Amir Khan vs. Paulie Malignaggi‎ Preview and Prediction

Note: I haven’t read any other previews.  Here is the beginning of their weak a$$ fight during the weigh in.  Watch part 2 here to see a little more of two tiny men pushing each other around.

Preview:

Amir Khan has a glass jaw as seen here.  Has Freddie Roach taught him to keep his hands up?  It doesn’t matter, Paulie Malignaggi couldn’t knock out a flea.

But, Paulie has fought 2 of the best fighters boxing has to offer – Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto – down to the wire.  He went 12 rounds with Cotto and the last 2 of those rounds with a BROKEN JAW as seen here.  The decision wasn’t in Paulie’s favor, but, he’s got the heart of a champion and doesn’t know when to quit.  Speaking of quitting, I’m not sure Paulie could have beaten Hatton had his corner not called the fight as seen here.  Though Malignaggi‎’s punches in round 10 were meaningless, I don’t know how your corner can throw in the towel when you’re dancing circles around your competetor.

Known:

Amir Khan isn’t nearly as good as Cotto or Hatton.  Paulie can’t knock anyone out.  Khan has a glass jaw but is trained by Freddie Roach. Paulie Malignaggi has 3 losses and a 4th retires him – I’m not sure he’s ready to hang them up yet.

Prediction:

Paulie Malignaggi wins by unanimous decision after a fight that goes 12 rounds.

How does the above compare to what other mainstream boxing sites are saying?
