BROOKLYN, NY — Paulie Malignaggi and Danny Jacobs participated in a joint media workout yesterday at Gleason’s Gym to promote Golden Boy’s October 20 quadruple-header at the Barclays Center.
Malignaggi will be defending his newly won WBA welterweight title against Pablo Cesar Cano. Danny Jacobs, who’s returning to the ring after beating cancer tumors and temporary paralysis, takes on Josh Luteran.
The card will air on Showtime at 8 p.m. ET.
To have gone through what I’ve gone through in the past year and a half , to have this opportunity and attention, to have people say I appreciate you, it’s an amazing feeling.
To have this amazing Barclays card on October 20, it’s going to be historical.
The doctors told me I would never be able to box again. It was the crazy part of me that wanted to do what the doctors told me I couldn’t do.
The whole motivation was not just to defend a world title but to pu on a show for Brooklyn.
I’m here to win and look spectacular and really make a statement.
I expect Brooklyn to be in the house, that’s for sure.”
