Conor McGregor’s run as a boxer did not go too well for him, as he lost to the unbeaten Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. However, it looks like McGregor is not done exploring the boxing world. Reports have emerged that McGregor is looking for a fight with Paulie Malignaggi in a boxing super-fight.
Malignaggi and McGregor have a shared history, which did not end too well for them. Malignaggi was one of the sparring partner for McGregor ahead of his fight against Mayweather. However, once the ‘Notorious One’ left the training camp videos came out where he got the better of Malignaggi. Both the photos and videos saw McGregor come out on top in their sessions together.
Naturally, the boxer did not take it well and challenged McGregor to release the whole videos to show what ‘really’ happened. The two have been at each other’s throats for a while.
