Emotional Malignaggi talks retirement

Said Paulie Malignaggi after his KO loss to Danny Garcia: "I felt like if I didn't come up with a big performance tonight, that it would be my last fight. ... I was thinking 'Don't give in. This is your last night if you give in.'" Will he fight again? "Probably not. ... if it ends in Brooklyn tonight, at least I ended it at home."
