One of the highlights from Tyson Fury's Twitter. He's also taken mean-spirited shots at Kermit Cintron and Audley Harrison, called Derek Chisora a "man-lover," praised Danny Williams, and gotten into a brief Twitter battle with Andre Dirrell, who actually might not know who Tyson Fury is. Fury called Dirrell a ballerina and an actor.
"I believe I’m the faster fighter. If I get hit on chin, I’m not going to wobble. If Amir Khan starts wobbling, I hope they have a pillow for him in the corner, because he’s going to sleep. I’m going to enjoy sinking my punches into Khan. Some fights are just business, but not this one. I’m going to enjoy every punch I land." --Paulie Malignaggi (27-3, 5 KO) (Photo by Chris Hutty - Hoganphotos/Golden Boy Promotions)
Paulie Malignaggi put "Amir Con" shirts for sale on his website. I have a feeling these ones might continue to sell well long after the fight is over. They're available for purchase at Official Malignaggi.com
WBA junior welterweight titlist Amir Khan and Paulie Malignaggi got together for a press conference in London. The two meet on May 15 in New York. Oscar de la Hoya called the matchup the "Fight of the Year." In other news, Oscar de la Hoya is insane.
