Malignaggi Doesn't Think "Spoiled Brat" Broner Will Do Rematch

BY Michael Woods ON July 16, 2013

BronerMalignaggi Hogan111Paul Malignaggi has been campaigning for a rematch against Adrien Broner in the weeks following his split decision loss to the former Mr. HBO at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on June 22.

I asked Malignaggi for an update on the status of that campaign on Monday, during a lunch at his advisor's pizza shop in lower Manhattan, Portobello's.

"I don't think my next fight is going to be a Broner rematch," the 32-year-old said at Anthony Catanzaro's lunch hub, in between bites of pie and chomps on some Dunkin Donuts Munchkins. "I don't think he's going to do it. But we'll see where it goes. But if that l'il spoiled brat Broner to man up, and gives the public and more so me what they and I want to see..."

Malignaggi pointed out that Floyd Mayweather made it his mission to clear controversy after many folks thought Jose Luis Castillo got the better of him in their first encounter, in 2002, so he agreed to a sequel eight months later. Paulie said that's the sort of competitor Floyd is and that contrasts with Broner ( seen on right, after June 22 decision, in Hogan photo), who he said has run from three sequel situations where he could have engaged in a rematch to stave off controversy.

The luxuriating experience of eating what his heart desired didn't dim the Brooklyn-bred boxer's fire, though. "Let's call a spade a spade, Broner is severly overhyped, severly overrated, and he continues to show that every time he steps up to real, quality opposition. We can all show it against the pizza guys in the kitchen," he said, pointing to a man with a sauce-smeared apron putting pepperonis on a pie. "Floyd Mayweather dominated very good fighters, Adrien Broner dominates garbage. When he steps up against very good fighters, he has trouble winning cleanly."

He went on to say, with the weeks having passed, that he doesn't think he "exposed" Broner but rather that it was already there to be seen, but wasn't, because most of the boxing media is easily fooled. "I never thought much of the kid to begin with. Talents like him are a dime a dozen. And he's not a hard puncher, maybe because he knocked out 22 laundry workers people think so."

I brought up Broner's outside-the-ring behavior. His Twitter timeline has had people raising eyebrows of late. Just last night, he Tweeted, "I be feeling like I'm go die soon!!" and before that, "Yeah I love them strippers!!!" He's been on the Americas Most Wanted festival rap tour, topped by L'il Wayne, he says, and partying in Miami, tearing it up.

Hand it to the kid, he's got some performance chops beyond the ring, as on display in a July 13 YouTube video, titled "Adrien Broner takes a (number two) in Popeyes." The boxer, who these days seems to be having a slight identity crisis, in his desire to be a rapper, wipes his tuchus, and turns the camera on the bowl, which is full of five dollar bills. He even poops money, he declares.

(Note: This video had blown up a bit by Tuesday night, with Deadspin running a story on it, and a Twitter beef erupting when a reporter took offense to the "dirty money" act, and said that he informed authorities of the possible transgression. I have to guess the Feds have better things to do than track that money, and see if it isn't play money, so, my guess is, Broner gets himself a nice little flurry of buzz...which I think correlates with what Malignaggi says in a couple paragraphs down.)

OK, "performance chops" might not be the proper term for it, but that sort of humor does have its appeal in some circles, if not in mine...

I asked Paulie if he felt any sort of sympathy or empathy for a kid who seems to be struggling with the "good life," if you take Tweets like, "I'm bout to play Russia roulette with a fully loaded pistol maybe all my problems will go away!!!" from July 11 even partially seriously.

Because as a fellow human being, looking at someone with such potential EVEN JOKING about suicidal tendencies, I feel for Broner, even if he doesn't care that I do or want me to, or maintains he's just messing....

"I look at it like this, he's a spoiled brat who's looking for attention, and doesn't know what to do or say to get attention, the kid is not suicidal, the kid is not looking to kill himself, the kid does not have any problems," Malignaggi said. "A suicidal person doesn't behave like this (flushing money). Killing yourself people are going to talk about you. He's like a 12 year old. The problem is people enable him. He acts out like a little kid. In the end you gonna enable him or make him man up and actually do something?"

Broner is a child, uncle Al better get in his ear and tell him to get his act together. Suicidal posts coupled with arrogance is just going to make you look like a "spoiled brat" seeking attention, it's not promotable. The kid needs a smack upside his head and an arse whoopin in the ring.

amayseng says:

Broner has 5 kids if he was HALF the parent he SHOULD be he wouldn't have time to feel suicidal or post to twitter all day. The guy is a poor human being.

