Paulie Malignaggi's Workout Photos & Quotes


ALL PHOTOS BY TEDDY BLACKBURN/DBE

“You’re going to see more improvements on May 15. [Head trainer] Sherif Younan and I have a lot of creativity in the gym. Every fight since I’ve started training with Sherif, I’ve been getting better and better.

“I’ve put a lot of pressure on myself. I am a perfectionist when it comes to boxing. Come fight night, everything will fall into place like the pieces of a puzzle.

“I believe I’m the faster fighter. If I get hit on chin, I’m not going to wobble. If Amir Khan starts wobbling, I hope they have a pillow for him in the corner, because he’s going to sleep.

“I’m going to enjoy sinking my punches into Khan. Some fights are just business, but not this one. I’m going to enjoy every punch I land.”

Malignaggi’s Trainer, Sherif Younan:

“Since day one, Paulie and I just clicked. We understand each other’s styles. My work revolves around speed, and Paulie is all about speed, so it goes hand-in-hand.

“Everything in camp has been wonderful. We’ve actually enjoyed this training camp a lot. As Paulie and I spend more and more time together, we learn more and we are able to employ more tactics. We can’t wait to get into the ring on May 15.”

Thanks for the great photos!

This is going to a hell of a fight! I still have my doubts of Khan (I do want Khan to win actually as he is from the UK and Muslim) but.. you know.. this is going to be a crazy fight!

Thanks

I can't wait to see this fight. They are both competitive players. I'm following links to Souleymane M'baye vs. Antonin Decarie | Interim WBA welterweight title . I hope you will have an online stream then.
