Porter: I will steamroll Paulie on my way to victory; Malignaggi: He doesn’t have the tools

Showtime officially announced today that IBF welterweight champion Shawn “Showtime” Porter against former two-time and two-division word champion and current Showtime analyst Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi has been added to the April 19 telecast that also features title fights between Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins against Beibut Shumenov and Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin against Lukas Konecny, making the telecast a world title tripleheader at the D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C.

Shawn Porter: I fought hard to get this title. Paulie says he wants it, but is he willing to go through me to get it?. Fighting Malignaggi is like fighting Alexander. They don’t have the strength or power to keep me away, and I will steamroll Paulie on my way to victory April 19.

Paulie Malignaggi: I’m excited to be back in a title fight so soon after my win over Zab Judah. I will become a three-time world champion on April 19. Porter is a good fighter and I’m sure he’ll be a champion again in the future, but he doesn’t have the tools.
