The Perfect Comeback Fight For Manny Pacquiao Is Paulie Malignaggi

By Freddy Fresco

If Manny Pacquiao decides to comeback to boxing, I think the perfect opponent for him would be loudmouth Paulie Malignaggi. It’s the best fight to make to see where Pacquiao is at after his shoulder surgery, because Paulie hates Pacquiao with a passion and Manny needs someone like that to bring back the fire and make him want to hurt someone again.

When Floyd Mayweather finally accepted the fight with Pacquiao, everyone thought he would do what he did on Ustream and social media for years, which was talk trash to Pacquiao and insult him to his face. The opposite happened and Floyd took the high road and did nothing but praise Manny and remained silent during stare downs. I believe Floyd did this because he didn’t want to give Pacquiao any extra motivation to bring back the destroyer, so he used a bit of psychological tactics by befriending and respecting Pacquiao before the fight so Pacquiao would go easy on him, and it worked.

Malignaggi will not hold his tongue, he will actually talk trash and insult Manny to his face, something we have yet to see him experience from his previous opponents. This would be new territory for Pacquiao, we will get to see how he handles someone who gets in his face and constantly insults him and his accomplishments.

A Pacquiao vs. Malignaggi fight would be filled with drama, the build up and hype would spark some interest to make it a decent Pay-Per-View event, plus the fans would finally get to see if Malignaggi gets his comeuppance for talking all that trash about Manny for years.

    Good idea but Paulie does not deserve the huge pay to be Manny’s punching bag. It can be done in the Philippines.

    • wisesteve

      let Malinaggi beat a contender first, everytime he fought a decent fighter he lost

      • David Pollack

        Lets not forget paulie did beat the baby bull. That guy was a fierce competitor

  • Vagina Fever

    Definitely agree on this. Even before the chris algieri fight, I dream of Manny fighting the loud mouth malignaggi. Malignaggi is one of those overrated boxers, just like hatton. Hopefully they’ll hit the bullseye on making the fight with malignaggi. Only way to shut his mouth, as well as khan.

    • tutoy_bato

      Pacquiao should fight both Malinaggi and Amir. lets see what they can do.

    • David Pollack

      I totally agree with you. I wold love to see him fight malignaggi. And kahn,just to shut them up. He has much bigger ish. To fry right now though,and no,im not talking about a rematch with gayweather,he will just run again. Id love to see him fight someone like GGG,but in reality,im pretty sure he will drop down to 140 and go out with a bang,cleaning out that division,with a few more ko’s. Garcia,provod,Machine,maybe even loud mouth broner,who is a natural 140 pound fighter.

  • gabriel tomista

    Ok let give change Paulie to fight so that he can see what he want.

    • tutoy_bato

      Knock out and payday.

  • ReAgan CayEtano

    Magicman has no magic. Only a LOUD MOUTH trying to get big fights. Who’s next for Pacman? We don’t know. A rematch with Money or retirement maybe. He’s done and he’s one of HOF. #justsayin

  • CebuanongtagaTuguegarao

    I doubt if Manny is amenable to a Paulie fight.The Pacman is too gentleman enough to fight a woman.

    • tutoy_bato

      If theres enough money on the table even if pacquiao will easily knocked out Paulie. They will stage this fight no matter what people say. hahhaha

      • Carlo Babyama Miguel

        Yah tutoy ung kapatid mo kinantot ko

        • tutoy_bato

          Ahh ok. e di wow.

  • LOLOBY

    yeah! bring the loudmouth in the ring with the Pac….let that pussy run like pussy weather.. once he taste the left….

    • tutoy_bato

      Run like pussy weather. talaga lang ha? patawa ka ba. hahaha bitter talo kasi idol mo. wala sya sa kalingkingan ni Floyd yan ang totoo.

  • Cynthia Herron

    I agree. Manny should fight Paulie. Manny should go back to fighting C-level fighters like Paulie, Brandon Rios and Chris Algieri and stay away from actual top level competition like Floyd Mayweather who made Manny look like the overrated chump he is, and Marquez who Manny was in life and death struggles against and who knocked Pacquiao’s ass out….stay with those C-level fighters Manny and keep fooling your fans into thinking you are actually top level….

    • Alvin Blanco Sunga

      Are you Paulie?

      • Cynthia Herron

        Nope, I’m Cynthia.

