Broner eyes KO or beating of Malignaggi
By Michael Woods
Adrien Broner's trainer, Mike Stafford, predicted his kid would stop Paul Malignaggi in the main event Saturday night at Barclays Center no later than Round 6, but Broner left some wiggle room for himself during a Tuesday news appearance at Gleason's Gym for the show promoted by Golden Boy.
"We shall see," said Broner, who, like his role model, Floyd Mayweather, mixes mostly brash pronouncements of his superiority with the occasional curveball of humility or contradiction from a previously espoused take.
"I might knock Paulie out, or maybe I beat the s--- out of him."
