OK he didn't hear the final bell - but was taking on a prime P4P No.1 outside of his weight division, whilst Paulie was taking on a guy who had been eating celery for 3 months to make 140lbs!
Rickys beaten good enough fighters for his loss not to be his most noteworthy fight.

When, ever, has a fight been called off when the fighter has made weight?

The only time I can think of was when Castillo was to fight Bradley for the right to face Witter.

From what I understand, he eventually got to 140 but was so off-colour the doctor just said no.

If I can find the pics from the weigh in I will post them - but he looked like an AIDS victim on those scales.

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.
who says he hasn't had many amateur fights. there was a guy on this forum that used to train with him. they were amateurs together when they were younger.

During Malignaggi amateur career, he trained at Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn. As an amateur, he won the 1998 and 2001 New York Golden Gloves Amateur Championship, as well as the 2001 United States National Amateur Championship.

Malignaggi also won the 2001 Everlast U.S. Championships on March 13-17, 2001 in Colorado Springs, Colo by beating Van Oscar Penovaroff, Antonio Davis, and Luis Merced, all by decision. his record was 40-9.

Thats a pull out, not a call off.

Appreciate Beestons point about castillo. Didnt think he'd made the weight for Bradley. Assumed he'd failed to make weight when the fight was called off.
