When Tony Harrison meets Sergey Rabchenko on July 30 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, their 154-pound eliminator bout will be as much about division relevance as a title shot.
Paulie Malignaggi’s voice is like a see-through dress: It hides nothing while revealing just about everything.
Paulie Malignaggi was hurting, no doubt about it. In what might have been the final fight in the two-division champion’s career Saturday night, he certainly had the look of defeat all over him.
Even though he won both fights, Danny Garcia’s mood at Barclays Center was significantly more upbeat Saturday night after beating Paulie Malignaggi than it was after he defeated Lamont Peterson in April at the same venue.
