ya know , i dont know, it may be at a catchweight of like 145 or something. malignaggi may move up to 147 for this fight only but it could very well take place at 140.

147 would seem logical, Malignaggi moving up and JCC moving down. Malignaggi would have to vacate the title he just won though wouldnt he.

Its weird. i really like Paulie but im not %100 sure why. He has shown TONS of heart (Cotto v Malignaggi). Im not sure why i like him so much though. I have the feeling that if had had ANY power, he would be at the top of his weight class. but that is his downfall. NO power, not just no knockout power, but no power. I have yet to see him hurt somebody.

Maybe thats why i like him, its like he still wins by PURE boxing ability, cuase he has nothing else. And im talking boxing.. not pop and run "boxing" tactics. REAl boxing...

my 2 cents.

P.s. how would paulie ever gain power? work out? or is it sort of a born talent he lacks?

Welcome to the board Melty. I, too, really love watching Malignaggi fight. He is an amazing talent and will win an easy UD vs. JCC in my opinion. I can't wait for odds on this one.

im hearing it will be at 147 and no malignaggi wont have to vacate his title, HE can if he plans on staying at 147 but he has no business really at that weight for now. His body looks physically strong at 140 although he doesnt hit that hard. He should outbox chavez all night, even chavez sr had hella trouble with boxers.

im pretty sure its a sure thing. theres always a chance someone may back out, so no fight is 100 percent sure

Agreed. Malignaggi will outpoint Hopkins easily IMO. I would much rather see Hopkins vs. JCC Jr. Who was it that Hopkins robbed in his last fight? I can't remember.

steve forbes was the guy that got robbed and it must have been one of the worst decisions of the last 10 years!

forbes should be in the driving seat for a fight with pauly not d-hop, obviously uncle bernard is influencing a lot of people to help him though.

by the way, malignaggi owns d-hop 120-108.

Yeah i think Malniaggi will will win a UD 120-108.

And i also think that JCC would win Hopkins by early by mid round ko/tko
