War of Words: Khan vs. Malignaggi
Both Amir Khan and Paulie Malignaggi are confidently primed and clearly amped up for this junior welterweight showdown which does not lack in hostilities or bad blood. If these fierce words translate into action on Saturday night, Madison Square Garden is going to stage one heckuva show…
Paulie Malignaggi: “This is redemption right here, this is what I was waiting for. Nobody thought I’d be back in a world title fight. This is a big, big redemption for me – the opportunity to be here and a chance to beat a big champion that everybody says is a future great. Don’t forget, after the fight Saturday night after I’ve beaten him, what you were saying. I don’t want to hear Amir Khan was overrated, that Amir Khan had to go to Vancouver, I don’t want to hear anything…His manager said he wanted a big fight in America with Paulie Malignaggi. You know what they say – Be careful what you wish for.”
Amir Khan: “Paulie keeps talking too much…My job is to shut him up…This is his last chance he’s ever gonna get…It’s a business, it’s a shame I have to hurt people…Don’t hold it against me.”Watch Canelo Alvarez Make his return Saturday night against Rocky Feilding only on DAZN!
