Paulie Malignaggi Says Conor McGregor Knows He Can't Beat Him In Fight

Or you could watch Mayweather-McGregor for 4 cents less - you can thank us later for that hookup. Is he actually capable of beating Floyd Mayweather inside a 12-round boxing match? Technically, that's the official pricetag, but Apple restrictions say every cost must end in a "9", TheWrap was told.

The photograph (above) was published on Twitter by McGregor photographer Dave Fogarty on August 4 with a caption "there (sic) no conspiracy, there (sic) no photoshop just pure unadulterated power". Additionally Fathom Events will air the action in some movie theaters, bars and restaurants.

Do you think Conor McGregor could benefit from some rounds with Vasyl Lomachenko? To ask McGregor to comprehend distance and spacing in boxing against an average opponent is one thing, but to ask him to do it against one of the greatest defensive boxers of all-time is a tall order.

"This guy is one of the biggest dirtbags I've ever met in my life - bar none", Malignaggi said on The MMA Hour MOnday.

When Malignaggi arrive he was surprised to see Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White and McGregor's manager, Audie Attar, at the gym and he believed that they were invited because McGregor thought he was going to dominate. Even if McGregor was doing well against Malignaggi in sparring, it's going to be vastly different from doing well against Mayweather. "I was hoping that because I had came with those intentions". I was angry but I knew I'd come prepared.

"He looks at me and he gives me this smirk, laughs at me and he starts walking away from me".

These are some of the key points that keep coming up that can help the uninitiated see into the mindset of the boxing community at large approaching what will nearly certainly be the year's biggest fight. I want to say things that make you look good.

Malignaggi confirmed that he did hit the canvas during their second encounter but only after being pushed by McGregor - something that didn't go down well at all.

'A fighter like Andre Berto isn't even supposed to go the distance with Floyd Mayweather, but remember, I was 38.

"Then as we got to round six, he started fading a little bit and that's when I really tried to dig in there and that's when I said you know what I'm going to stay in here, I got a point to make tonight". It's unfortunate that McGregor-Malignaggi couldn't happen before the Mayweather fight.
