Amir Khan could not miss Paulie Malignaggi on Saturday night. Before the match, I could not pick a decisive winner. Malignaggi has the ring experience and Khan is being trained by Freddie Roach.
From the first round Amir Khan had the fight. Paulie stood right in front of him and was an easy target. Amir showed that he had some power behind his punches and was hurting Paulie. If Malignaggi boxed instead of swinging for the fences, possibly it could of been more competitive.
At the end, Amir Khan retains his 140 lbs title stopping Paulie in round 11. A much deserved TKO victory. This win will launch Amir to bigger name opponents.
