not a young kid. Broner might even step in front of Canelo in the Mayweather sweepstake, to the consternation of many. Broner is being matched extremely well. This move was particularly brilliant.

this is a fight paulie can win and hope he does. i think the biggest 5 mistakes broner is making is that 1. he thinks Paulie is scared of him 2. paulie can’t punch 3. he can put on 12 pounds for a fight and it wont affect anything 4.. he is the best thing since sliced bread 5. he is floyd mayweather jr. Paulie is a seasoned pro and if broner isn’t 100% focused he will lose his 0.

Broner is the next Superstar in boxing. He needs to fight better opposition than Paulie. Paulie is champion, but a stepping stone for Broner to bigger fights. Broner is taking easy fights to conquer the marquet value of a champion. Their fighter to fast to championship fights. They are not defending their titles just winning titles, then jumping to the next division. Sugar Ray, DLH, Mayweather are leaving bad foot steps in boxing. Winning to many titles in 6 divisions and not fighting the best, it is ridiculous. Alexis Arguello won 3 weight classes and won titles and defended the titles and reliquished the titles without ever losing won in the ring. That is an accomplishment, but winning titles without defending them. In reality boxing is getting like wrestling. Broner jumping two weight classes, I hope they do eventually fight each other Mayweather, Guerrero, Canelo, Broner. Make Superfights. Also make PPV fights worth it, have a few good names defending their championship in the undercard. Bob Arum, Don King at least had that difference in 80′s.

Malignaggi’s and intelligent test coming up from 135 for Broner… Just to satisfy guys drooling for him to lose he should not being going after a big hitter at 147, conventional logic suggests he will likely drop down to 140 and begin fighting… AGAIN BIG expectations are only hoisted on guys that people think have talent… Mayweather and all the rest dealt with this as they came up…. Basically unless its Godzilla then guys don’t want to give respect…

Broner destroyed Gavin Rees case closed the only reason Broners getting discussed as it pertains to defense is because of the FMJ comparisions… Broner has tremendous talent but hes not even 24 years old he has forever to improve or get taken out by someone… Hes fun because he is out to do damage every night… Gavin Rees got blow completely out…..

Watt knocked Stracey out in the ABA semifinal on the way to wining it. There was no love lost between the pair either. Watt had a few fall outs with Straceys father also, obviously over Watt knocking his boy cold…

You know for someone that is so hyped like Broner, that midget he fought last time was hitting him with a lot of flush shots. As long as he plays it safe and fights the soft hitting guys he’ll be a media star. Sooner or later he’ll have to fight someone with talent that can punch, then we’ll see what he’s made of for real. I’m not sold on the talent of Broner.

@Hidalgo…. “Paulie basically came out of nowhere as a welterweight, went overseas to foreign soil and took a belt from a reigning welterweight champion that he was overwhelmingly expected to lose to. NO other welterweight champion or top contender even made an attempt to do that.”

Of course they did… American Carlos Palimino had only 19 wins in 23 fights when he went over to England and knocked out WW Champ John Stracy. I remember it very well because Palimino was a big underdog who had half as many fights as Stracy. Stracy was a huge favorite despite being an easy target with his head in the air — and no defensive skills whatever — just like the unknown guy Malignaggi beat. The difference is, Palimino stretched his man out cold.

Paulie has fought some good name fighters … and mostly got his ass kicked by them.. I give Paulie great credit for beating Juan Diaz, his best win. But the Baby Bull is soft, and his defense is full of holes — as compared to an elite boxer like Broner, who can box, punch, and defend.

Easy money??? That’s very disrespectful. After the fight Paulie will say, “I’m not sure what happened. I never got my rhythm. I didn’t feel right…didn’t feel loose in there. I’ll have to study the fight to see what happened. He was walking me down and NOBODY walks me down—so I’ll have to sort it out and go back to the drawing board. Don’t get me wrong. He’s a good fighter. He has a difficult style, but I wasn’t right. I’ll be back and win my title back. This was a poor performance on my part. I apologize to my fans. I’ll be back.”

In other words Paulie’s mouth will keep going in defeat. If he gives Adrien credit for being a great fighter after calling him “easy” I’ll be amazed.

So what Valero kicked Demarcos butt is the criteria for respect is a boxer has to be undefeated? Demarco rebounded from the loss and went on to capture the belt… Broner smashed him in his FIRST bout at the weight as a young fighter which was VERY impressive… As for Paulie Malignaggi the only reason that guys are all over this kid for taking a a shot at a guy who is not the best at 147 is because Broner is so damn talented, no one has EVER seen Broner at 140 let alone 147… Nothing wrong with testing the waters and seeing how he fares… Malignaggi despite not being a big hitter has been in the ring with some very talented fighters PEAK Cotto, Hatton, Khan and Diaz the guy is gonna give us some insight into how Broner looks at 147…. Relax the kids 22…..

Here’s the thing about Paulie that so many conveniently overlook. Paulie basically came out of nowhere as a welterweight, went overseas to foreign soil and took a belt from a reigning welterweight champion that he was overwhelmingly expected to lose to. NO other welterweight champion or top contender even made an attempt to do that. But even now, all some fans can do is bash Paulie. This was a very special thing that Paulie did. And he took Senchenko’s belt in impressive fashion: by TKO. So the guy is due some props. And mark my work, Paulie will be inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame. Wait and see.

