In what may have been the final fight of his professional boxing career, Paulie Malignaggi was overwhelmed and dominated by IBF welterweight champion Shawn “Showtime” Porter on Saturday night at the DC Armory in our nation’s capital.
Porter dominated from the jump with his speed and power, which he used to torch Malignaggi on way to a fourth-round knockout victory.
It was a sad way to see Malignaggi go out, but he was clearly outclassed and admitted after the match that it may have been his last. However, Malignaggi stated that he would take some time to think over his future rather than making an emotional decision.
