Brooklyn-born boxer [Paulie Malignaggi] (pronounced Mal-in-ya-gee), a.k.a “The Magic Man,” [defeated Lovemore N’dou](1. http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/scorecard/othernews.asp?articleID=204475) to win the IBF Junior Welterweight Championship on Saturday night in Connecticut. Viewers who mourned Tony Soprano’s exit from the airwaves 10 days ago now have a new HBO-based Sicilian to cheer for with the same penchant for beating people’s faces in. Coincidentally, a [documentary](http://www.saddoboxing.com/5468-boxing-film-magic-man-receives-prestigious.html) chronicling the charismatic fighter’s rise to stardom, titled “The Magic Man,” just premiered at the [Hoboken International Film Festival](http://www.filmfestivalnj.com/) two weeks ago and won the festival’s Audience Award. Just what New York needs: another prima donna with an ego bigger than Madison Square Garden.
