Guido Brooklynite and former junior welterweight titlist Paul “The Magic Man” Malignaggi has decided to part ways with his long-time promoter, Lou DiBella.

“It was a good run,” said Malignaggi of his partnership with DiBella, a graduate of Tufts University and Harvard Law School. “There were some things we disagreed on, so it’s probably better to part amicably so the relationship remains. If we remained together, we’d probably end up hating each other and neither of us wanted that.”

The bulk of fight fans understandably consider Malignaggi (27-4, five KOs) to be a screaming hemorrhoid with zero knockout power whatsoever.

Sadly, “The Magic Man” is indeed a pain inside the anal sphincter who provides little excitement when scrapping in the squared circle.

Nevertheless, Malignaggi is a man who has taken on all competitors and it is unjust for fight fans to loathe him strictly for his flamboyant and annoying style inside and outside of the ring.

In reality, despite his feathery fists and Goldust-like demeanor, the sport of boxing would be far better if more Paulie Malignaggis existed.