        • Alvin Blanco Sunga

          Sorry, cause you talked to much like a parot Paulie too

      • tutoy_bato

        yah stupid english speaking pacquiao will never beat your’e no read and write mayweather. hahaha

    • Dick hertz

      he beat the shit out of your boy gayweather . compubox was rigged announcers were bought and las vegas would lose a ton of money if Floyd wouldn’t have won the fight its bullshit! the ref never gave point deductions and allowed the bull to go on and Floyd ran like he was a Kenyan in the boston marathon not to mention he tied manny up like he was arresting him because of stealing something. truthfully , most people that look at it objectively are honest about it but for some reason black americans mostly just can not be honest. They just stick up for the black guy instead of looking at the situation and being honest about things. I guess he lost Bradley 1 also , right? it is what it is and we all have opinions but lets at least call it by how we really feel not because of skin color. he is saying that hes better than ali , get the fuck out of here. also, Marciano never ran like a pussy willow. you should be embarrassed but instead your applauding this coward. he was my favorite fighter when he was an amateur , great fighter but hes a cheat with great skills and has lost a few different times and that is ok but show respect and call it how it is.

      • Cynthia Herron

        yawn..yes yes you’re right…compubox was rigged (except when their results are in Manny’s favor), everyone in Vegas was bought (except when Manny wins), and it’s Mayweathers fault for mistaking it for a boxing match instead a streetfight where two idiots stand in front of each other and whale away at each other….lol…it must be tough for you to have witnessed your hero Manny getting exposed as the overrated chump that he is….but don’t worry, with the right amount of therapy you will get over it….lol….

        • tutoy_bato

          I agree with you Cynthia, let this Casual Boxing Fans (Manny Pacquiao fans only) cried and whine cause their idol looks like a fool Fighting Floyd.

          • David Pollack

            Floyd is average,he doesn’t do anything in the ring that makes him look great,except run like a pussy. He has never fought any A level fighter in their prime. ODLH,Cotto,Mosely,and now Manny. And lets not forget that he flat out ducked Paul Williams and Margarito. He has also fought tons of c level fighters that fall right back into obscurity after losing to him,which is why he fights them anyway.And to make matters even worse, he fights junior welterweights instead of fighting the superior talent in his own division,because he is a pussy. He is most certainly going to fight Amir Kahn next,which is also a big joke. Kahn is a joke. Mayweather needs to man up and fight GGG at 160. Oscar fought for the title at 160,and btw almost won it. Manny should stay away from a rematch with Floyd,because he will just run again. Manny is the greatest pure fighter ever,and he shouldnt be fighting guys that run all night. There are only rwo fighters i hate watching,rigo and floyd,boring as hell.

            • tutoy_bato

              Average like he beat Diego corrales when he is undefeated and the best fighter at that time. And who else Zab Judah, Carlos Baldomir do i need to iterate all. Oscar dela hoya, Hatton, Cotto, Mosley are all in their winning matches when Floyd fought them. What about your idol Pacquiao. Fought ODH after Floyd beat him and weight drained him. Hatton after Floyd exposed his chin. Miguel Cotto after draining him then wished to win the welterweight belt. Margarito after cheating his weight (not even on the Light Middleweight limit but won the title) how is that. Stop whinning. sometimes frustration results to idiotic comments

            • tutoy_bato

              What about pacquiao your idol. Rios and Algieri? fighting welterweights with superior talent. Are you kidding? hahaha

            • Cynthia Herron

              Manny is the best pure fighter ever??? Bwaaaahaaaaahaaaa…David Pollack I have to thank you for giving me the best laugh I have had in a long time….LOL!!!!!

            • tutoy_bato

              Manny the catchweight, drainer king is the greatest? are you serious. cynthia ill join your laughter. this idiot pactard is making me sick

        • Dick hertz

          Let me guess Cynthia , your black and you like floyd right? Wow, how the hell did I guess that one?

        • Dick hertz

          cindy while you are yawning why don’t you take something else in your mouth? oops sorry , the whole neighborhood beat me to it. cindy it is a boxing match my liitle april flower and im all for hit and move and tie up when you have to but you no damn well that was total bull mayweather is a queer and ran like he stole something . I mean he wouldn’t fight at all and then when he was finally cornered after running 2:30 of the round then he would just fucking grab and not let go but I can see that you already know that and that you are just not caring and therefore acting like that shit was ok and its not cheating. anyone else would have been forced to fight or points deducted. yaaaaawwwwn!!! another bias black person for mayweather probably huh? pacquiao still outpointed him and won with one arm. good champion cindy!

        • Dick hertz

          hey cindy, shove it up your stink box you pig!

