He said before the fight he was worried about the bias judge's.......Malinaggi was extra pissed saying he hates boxing.....That dude was letting his feeling be heard bigtime......I thought in the first couple rounds that diaz was gonna smother him....But malinaggi came back and IMO won that fight.........Malinaggi is quick man.....

makes me wonder why the hell Malinaggi took the fight in the first place? Diaz is a Golden Boy fighter. FIghting in his home town houston which has a bad history of bad decisions. Houston judges. He said before the fight the odds were stacked against him. Diaz is also a 135 pound fighter Paulie is 140. The fight made no sense from the start.

Whatever though, Paulie's only two losses were beatings, once by Cotto and once by Hatton, he may be going overboard with the conspiracy theories.

De La Hoya Blasts Houston Judges Over Poor Scores

By Michael Doss

Promoter Oscar De La Hoya, president of Golden Boy Promotions, kept it real about the wide scores in the Paulie Malignaggi vs Juan Diaz and Daniel Jacobs vs Ishe Smith bouts. Both fights were close. The Golden Boy fighters, Jacobs and Diaz, won unanimous decisions on Saturday at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. In both of the fights there were two absurd score cards. One judge had it 118-110 for Diaz, while another had it 100-89 for Jacobs in the fight with Smith.

De La Hoya, to his credit, spoke against the poor scoring.

"The fight was a close fight [Diaz-Maliganggi]. We look at the landslide that one of the judges had, I don't agree with it. I'm not a judge but I don't agree with it. Paulie Malignaggi was right [about getting screwed by the scoring] but it was a close fight. Both fighters gave it their all. You have to give it up to Paulie Malignaggi because he came to fight. He was in tremendous shape and put on one hell of a performance," De La Hoya said.

"That landslide of 118-110 - what is that? We don't need that. It was a closer fight, there is no doubt about that. The [Smith-Jacobs] fight was a close fight. Ishe put up a tremendous fight. When see scores like 100-89, the fight wasn't seen like that. We all saw a close fight. We all saw a great fight."

Amir Khan vs Paulie Malignaggi? DiBella Wants it

By Rick Reeno

Promoter Lou DiBella is already making plans to secure another major fight for Paulie Malignaggi, the former IBF junior welterweight champion. Malignaggi lost a twelve round decision to Juan Diaz on Saturday night in Houston, Texas. Many of the ringside observers, including a good portion of the viewing audience and HBO's unofficial score keeper Harold Lederman - scored the fight for Malignaggi.

Despite the setback, DiBella sees a lot of world class opportunities for Malignaggi. While some have disagreed on the scores, almost everyone agrees that Malignaggi put on his best performance since the title winning effort over Lovemore N'dou in June of 2007.

Following the event, DiBella spoke with BoxingScene.com about some of the post-fight plans for the "Magic Man." The fight he would really like to make is Paulie Malignaggi vs. WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan. Based on some of the recent happenings, Khan should have the ability to make an optional defense before facing either Marcos Maidana or Dmitriy Salita.

"I thought Paulie looked great tonight. He fought one hell of a fight. I would really like to put him in the ring with Amir Khan. If that fight can't be made, and Juan Manuel Marquez loses against to [Floyd] Mayweather, then I would probably try to get him a fight with Marquez," DiBella said.

Who else was Malignaggi to fight? He said himself that if he didn't take this he wouldn't be able to get a big fight till 2010 if that. He has no leverage in negotiations .. he's not a local draw where he's at, he doesn't have a title and he's not fan friendly fighter. He box's well but doesn't have much pop to him.

Boxing is business first and Malignaggi needs to get his paychecks when they come to him. It's the way it is ..

do what most people do after getting stopped for the first time in your career - fight a bum or two and work your way back up. He just got paid from fighting Ricky Hatton. Not every single fight has to be a "payday" fight.

It was a bad fight from the beginning and he knew it going into the fight.

And there is always Zab Judah, that's a fight New Yorkers want to see

He did fight a bum after he lost to Hatton. Malignaggi has serious hand problems that he's had surgery on it at least 4 times iirc. Who knows how much longer he'll be able to keep fighting.

He has every right to flip out the way he did and I'm glad he did it. He took a chance, got a good payday, won the fight and got dicked. When you're a guy like Malignaggi .. a fighter people aren't interested in seeing you have to take the money while it's there. It's either take it or HOPE that you get something better down the road. I'd take the money I know I can make instead of hoping for something down the line.

you're right Malignaggi did fight a bum, I didn't realize that.

I'm not saying he doesn't have a right to bitch, because clearly he does. I'm just sayin I'm not sure why he took the fight in the first place if he knew going into the fight it was nearly impossible for him to win. He has no KO power so he would basically have to win almost every round to win in houston. I mean they weren't even in the same division and there was no demand for them to fight. I guess if it truly was the only fight he could land then yeah, sucks for him.

Looks like he might get a shot at Amir Khan so he still has more out there for him, but like he said he's going to be the opponent for now on but you know that's the nature of the sport. He got beat down by cotto and stopped by hatton and his stock has gone down dramatically.

I do feel bad for the guy though, even though I don't like guido's. He won the fight and he deserved the decision without question.
