The two have traded insults for a while now, including some great videos where Malignaggi was swimming in Italy and cutting a Joe Pesci-esque tirade, but HBO doesn't have a slot for that fight this year. Malignaggi has also ruled out the following names: Kell Brook, Mike Jones, Timothy Bradley, and Andriy Kotelnik. He also made a joke about fighting Evander Holyfield, which some people took seriously.
