Former multiple division Boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi has been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism lately ever since his major upset loss to former UFC featherweight Artem Lobov in his Bare Knuckle Boxing debut recently. UFC welterweight and former Olympic wrestler, Ben Askren and former UFC middleweight and light heavyweight title contender, Chael Sonnen, in particular, have dished out too much criticism to Malignaggi and have also question whether boxers are really as good as they think they are.
Malignaggi recently finally replied to Askren and Sonnen’s comments. He absolutely verbally smashed both of them and challenged them to go and try their hands at Boxing. Here’s what he had to say:
Literally, if you listen to any of their analysis, you got Chael Sonnen talking about how boxing is not a sport, this guy just walked in and beat me. Chael, cuz, you not that old, bro. Go and do it. Go and do it, bro. Go and do it. Go fight any light heavyweight in the world. Ben Askren, the same shit. I did it with one hand. I did it with half a hand. And I did it bare knuckle. Go and do it. Go put on gloves if it’s not that hard.
Because you know we make more than you guys. You know we get paid more than you. You know that already. So come in. Come and do it, cuz! It’s that easy? Go make your money!
