The trouble with boxing is that people actually pay attention to Paulie Malignaggi

Before anyone tries to cast Paulie Malignaggi as some sort of courageous truth-teller, it's helpful to remember that he once wore hair extensions into the ring. With predictable results. Who does that? I'll tell you who: someone who tirelessly works the showmanship angle in order to conceal his own big bag of nothing and who gets rewarded for it time and again with big name fights and televised bouts. Can we stop caring now?