Carmine Cas says:

He's an extreme product of America's superficial society, I can only imagine what his kids are going to look like

the Roast says:

Paulie eating pizza and Dunkin Doughnuts? Who is his next fight, Andre Ward?

brownsugar says:

I'm not sure how much of Paulie's commentary is valid ....coming from Broner's #1 enemy. A man who also has emotional issues..
And quite frankly I don't even want to know the details of Broners' latest folly.
Paulie knocked the shine off Broners rising star. He should do the rematch and shut Paulie up permanently with a convincing performance...Floyd had his Castillo....Floyd Lyte has his Malignacci

Spinach Chin says:

hopefully he's smart enough to feel dumb about this when he's 37 with 8 or 9 losses, busted -*** broke.

How about Floyd Really Really Lite?

That about covers it...lol

Bernie Campbell says:

Did you ever see how sickening these rehearsed and prepared encounters the New York Yankees have with the press! Did you ever really appreciate what a joker that idiot "Cashmin" is with his clean cut standard answers knowing he probably is a real prick out of character! The Yankees arnt even allowed to have facial hair! What the fuh! Of course its more than baseball, it is even more than revenue! These guys are pushing their agenda on everyone, it leads into the work force for you and me, and into society! No spontaneity, everything unrealistic politically correct, no mistakes. A lot to live up to, especially when its against your politics! We have freedom of speech in this country, people died for that right for the American public! Adrian Broner is a maverick, whether youd like to believe it or not! He plays with the media and big brother! People are trying to discredit his character! But the friscoe is a true freedom fighter! Big Brother has too much to say about our lives, they try to tell us what we should do and for the most part people follow like a herd of Buffaloes! Kudos to Adrian Broner

dino da vinci says:

Bernie, Bernie, Bernie...

As it pertains to Adrien Broner, no. You talk about him like he's an American Original, which he certainly is not. What he does have is million dollar ability but it's powered by a ten cent brain. Kid's never had an original thought in his life.

Radam G says:

Ddv, hehehehehehehehehehehe! And you call me cruel and in need of a governor. "A ten-cent brain!" Hahaha! Danggit! Now that was COLDHEARTED to the infinite power. Is it comedy season up in this Universe?

Now you, B-Camp, A-Seng and D-Water are killing it with the witty, cold-to-the heart, but-might-be true smashing comedic remarks. Hahaha! I luv this place! Holla!

Bernie Campbell says:

Adrian Broner keeps the powers in check! Trust me if it wasn't for a guy like Broner, these guys in power would take the ball and run with it bigger than they have already! An American Original? No, hes not the American Mesiah! But our system allows for a guy to throw it out there as a voice of reason! You big birds don't get it do you! The Idiots that run professional sports are really not nice people! How do you think they got ahead in the first place! They protect their turf no matter whether right wrong or otherwise! I really believe their pp's wouldn't work if they didn't! Just look at all the bogus sh... in this sport, and howabout other sports! How bout that cat that got his freakin head cut off in Brazil! Where there is money, there is corruption! And then Adrian Broner comes along!

Carmine Cas says:

Baseball is so ZZZzzzzzzzz, it's one of the strongest examples of corruption in sports, IMO. Broner is no maverick, he's merely following the path his idol already late but in much less refined fashion. IMO he teeters on the fence of people so disgusted by him they want see him knocked out and they just flat out will not watch him. I think it's a combination of his brash childish persona coupled with his strategy that make him so obnoxious, either way it's overkill. I don't think he'll give Malignaggi a rematch unless the money is right

Bernie Campbell says:

Hey Carmine, Is somebody giving you free tickets? How do you know Broner's got an idol? Mayweather didn't do half the sh.. that Broners done already? This guy WILL be an issue! And power to him! Letum shake up the apple cart! Boxing is too fcn predictable! Gotta keep im guessing! Too much phoney bravado and bullsh...! Have you ever listened to Floyd Patterson talk? Give Broner a friggun Medal!

dino da vinci says:

Well Bernie it's like this...

It's believed Broner's has an idol because it's all he talks about.

Let's agree to disagree, this guy won't be an issue.

