Malignaggi was scheduled to fight this week on the Amir Khan vs. Chris Algieri card @ Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He suffered an eye injury during training forcing him to withdraw from the bout. In his last fight April 2014 he was knockout by Shawn Porter. He plans on returing to the ring this Fall against a opponent to be names. Malignaggi hopes its a bigger name then Danny O’Connor who he was suppose to fight but is not opposed to fighting O’Connor when he returns. He is going to let his eye heal for a few weeks and get surgery to fix bone spurs in his elbow.
