Malignaggi plans mid-world title fight tweet

Former light-welterweight world champion Paulie Malignaggi is set to tweet to his 21,000+ Twitter followers during rounds as the New Yorker attempts to become a two-weight world champion in Ukraine this weekend.

The 31 year-old, who has pronounced himself as the ‘Twitter King’ due to his frequent tweets and tendency to reply to his fans, told World Boxing News of his intention during a recent interview as he attempts to dethrone WBA 147lbs champion Vyacheslav Senchenko.

“If the Ukraine has Wi-Fi then yes, I may do it. If they don’t, then it will have to be on hold on until I get back to the United States,” he stated to WBN.

Malignaggi then backed up his statement to his followers on the social networking site by saying that he will definitely tweet if the Wi-Fi is working and with the fight being shown live in the US and the UK, his fans will be able to witness a boxing first at the Donbass Arena on Sunday.
