Lobov believes Malignaggi’s ‘tough’ days are way behind him,  back when he was a young upcoming fighter. He believes Malignaggi no longer has the fire to last long in their fight. (via Twitter):

Their rivalry extends back to 2016 when Lobov’s training partner, double champ ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor was preparing for his boxing superfight against legend Floyd Mayweather. Malignaggi flew all the way to Straight Blast Gym in Dublin, Ireland to help McGregor in his preparation. McGregor’s crew however leaked a footage of Malignaggi getting dropped by McGregor. The footage caught fire across the combat community and that obviously did not go well with Malignaggi. Both parties have been exchanging some bad blood ever since.
