At Friday's weigh-in for Lamont Peterson-Lucas Matthysse Saturday on Showtime, BoxingScene's David Greisman and I did some interviews on the fight itself, the topics in the headline, some upcoming bouts, the latest figure for Floyd Mayweather-Robert Guerrero pay-per-view sales and more. Read on for word from welterweight/Showtime commentator Paulie Malignaggi; upward-moving junior welterweight Amir Khan; and Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer.
Earlier this week, the welterweight contender had said in an interview that despite signing an agreement to get advanced drug testing via the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for his June bout with Adrien Broner, testing had not yet begun.
"They started testing me the next day," Malignaggi said Friday. Had they read the article? "I don't know. I didn't ask them. They're just, like, robots who show up and say, 'pee here, blood here.' They read you a bunch of instructions."