Posted April 26, 2013 10:06 am

“regardless IF the guy has to jump 2 Divisions.” Broner did not have to make the fight with Paulie. He didn’t “have” to jump 2 divisions. He wanted to do it. He’s looking for what he thinks will be an easy belt so he’s going after Paulie. But Paulie isn’t Gavin Rees or Antonio DeMarco. Malilgnaggi is the best opponent Broner has faced since Broner fought Ponce de Leon in 2011. Yeah that includes Antonio DeMarco- because Valero kicked his butt a long time ago, and besides that Demarco never really was that great. So a win over Paulie will be a big feather in Broner’s cap. By Broner’s choice. Not because he “had” to.

Tomato Can, no he never said anything bad about the legendary and only 8 time division champion Manny Pacquiao. Arguably the greastest fighter of all time. I have mentioned my reasons before,but I’ll mention them again. Back in the amateurs, Malignaggi was a big mouth that fought my boy Vicente Escobedo. Escobedo beat his ass and shut him up. Vicente went on to the Olympics. Malignaggi was stuck up and rude back then, and I never forgot that. He still runs his mouth for never having done anything but take beating by every top guy he ever fought. And when he fights Broner, he will receive his final ass kicking. I have to turn off the TV volume every time he talks. Please Showtime, cut his contract soon.

This will be a slaughter… The easiest touch all year… Poor Paulie. He’s already been stopped by Khan and Hatton. This will be another high profile spectacle — displaying his ineptitude. Broner has to be grinning from ear to ear because this is the division Floyd operates in. I’m sure Floyd would rather fight Broner than Canelo. I can imagine Floyd’s comments after he beats Guerrero.

“Floyd… Everyone wants to know about a Canelo Alvarez fight.”

Floyd.., “I just spent months training. I want to kick back for a month or 2 and then sort out possible opponents because things could change… Canelo might be a possibility. Pacquiao… Broner… We’ll have to sse. If it doesn’t make dollars it doesn’t make sense.”

But Paulie won’t beat Broner. He had enough problems with Cano’s speed and power. Broner is even quicker and he has great power as well.

But he will take on the best whenever he can. So what HecDog if he’s been beaten at the elite level. He still continues to fight there. Paulie Malignaggi is a true champion.

Paulie is the man. He takes on all comers. No BS, win or lose.

E Denver, good points.. You’re probably right. Why else would Broner bypass the 140 division where just about every top fighter in that division would be favored to give Paulie a beating. Still, Broner is moving up in weight too fast. But it’s easy to see why he won’t be stopping by at 140.

Golden Boy is pushing Broner too fast through the weights. This is insane. Let the guy grow into a class, put him in with the best of the division, and if he cleans it out, or out grows it, then move up. But flying through the divisions like this is stupid. Then again, DLH will do anything to make sure it is one of his fighters that finally topples FM. I swear the man acts obsessed.

Finally Malignaggi is going to be put into retirement permanently. I could never stand this Big Mouth fool that never beat any top fighter ever. He looks like a clown, sounds like a clown, and is being sacrificed by his promoter because he has no chance. He’s going to look like a beaten up midget by the time the referee stops the fight. Broner is the new King in boxing that could do what Malignaggi never could, and that’s talk the talk and walk the walk. He destroys Malignaggi in area facet of boxing. Speed, power, defense, movement and everything else. Broner isn’t my favorite fighter. but he is the new King that has so much talent, and won’t be beaten by anyone for a long time. This Malignaggi fight will be without any doubt the easiest win of his career. Malignaggi was a punk when I met him and he’s still one. Finally he goes away for good.

This is not even a fair fight.

Paulie’s legs are starting to go & despite this the man does sit down on his punches. Paulie isn’t smaller but he is older, slower, less powerful, less active. Paulie keeps his lead hand down & doesn’t move his head. You can’t do that with a guy that is a lot faster than you. Broner lands too many clean shots & Paulie really has nothing to back up or slow down Broner. Paulie sees a payday & Haymon sees a vulnerable title holder. This looks like a win for Broner.

He might not win but Paulie will show that Broner is beatable,especially at WW.

Normally when PM faces a top fighter the opponent is bigger and stronger than him. Which causes him too break down as fight goes on because his lack of firepower. With this fight he may be as strong S Bromberg which could make for a different fight than most expect.

Pauli is my dude..I really like his style…but Broner is bigger than Mayweather..Pauli can actually hit..he’s scared to break his hand again if he Let his go..he can at the most stun ol boy

Feather-fisted Paulie doesn’t stand a snowballs chance in h3ll. He might as well just hand over his paper title right now so he doesn’t have to get KTFO and suffer such deep humiliation in front of the hometown meatballs in Brooklyn. Much better off going to Gym, Tan, Laundry and waxing his eyebrows and bikini line. Yo Paulie!

Never count Paulie out, he can box , he’s slick , lots of ring IQ. I would love to see Adrian fight Manny, I mean if the Floyd Manny thing won’t go lets do Adrian Manny. Just sayin.
