Paulie Malignaggi just hocked a loogie at Artem Lobov during Bare Knuckle press conference (video)

I guess he has a thing for spitting on inanimate objects.

Nice to see Paulie Malignaggi keeping it classy in the build up to his Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) showdown against Artem Lobov, which headlines the promotion’s June 22 pay-per-view (PPV) event, recently relocated to Tampa, Florida.

The former IBF and WBA world boxing champion hocked a loogie toward the ex-UFC featherweight punching bag during today’s press conference in New York City, which was pretty much a continuation of their media day shit show back in April.

“Don’t point that finger at me or you’ll get smacked,” Malignaggi warned while resembling a shorter, more Italian Kung Lao. He actually looked more like Isaac from Children of the Corn, but nobody around here gets my dumb 80’s references, which is why I stick to dumb video game references.

Also on hand was former UFC middleweight Chris Leben, who will continue his combat sports career against Bellator MMA import, Brenan Ward. They came together at today’s presser in “The Empire State” as well, but zero snots were given.

In other stupid news, Game of Thrones ended on Sunday night and a bunch of nerds are angry.

That is all.
