Many of us had hoped the Mikey Garcia vs. Juan Manuel Lopez meeting would produce more two-way fireworks than it did, but we're getting no breather, no chance for tears to well up, because Paulie Malignaggi and Adrien Broner hook up this coming weekend.

Shock Of The New: Adrien Broner, Paulie Malignaggi, Tyson Fury And David Haye Take Trashiness ...

Habitually mined as broadcasting gold, vulgarity is a modern commodity. Well-placed in order to capitalise, boxing promotion has foregone decency for the sake of a fast buck.
