Duan (@duandub) and I get together to catch up on the last few weeks in boxing, look back at the year, and talk about fights we’d love to see in 2014.

Here’s what we discuss in detail:

– Marcos Maidana’s huge win over Adrien Broner
– What it means for both guys
– Paulie Malignaggi’s win over Zab Judah and where Paulie goes from there
– Guillermo Rigondeaux’s win over Joseph Agbeko
– Felix Sturm’s quick victory over Darren Barker
– Who might be the fighter of the year
– Who we expect to break out in 2014
– Who we’d like to see Mayweather, Pacquiao, Maidana, Canelo, Froch, Ward, Martinez, Golovkin, Cotto, Marquez, and Bradley fight plus more

Showtime Boxing – Zab Judah Vs. Paulie Malignaggi Play By Play

Judah vs. Malignaggi

Predictions seem to be split on this one, including the one done at Bad Left Hook. Duan has Paulie winning by decision and I’m going the other way with a decision victory for Judah.

This is the beginning of two really solid weekends of boxing to end the year, with Adrien Broner vs. Marcos Maidana coming up next weekend.

Earlier in the night, Sakio Bike and Anthony Dirrell went to a draw which Duan called smashing. Erislandy Lara routed Austin Trout. And Shawn Porter beat Devon Alexander to win his welterweight title.

All the talking is over and it’s time to get in the ring. According to @dadrrtywhyteboi, it’s French Montana who is performing the terrible song bringing Adrien Broner to the ring.

Round 1

Broner is letting Paulie bang away and his arms, which are protecting the lower half of his torso. Paulie was busy, but didn’t press Broner to do what he didn’t want to. Broner didn’t really throw but landed some really stiff jabs that bounced Paulie’s head back.

Round 2

Paulie was throwing frequent punches, many of them not sharp, but his activity brought out some activity in Broner. Broner would shake his head at Paulie and then throw a lead right, kind of like Mayweather. Near the end of the round, Paulie was falling forward and grabbed Broner like a double leg takedown. Broner either lost balance or lifted his left leg as if to throw a kick of some sort. I think he just lost his balance personally.

Round 3

The round was one in which Paulie could’ve stolen just based on how many punches he threw in comparison to Broner, but near the end of the round, Broner walked him down and landed some really nice shots. Every time Paulie gets hit, it looks like he gets hit. When he hits Broner, everything looks glancing. Continue reading
