Since the beginning of their professional careers, Paulie "The Magic Man" Malignaggi and Adrien "The Problem" Broner, two of the biggest talkers in all of boxing, have never been afraid to speak up. Now, the time has come to put up or shut up as Malignaggi will defend his WBA Welterweight World Championship against undefeated Two-Division World Champion Broner on Saturday, June 22 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Plus, the heavyweight rematch the world has been waiting for is set as Johnathon Banks will look to repeat his 2012 upset win over Seth "Mayhem" Mitchell in the co-feature for Banks' NABO and WBC International Heavyweight titles.
"This fight was the main motivation for winning my second world championship last year," said Malignaggi.
"I wanted be in a huge main event at Barclays Center. This is a blockbuster event and I can't wait to make a successful title defense in Brooklyn where my roots are."
