Episode 2: Paulie Malignaggi

He's back in the news. The original "Jersey Shore" character is profiled on this first in-depth exploration on the Characters of Boxing (And Beyond) Podcast. We look at this rise of Paulie Malignaggi's career and how he got to where he is today as both a top Showtime Boxing analyst and a bare knuckle fighter.

Paulie has been scuffling and having a lot of back-and-forth with MMA fighter Artem Lobov. As we know, Lobov has a close connection with legendary UFC fighter Conor McGregor. Could there be a possibility that Paulie is utilizing the media as a way to get to Conor for a massive pay day and return to the boxing ring? In the meantime he's busy prepping for a June 6 Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) bout as a way to regain relevance as a fighter. 


Paulie is definitely a character as he proves he's still hungry to be a world champion in the ring despite being the top fight analyst in boxing (as part of Showtime's production team). He still has an itch to scratch and we explore his career and how he got to where he's at tonight in this latest installment of the Character's of Boxing (Beyond) Podcast.
