    Weak. He acts like he is always better than everyone in the sport. He is better Judges,Other Fighters(like when he crashed Thurman post fight, and now the Media. Paulie has become Teddy Atlas.

    Don't really disagree with anything Paulie says.

    Whatever your thoughts on Paulie, his personality and his style, I don't think anyone can deny that he calls out what he sees as wrong regardless of whether it, on paper at least, would be a hindrance to his career. We need more of the media to do the same.

    I like Paulie. The things he says he says from experience. The guy has been jobbed on the cards. The Gale Van Hoy controversy was like something out of a comedy movie about boxing it was so absurd.

    Yeah, he's pretty much right....and the criticism of "oh, he was just playing it safe.."..we hear that shit all the time in MMA as well. It's so easy to say that when it's not our lives, bank accounts, future jobs on the line.

    Hard for anyone to find fault with what Paulie said.

    He didn't articulate it very well, but the sentiment of what he was saying is spot on.

    Paulie is spot on here.

    guys definitley earned my respect over the years. despite looking like a jersey shore clown in the fight with cotto,he took his beating like a man and i respect that,and as others have said,he calls it like it is and hes a welcome addition to the showtime broadcast team

    Malignaggi is the last guy to be complaining about bad decisions. Wasn't crying about the wrongs of boxing when he was losing and receiving gift decisions against guys like Ngoudjo and Cano. Even the second fight with Ndou was close enough to debate.

    I thought Paulie won both of those fights. That cano fight was a case of Cano finishing strong and everyone forgetting the rest of the fight. I really don't recall the Ndou or Ngoudjo fight being controversial.

    I initially didn't like Paulie because of his personal style. the shorts, the hair, etc. but he's an articulate commentator and he stands up for what he believes in, so he has my respect for sure.

    It is too bad his skills will never be recognized by the public because he has pillow hands. The guy probably would make a good coach.

    That's an interesting observation. He does seem to have a good head on his shoulders and a lot of knowledge, but many times fighters of his caliber are too arrogant to become good trainers. They are not content with being out of the spotlight.

    I know Paulie has had hand issues, but he REALLY can't punch. And sometimes he lands so clean I don't understand how it just doesn't even faze his opponent.

    He does have a good jab though.

    This is a very good point. People usually refer to him as being pillow fisted, Shoe shine punches etc, but the man can box.

    He employed a very effective strategy against Broner but the judges in that fight were more impressed with power shots...

    I thought Jersey Shore won the fight, but at no time was Broner ever hurt.

    I agree with a lot of what Paulie says here. Except criticism against coasting is valid. If only because judges are retards and giving away rounds in boxing can be a death sentence

    If Paulie had any semblance of punching power, he would be such a big star. He might be the lightest hitter I've ever seen though. Just no power in his shots whatsoever.

    He sure does. He's also got great ring intelligence, footwork, speed, defensive ability, chin, combination punching he just has NO POWER.

    That's what I find odd. As sharp a puncher as he is he just simply doesn't seem to have anything behind them.
