FORMER two-division world champion Paulie Malignaggi will box Gabriel Bracero on the Leo Santa Cruz-Carl Frampton undercard at the Barclays Center on July 30.

“I fight for Brooklyn and I represent Brooklyn with everything I’ve got each time I step into the ring and on July 30 it will be no different,” Malignaggi, a former world titlist at 140 and 147lbs, declared.

“This fight is going to have two Brooklynites, finally meeting inside the ring, in a really exciting matchup,” said Bracero, who’s coming off of a one-punch knockout of Danny O’Connor in their rematch last October. “Growing up in Brooklyn is what has made me the man and the fighter that I am today.”
