An Open Letter To Robert
“The Disappearing Ghost” Guerrero
from Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi
For the past 3 months, you and your team have attempted to
trick the media and boxing public into believing that you were on a
short list to fight the best fighter in the world, Floyd Mayweather.
You also called out every Golden Boy Promotions boxer you could between
135 to 147 pounds, proclaiming your health after shoulder surgery and
your readiness to step into the ring in a big fight on May 5th. Every
time you had a big bowel movement, your publicist sent an email blast
Two days ago, you and I were offered to fight each other on
May 5th as an important supporting pay-per-view bout on the Mayweather
vs. Cotto blockbuster PPV. I am sure you will agree that Mayweather vs.
Cotto will be the biggest pay-per-view show of the year and on the
biggest platform imaginable at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and on HBO
PPV. Millions of boxing fans will have the opportunity to finally see
if you can back up your recent widespread chatter on the internet.
Robert, I accepted the challenge to fight you within 2 hours
of being offered the fight. But I have been informed by our promoter,
Golden Boy Promotions, that you have categorically refused to fight me.
This news was absolutely shocking to me because I have seen you
transform yourself from a cute, soft spoken, California kid to well,
someone like me. I give you props for trying to wake up the old boxing
farts with sound bites like telling Mayweather to “Step Up Punk” or
telling Victor Ortiz 3 days ago that “if you’re really a true warrior,
you’ll step in the ring with me.” But take it from an older and wiser
Magic Man that has never needed to hide behind a publicist and has
always backed up his words by stepping into the ring with the best
fighters in the world, if you start talking the way you have been
talking, you better be ready to accept whatever challenges come your
Robert, I know that you and your team have been present in
the Arena for my past three fights and you have seen how good I have
looked in dismantling my opponents. And maybe your advisors think that
all the garlic in Gilroy won’t protect you should we fight on May 5th.
But you need to find the Mexican warrior within yourself and back up
your hot air by stepping into the ring on the day of pride and heritage
for your people, Cinco De Mayo. Because if you think you deserve to
fight the elite boxers in this world, you need to earn it with more than
just a trigger happy publicist. You are a paper Champion that has
never fought anyone in the Top 100 of boxing. Beating a geriatric Joel
Casamayor or the Australian punching bag that is Michael Katsidis does
not earn you the right to call out Floyd Mayweather, Amir Khan, and
Victor Ortiz. Beating me on May 5th might get you one step closer to
So come on, Robert. Don’t become a big joke with the boxing
world. Listen to your own words and step up punk. If you’re really a
true warrior, and not just some internet loud mouth, you’ll step in the
ring with me on May 5th. What are you afraid of? Coming off shoulder
surgery? I have had more surgery on my hands than an aging Beverly Hills
housewife. Are you for real or are you truly just a ghost with a good
