Paulie Malignaggi claims he’s done fighting in the wake of his unanimous decision loss to Artem Lobov at the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) pay-per-view (PPV) event last weekend in Tampa, Florida (highlights), which works out for all parties involved, since Florida State Boxing Commission (FSBC) suspended him indefinitely.
He’s not the only one.
UFC veteran Chris Leben was also sidelined until further notice, thanks to injuries “The Crippler” sustained against late replacement, Dakota Cochrane, in the co-main event. Julian Lane and Joe Riggs drew indefinite timeouts following their performances, as well.
Here is the complete list of medical suspensions from FSBC (via MMA Fighting):
Paulie Malignaggi — indefinite suspension
Chris Leben — indefinite suspension
Julian Lane — indefinite suspension
Joe Riggs — indefinite suspension
Jamie Campbell — 60-day suspension
Elvin Brito — 60-day suspension
Jerad Hayes — 60-day suspension
Andrew Lipton — 60-day suspension
