American or Italian?

Hatton beats Malignaggi with 11th round TKO

In the second round, a big right to the jaw buckled Malignaggi’s legs and caused the American to cling on, while another hook in the fourth had the same effect.

Paulie Malignaggi had a huge Italian flag in his corner which stuck out like a sore thumb on TV, he also had the Italian flag sewn on his hood, yet he is called an American in your article.. Very Confusing !!

I don’t think it’s that confusing. He was born in Brooklyn and still lives there, and while he does have dual citizenship, it is accurate to call him an American: GBU Editor.
