    Haven't seen the fight, but I read that it was very close. Did Paulie embarrass boxing? With only punching allowed, anything less than a schooling/beat down was a value (Paulie said that if didn't put Lobov into a coma, it's a failure). Talked a mountain of ****, too.

    Since most of the idiotic mma fans and general public will blow this up into a big deal and use it in mma vs boxing discussions for years to come, it does make boxing look bad in that sense, imo.

    In reality I do think he let boxing down a bit but not as bad as will be made out.

    Yes he did, but let's not pretend like boxing fans didn't bring this upon themselves too.

    Paulie and most boxing fans were saying how superior a boxer, eventho a wash-up is to a MMA fighter, talking about how delusional MMA fans have to be to think Artem even has a chance, etc... and now what? All we hear now is that Paulie is washed-up, shot, has brittle hands, wasn't ever that great, didn't they know this before the fight happened? No? Yes?

    And let's not forget the fact that Artem is a never-was, that he only managed to stay in the UFC for so long because he's friend with McGregor.

    The boxing vs MMA debate was over the second 40 year old FlIVd came out of retirement and knocked out 26 year old superstar Conor McGregor. After that I don't want to hear another word from MMa fans about how mma is better than boxing or whatever their beef is. I couldn't care less wtf happened in the Paulie fight. Its bareknuckle fighting. Its not mma, its not boxing its bareknuckle fighting. Thats a different ballgame.

    He did, he actually started of very well winning the first 2 rounds clearly. But like many people thought would be the case his hands just wouldn't hold up. Paulie says he hurt his right hand in the 2nd round, which became obvious when he pretty much threw no punches the last 3 rounds.

    Malignaggi was scared of getting hit throughout the whole fight. A lot of keep away jabs and if he landed anything, it was to the body. Lobov was the aggressor throughout most of the fight and he threw his punches with mean intentions. The most significant punches were landed by Lobov and he actually staggered Malignaggi in the 3rd round.

    Paulie used his speed and footwork to avoid getting hit as much as he, but he didn't throw a lot in return. It's bare knuckle fighting, so I think he was a lot more cautious than usual and Lobov just outworked him in the last half of the fight.

    Paulie lost. It’s a fight and he landed pity pat jabs and ran. Lobov hurt him, staggered him, was the aggressor and had him clinching and running all right. He had no answer for lobov when lobov simply bum rushed him.

    Lobov actually broke his left in the 2nd round. Look at it.

    Paulie claimed to have broken his right.

    Anyhow,no shame on boxing here.

    Just an interesting sideshow.

    Except, Paulie being shot, past it, feather fisted and with glass hands, is an actual fact.

    Never weres beat shot ex champions all the time. No different tonight.

    Yeah, there are post fight interviews with each of them. Artem has a clearly damaged left hand. Said it happened in the second.
