You Won’t Believe What This Fighter Is Wearing

Paulie Malignaggi is a smart man who has a cushy full-time job waiting for him at Showtime once his boxing career is over.

The Magic Man has mastered the art of showbiz and completely stole the show today in Washington D.C. with his weigh-in attire.

His package shielded only by what I’d call an elephant mask, Paulie Malignaggi stepped before the cameras and weighed in at 146 lbs for his title challenge Saturday night.

Malignaggi has never been shy about baring it all. Last year he and rival Adrien Broner spent the entirety of their promotion arguing about a woman named Jessica who they both claimed to have beded.

It’s that kind of class that keep professional boxing in the headlines.

The photo of Paulie Malignaggi with only an elephant covering his junk brought some laughter to an otherwise blase event.

Paulie doubles as an excellent color analyst for Showtime Championship Boxing. As a fighter he’s known for his incredibly light punching power, so in essence, he’s making up for it in other ways. No doubt Paulie Malignaggi has learned how to draw attention to himself over a 13 year career as a feather fisted boxer.
