Recently, ‘Magic Man’ interacted with SiriusXM Boxing and spoke about his upcoming exhibition against Cirey B, planned for October 2021.

You know, I can get myself into it. This guy Corey B got himself into a beef with me. And it’s kind of the new thing going around with this generation. They’re a pretty dumb weird generation. They’ll watch random YouTuber’s fights, they won’t watch top-level fighter fights.”  

“I’m just going to satisfy my own inclinations and just beat the cr*p out of this guy,” he said.

As soon as Corey B slapped Malignaggi, the latter immediately rushed towards him and grabbed him by his neck. Later, the security guards had to jump in to separate the duo.

Also, his approach to the game was aggressive and terrifying. And this might truly create tremendous problems for Corey B, who doesn’t hold any boxing experience.

However, a fight between these two will prove to be one solid entertainer and Malignaggi will look to claim a sensational win. But if Corey B somehow gets past the veteran, needless to say, it’ll go down in the history books as one of the biggest upsets.
