Broner-Malignaggi conference call erupts, plug pulled on Malignaggi

By Karl Freitag

All hell broke loose when WBA welterweight world champion Paulie Malignaggi and current WBC lightweight and two-division world champion Adrien Broner held a media conference call on Wednesday in advance of their June 22 world championship fight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Broner answered questions for about 20 minutes and then Malignaggi got on the line and pandemonium ensued. The moderators finally pulled the plug on Malignaggi to allow Broner to make a final statement. After a delay, a much more subdued Paulie got back on the call. (More to come)
