Malignaggi-Diaz set!

All open issues have been resolved regarding the proposed Paulie Malignaggi and Juan Diaz fight on August 22, 2009 in Houston, Texas. DiBella Entertainment and Golden Boy wrapped up negotiations today and tied up all loose ends for the fight- including the agreed upon weight of 138.5 lbs. “This is a fight between two guys looking to prove something. We are both coming of losses in big fights and we are both coming in hungry. Expect fireworks,” promised Malignaggi. Promoter Lou DiBella added, “I told Paulie to lay off his Grandma’s pasta and eat one less cannoli. Paulie is confident of his speed and boxing ability and is prepared to win in the lion’s den of Houston.”
