Re: Shawn Porter is a bad man
For me, the thing about last night's win was that I can't even contribute some of it to Paulie's age or ring wear. I have a feeling that this would have been the outcome if they have faced each other at any time during malignaggi's career. Based on style and paulies lack of pop to keep Porter honest. That wasn't a fight, it was a mugging. Credit to malignaggi for trying to stand in there, then going out on his shield.
They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.
