Danny Garcia Fight vs Paulie Malignaggi

Danny Garcia Fight vs Paulie Malignaggi

Saturday night, questions raised will be questions answered as Philadelphia native, Danny Garcia (30-0, 17KO's) takes on New Yorker Paulie Malignaggi (33-6, 7KO's) live from Brooklyn's Barclay Center. Boxing at Barclay's has become a very strong tradition, slowly but surely stealing the lust once owned by the prestigious Madison Square Garden right up the road. Similar to that reality, this bout could be a classic rendition of "out with the old, in with the new", as the young and rising Danny Garcia looks to oust one of the sports most thorough veterans.

For those who follow the sport closely, it's common knowledge that a Danny Garcia fight isn't a Danny Garcia fight unless we see his patented left hook, which few have been fortunate enough to walk away from. While few have escaped, Malignaggi will bring a level of experience to the ring that few in Garcia's past has ever truly matched. The only veteran close to this level of experience is Mexican warrior Erik Morlaes, who most felt was far too old to truly sustain the type of effort necessary to defeat a young stud like Garcia.

In this case, Malignaggi also has a bit of age to him, but some would argue that age in this case is less about the number, and more about an acronym, standing for 'A Greater Experience', as there are few veteran tactics that Malignaggi doesn't have in tow. Danny Garcia boxing will be on display from round one. Which normally entails a certain level of skill, a certain level of entertainment, and a hand full of thunderous powershots. How does Paulie Malignaggi plan to escape? Recent interviews point to the angle of good ole fashioned 'intelligent boxing'.

Staying within his gameplan, and out-thinking the young gun, forcing him into mistakes at the hand of several traps and a jab with intent to stab! This type of bout will be a tricky one for Garcia, but considering the limited punching power of Malignaggi, the confidence level of Garcia should be at an all-time high, giving him the flexibility to do more than we've seen in his last few fights where thunderous punchers like Argentina's Lucas Matthysse were able to keep him honest and mildly afraid.

Barclay Center boxing means a ton of Puerto Rican fight fans in the building, which slightly tilts the mental edge. The Latino fight fans will waive flags high, but Brooklyn native Paulie Malignaggi and his base of Brooklynites won't give away the momentum too easily! When the going gets tough and tough gets going, will this be a typical Danny Garcia fight, or will the combination of Malignaggi fans and the experience of Malignaggi's resume strength be enough to make a difference in the end?

When the smoke clears, fans can expect a high paced chess match, complete with solid entertainment and what should be a full 12rds. Despite Garcia's punching power, it's not likely that he'll stop Malignaggi, and it is likely that the seasoned veteran will be able press the younger Garcia harder than initially believed. Malignaggi will make a good account for himself and give Garcia fits in spurts, but when the smoke clears, it's almost inevitable that we'll see Garcia weather the storm. Danny Garcia vs Paulie Malignaggi may not be a Fight of the Year candidate, but it won't disappoint in the end.
