Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, we're going inside the boxing ring with welterweight Paulie Malignaggi as he prepares for his fight on Saturday.

Malignaggi (29-4, 6 KO) takes on Orlando Lora (28-1-1, 19 KO) as part of the undercard for the Bernard Hopkins-Chad Dawson title fight. The event will be live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on HBO PPV.

Malignaggi is coming off of two straight wins, both coming at welterweight, following his move up from light welterweight. His first fight as a welterweight was a win over Michael Lozada in December 2010 when he was also fighting on a Hopkins undercard. It was Hopkins' first fight against Jean Pascal, whom he fought to a draw.
