Lobov and Malignaggi both stated in recent interviews given to MMA Fighting, that they have respect for each other and have buried their beef now. Lobov even went as far as and claimed that he tips his hat to Paulie. Here’s what Lobov had to say:

I said this before, for me I will always respect the fighter that shows up, Paulie showed up to the spar. If you were to offer the same thing to many other boxers, they probably wouldn’t show up to the spar but he did and he did a full 12 rounds twice and he showed up again today. I take my hat off to him. He’s always been a fighter and he still is.

Below is Malignaggi’s statement:

Maybe this wasn’t (Jason) Knight vs. Lobov, this wasn’t the all-out war that Knight vs. Lobov was, but I had to dig deep and I got left one-handed so I had to stay calm in the line of fire and Artem had to dig deep because he had to chase me trying to land the shots that he couldn’t land and he had to still go for it and try to win the fight. You still gain that respect for one another, nonetheless. And I think we have that.
