CHICAGO, December 12, 2009 – The clamor of an estimated 4,600 fans at the UIC Pavilion was so loud tonight that one couldn’t hear the winner’s post-fight interview with HBO’s Max Kellerman.  Even in the face of a decisive points win, the volatile chemistry generated in the wake of the rematch between Paulie Malignaggi and NABO Light Welterweight champion Juan Diaz took on a life of its own.  It was as if the crowd did not want this “magic” night to end.
