No Holds Barred: Lou DiBella on Malignaggi-Diaz Robbery, and What To Do About It 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with promoter Lou DiBella about the in-ring robbery of his fighter, Paulie Malignaggi, in his August 22 fight with Juan Diaz in Houston, Texas, which was telecast in the U.S. on HBO. Diaz, who is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, was awarded a unanimous decision victory.

As usual, DiBella is outspoken in his outrage over what happened this past Saturday night. He criticizes not only the judges in the Malignaggi-Diaz fight, but especially the attitude of the Texas commission and the HBO announcers to Malignaggi and this decision, and the structure of boxing itself where judges are still paid by promoters.

He also called for an online campaign for Paulie Malignaggi to have a rematch with Juan Diaz, in New York, with, of course, neutral officials. Here is a message which you post wherever you can:

We demand that Golden Boy and HBO agree to a rematch between Paulie Malignaggi and Juan Diaz, in New York, with neutral officials.