      • tutoy_bato

        So your saying that compubox is lying also during pacquiao marquez 3? hahaha what an idiot excuse

        • Dick hertz

          Your mothers an idiot. You are so dumb to be believe Compu box is actually right and not bullshit. I guess pacquiao loss to bradley in the 1st fight too right? Wackadoo. Hey , do u believe floyd actually doesn’t take it up the ass too ?

          • tutoy_bato

            So you mean compubox is wrong on Pacquiao marquez 3? what can you say about that?

            • Carlo Babyama Miguel

              kapatid mo tutoy kinantot ko

        • Dick hertz

          absolutely im saying that and im saying that mayweather had the judges and the announcers in his pocket . you see, all of them and thousands more people and that’s including the whole city of las vegas will lose billions if mayweather loses that fight. a person like you must not be able to look through the obvious and then you just start shouting yeah mayweather is the man . mayweather is a wife beating queer and his followers are shallow fags that take it up the ass. are you a mayweather fan??

          • tutoy_bato

            Im not mayweather fan. Im not even a pacquiao fan. Im a fan of real boxing. satisfied. And the truth is your idol pacquiao will never beat Floyd mayweather.

            • Dick hertz

              why don’t you be a fan of reality. boxing is the most corrupt sport and if you are to dumb to know the economics and politics not to mention and open eye to the rotten and corrupt things then , what can I tell you ? I just don’t agree and I think that’s being dumb and na├»ve on your part.

              • tutoy_bato

                so you mean with all of pacquiao wins are not corrupt? because you seem to defend him but you keep on saying boxing is corrupt?

        • Dick hertz

          no, im saying that at the choices of people and organizations being corrupt this happens and you are fucking too dumb to no the diiference . lol !

    • Dick hertz

      Hey good news you cunt ! Floyd is trying to become the only midget cop in lasvegas . They saw how he grabs everyone and takes their hands behind their backs and calls it boxing and they also saw that he can run like a Kenyan in case there is a public riot! He would be the cop you see looting with the crowds and punching every woman that tried to grab a toaster oven before him. lol! Wooo! Yeah!! Up your ass!!! Baby! Floyd is a queer!!

  • cupofjoe

    No way in hell does Pauletta deserve to be on
    the same ring with Pacman! He’s a class D
    boxer, running and boring fighter as you know who!

  • mike ong

    paulie vs. ronda a good idea..=)

  • Dick hertz

    SAYS WHO Paulie? pac will ko him quickly . malignaggi just wants a pay day

  • Adam Burmeister

    Paulie will be running like Floyd! Algieri, Rios, Bradley, Provokov, Madaina, Marquez will kick Paulies butt! Khan kicked Paulies butt with their last fights.

    • tutoy_bato

      Do not compare Floyd with Paulie, They are not on the same level. Pacquaio will never beat Floyd even if they fight 10 times. Paulie v.s Pacquiao, Paulie will get knock out for sure.

  • Hayaa

    Loloby,ReAgan CayEtano, Adam Burmeister, Dick hertz,ecupofjoe, All of you sound just like Paulie. STFU.

  • Ramon Antolin

    Paulie has no business to be in the ring with Manny! He will be KO’d mercilessly because of his LOUD MOUTH! It will not be competitive so don’t think about it!

  • Bob

    No, the absolute worst thing Pacquiao can do is to REWARD Malignaggi with a million dollar paycheck. Let Malignaggi hate and stay broke.

  • BD Jr

    Malignaggi works for Showtime while Pacquiao fights for HBO. Although Showtime & HBO worked jointly together for the Tyson vs Lewis fight and Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight, those were big fights but still hard to make. Pacquiao vs Malginaggi will not be a mega event so I doubt the 2 networks will get together and make this fight happen.

    • tutoy_bato

      Absolutely right. Cause Malinaggi is a joke.

  • Glen

    That was the whole point of his trash talk, to get a big fight and big payday even if doesn’t deserved it. Paullie is never at Pacquiao’s league. He can talk all he want. Only fools would not know that all he is, is a nothing but a hater.

    • Otrebla Silecar

      Agree, let Him dream of wanting to fight Pacquiao till He dies. Bring Amir Kingkong Khan, it will be an easy and marketable fight for Pacman. eager to see how faster He run than Floydie.

      • tutoy_bato

        The truth is Pacquiao should only be fighting this guys Khan and Malinaggi for him to look good again. Instead of making excuses from his last fight. “I think I won the fight” Pathetic.

