Default Paulie Mallignaggi

I wasnt sure about Paulie but I watched the documentary Magic Man recently and I have come to respect him as it made me look at him in a whole new light.
That coupled with his performance in losing to Cotto has made me somewhat of a fan of his......
But whether he has enough to beat Hatton i'm not sure its a hard fight for either fighter Imo depending on which version of either fighter turns up tho i'm leaning 65/35 in Hattons favour

Anyways I was just wondering on what you guys thoughts on Paulie are.... as a fighter

i think anyone on the brit forum who slag of malliganggi has not seen the film. you gotta respect a guy who fights in his style after not have many amateur fights. also he is prepared to fight the best. he could have made a good life for himself fighting his crappy mandos but instead he gets in there with cotto (who nobody wanted anything off at that time) and hatton.

he may be ****y and have wierd hair, but thats what has made him a decent name. hes not got much power so he had to something to stand out.

Very average.

People had Cotto down as some kind of monster - but the fact was that he was horrendously weight drained. In his last two fights he has looked absolutely awful - losing IMO to Ngoudjo and drawing to N'Dou on my card.

Not to mention the ridiculous hairstyles and quotes - makes himself look a right prize plonker.

Hatton TKO 9

Its a bit of an exageration to say nobody wanted any part of Cotto, you're making it sound like Cotto was having trouble finding fights.

Firstly i couldnt give a shit about his background etc... this is based on in the ring

He's a good slick boxer, with a massive heart and has proven he'll fight on both empty and on pride. The downside is he lacks real offence. I've no doubt if he catches somebody right he'll hurt them, as Ottke did with Mundaine, but he's missing something which will cost him rounds, and eventually the fight, against the likes of Hatton and cotto. If a fighter doesnt think the other can hurt him you have a problem, at elite elvel Paulies got that problem. If N'dou and Ngojdu <sp> can get to him so will the others. It's lucky he's got a cracking set of whiskers to amke up for the power he's missing.

in many ways Paulie is the polar opposite of Hatton.....stylish, good-looking, funny, down-to-earth. He's not an elite fighter but never mind, lets hope he knocks Hatton's cunt in.

So you're saying that Hatton IS an elite fighter?

Jesus have you guys ever stopped to think how sad you really are? What is this compulsive obsession with hating a TV persona who you don't know personally from Adam? How about taking up a hobby, chess is meant to broaden the mind!
