Former IBF junior welterweight champion Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi (30-4, 6 KOs) is excited that his world title challenge this Sunday against WBA welterweight champ Vyacheslav Senchenko (32-0, 21 KOs) is airing live in the United States on Integrated Sports Meida pay-per-view, live from Donbass Arena in Donetsk, Ukraine.
"I think it's great because American fans don't always get an opportunity like this to see fights held overseas," said Malignaggi, who arrived in Ukraine today from his training camp in Milan. "This is a high-level fight and not expensive pay-per-view. My fans will be able to watch.
"This is a good style match-up. Fans will see what Paulie Malignaggi has left and if Senchenko is for real. No matter which way you look at it, fans can get together as a group to watch, or order it individually at home. Boxing fans want to see world title fights and this one they'll see me beat Senchenko."
Senchenko vs. Malignaggi, presented by Union Boxing Promotion, is being distributed in the United States by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 1:00 PM/ET - 10:00 AM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DirectTV, Dish Network and Avail-TVNfor a suggested retail price of only $29.95.