        • David Pollack

          Im a huge pac fan,and it sucked having to watch him chase gayweather around all night. And btw,Manny is the greatest. Pure fighter of all time. Floyd is a boxer,big difference,not an ounce of fighter in him. The only logical thing for floyd to do now is fight Amir Kahn,who by the way is another b level fighter,no way in hell will he have the balls to fight GGG at 160. GGG will kill him,he hits way too hard. I wouldnt be surprised if Manny fought GGG next,call me crazy,but he DID kick the shit out of margarito,who weighed 163.

          • tutoy_bato

            Manny fought GGG you serious? hahaha if someone who will give GGG a beating then your idol pacquiao will fought him. keep dreaming. hahaha

          • tutoy_bato

            hahaha comparing margarito to GGG is stupid. know the fighters first before running your mouth again

            • David Pollack

              I wasnt trying to compare margarito to ggg u idiot. I was just saying pac fought a way bigger man and if mayweather is tbe like he says he should fight ggg next,not kahn. Kahn can run his mouth all he wants,but a bout with gayweather will be one big hugfest. Canelo-cotto is going to go head to head with mayweather in september. If he has any chance of competing with that fight,which in my opinion he doesnt anyway,he needs to fight ggg. In mannys case,he doesmt need a comeback fight. He can still beat anyone from 154 and down,so it doesnt matter who he is matched with,it will be action packed,because he is a fighter who isnt afraid to lose. And there isnt anyone that can stand and go toe to toe with him

              • tutoy_bato

                You mean Pacquiao Rios fight? Manny stand toe to toe. hahaha did you watch the fight? watch it first before running your mouth.

                • David Pollack

                  U r such an idiot. Manny goes toe to toe with everyone,he never runs,thats exactly what makes him so appealing to so many fans. He is still the man to beat in boxing,he isn’t going anywhere yet. My guess is he will drop down to 140 and fight danny garcia next who he will kill,he doesnt need a tune up fight,but then again,he has nothing else to prove,so if i were him,id fight paulie,beat the crap out of him in two rounds or less shut him up and retire

              • tutoy_bato

                Anyways just keep on hugging loser pacquiao. because you cannot change the whole thing. from Marquez knockout to Mayweather loss. hahaha. Its free to defend your idol. I’ll just stop replying and just read your stupid excuses. hahaha cause you cannot change anything. Your idol was given a day to prove his words But failed. hahaha

                • David Pollack

                  Wow,all these casual boxing fans thinking they know something….tutoy,please stop,go back to watching mmgay or whatever u watched before watching the maypac fight,because u obviously dont know shit about boxing. Im not just a pac fan,i watch just about every boxing match thats aired,i even attend quite a few of them. Ive watched everyone from rjj,jcc,ali,and even pac live. And btw im not trying to defend pac,i just know that the fight was a draw,manny is an incredible talent,the only other fighter that i would compare to him in his prime is rjj.

          • Glen

            I wouldn’t pay to watch any Floyd’s fight regardless who he would fight. It will be a boring fight.

        • David Pollack

          Neither fighter won,maypac was a draw

  • Anthony Loman

    Paulie hates Pac man or he simply understands the sport and made an accurate prediction?

  • Carl Allen

    nothing annoys me more than a “Biased Blogger” , as I read word4word it pretty much shows you are anti-mayweather lmao , this guy basically said mayweather held back on trash talking so pacquiao would go easy on him, that’s amusing

    • David Pollack

      He held back on trash talking because he was scared to death of him,and still is. He ran the entire fight. Whenever manny did hit him he hurt him. Gayweather is a boxer/coward who cherrypicks his opponents in order to protect his record. Mayweather is boring and has never been in an exciting fight. Glad when he is gone. Im confident manny will fight for at least two more years,as he cann still beat anyone from 154 and down,and not just beat them,but dominate them.

  • Cynthia Herron

    This board is hilarious….it has so many delusional Pacquiao fans on it that it provides endless entertainment watching them come up with ridiculous excuses for his loss and attack anyone who disagrees with them with the lamest most overused racial attacks or of course the last resort of morons everywhere…calling anyone who disagrees with them gay…LOL….what a bunch of pathetic jokes….keep hanging in there until Manny retires, then go find someone else to trick you into worshipping them….lol…smh….

    • David Pollack

      Manny did his best to catch the chicken,no excuses. Anyone who expected anything different from maywaether is just plain dumb. Thats how he fights all the time,he doesnt take chances. As for manny,he has nothimg to be ashmed of. He is still the only 8 division champion in history,and that wont be matched for a very long time,if ever.

  • hardvibes C

    No it’s not. Nobody gives a shit about that trash talking moron malignaggi.