Boxing is indeed somewhat predictable, with guys being coached on what to say and what not to say. Remember Oscar's "He's a great champion" speech after every outing? As for Floyd Patterson, yes, he was reserved, always a gentleman, but of course that's how he was raised. AB is not deserving of any medals.

amayseng says:

Broner is a poor human being and a worse parent.
I'm glad he can fight and enjoy watching him fight.
I don't need to be entertained outside the ring I'm 35 and busy enough.
Briber get off of twitter tweeting about suicide or complaining like a high school girl.
Grow up you are a parent.
Dude is bitch made , no real man and parent looks up to another man.
That **** is for kids

Bernie Campbell says:

If everyone led by example like Floyd Patterson and Jermaine Taylor their wouldn't be a need for this dialogue! But guys like Broner are the point men! The fcn idiots that run the show are the source of dysfunction! Women Boxing? he he he he! 4 champions in each division! Questionable sponsors! Arum and his boys downplayin Marijuana use! Racial exploitation! Homer's in the broadcast booth, questionable and I mean questionable decisions, Bogus titles that no one defends! Chris Fcn John! Intentional non-coverage of European Boxers! Matches that should happen but never do! Sportswriters that are getting both sides of their bread buttered! Corupt Casino linkages to the fight game! Pornographic associations! You go Adrian!

spit bucket says:

Well,
He is under Floyd's wing and Mayweather's whole focus is on money, so hopefully he'll look out for Broner financially and he won't end up broke... unless he shows up at his next fight with diamond studded teeth. Then he's beyond redemption.

Bernie Campbell says:

Whats Floyd and his public gonna do if he comes into an Arena with pressed hair and a peace medallion and hes on the level!

Carmine Cas says:

I don't need tickets Bernie lol I get info information about his idol revelations from his mouth calling him "big bro". Also when he was interviewed with the floyd and the goons from tmt, he was humble under the arm of may. Amayeng makes a great point, what kind of role model of father who idolizes himself to another man? That's not being a man. AB doesn't owe money anything except his identity lol, Floyd is allowing this arse kissing cuz of AB's talent and he's flattered hahahaha

brownsugar says:

If you've actually paid attention to Floyd's latest comments regarding Broner its evident Floyd is putting some distance between himself and the flamboyant boxer..
Broners response to Floyd's advice to tone down the circus act......."If it ain't broke ...don't fix it".
If anyone is interested in hitting on Floyds trophy chick, Ms Jackson .. she's a free woman after receiving her walking papers from her former p4p boyfriend... apparently Floyd is just as shrewd in his personal life as he is in the squared circle .... Floyd allegedly hired a private eye to tail his former girlfriend and discovered the sexy diva was cheating on him with a well known Los Angeles Club owner. I only mention this because of its possible psychological impact on Floyd's performance in the up coming super fight. In the famous words of Paulie Malignacci "Golddiggers do Matter".

amayseng says:

For real ms J was cheating?
No surprise in this society.
I think it makes Floyd fight harder. Meh doesn't like the embarrassment.

Bernie Campbell says:

You puppys sound like some old crusty women! Who gives a flying sh. about the gossip! Does that make you or me better people! The truth shall set you free! Broner keeps up this pace a couple of more miles he will be a threat! Is he gonna accept it and do his thing or his he gonna be somebodys boy and apologize and promise to be good! As soon as he does that somebody like Mathysse is gonna lay his *** flat! If he takes on the mantle of a real warrior well it is what it is!

According to feeds on my gossipy Facebook page...these events have already a couple weeks old. Floyd struck back by associating with a bevy of beauties including his front man's ( lil Wayne's) former fiance'. I don't seek this stuff out....it finds me on facebook ever since I liked a couple of Mayweather pages... I have no way to verify this info but I have wandered across similar blurbs on the web....I bet RG would know...he was probably in the jaccuzi chatting with Money May giving advice when he hired the detective.
...But your right Amaseng ...Floyd is probably ready to pop a knuckle bone now.

Bernie Campbell says:

You guys are -issing in the wind! Go read the tabloids!

I don't know if it makes you a better friscoe or not but you can either read it or ignore it Bernie..

Radam G says:

Double standards of man. Ms Jackson clearly hollered on HBO 24/7and Showtime's Access that she and "Floyd have an open relationship."

Floyd and she are just bulljiving to increas interest in the fight. It is just as that fake jive fight between pops and son a couple of fights ago. Money May is a He Ho who always on the hunt and go. Ms. Jackson is a temp-booty high-prize opportunist ho. And that is not a put down, but Hip-Hop lingo.

GBP, Showtime and the Shadow and TMT are pulling every optical illusion and gimmick to increase buying of PPVs. The ladder is shaking and baking. And to get maximum buys and eyeballs watching, STRAIGHT faking. Holla!

Publicity Stunting... interesting call RG... 24/7 will surely confirm or deny your analysis.
If your right about this one .. you are truly da man.

amayseng says:

Ms J is nice to look at but other than that her time on all access was a waste. She's boring.
It's becoming the same ol same ol.
All access needs to get gritty with the training and intensity. Truly show what dedication these guys have day in and day out.

Hey wonder if Liev will be narrating the show time all access this time. He is working for show time now.

Sex and controversy sells, we'll see on All Access
