On Sunday, a special afternoon PPV will come to U.S. fight fans by way of the Ukraine, as Paulie Malignaggi challenges for the WBA welterweight title held by Vyacheslav Senchenko. Malignaggi traveled to Senchenko's home country (although Senchenko is now training in Los Angeles with Freddie Roach) for the opportunity to grab a title in a second weight class. Will he get the job done? He's ready and eager for the challenge, and is prepared to do the rest of his talking in the ring.
