New Footage Shows McGregor Holding His Own vs. Malignaggi (Video)

Screen Shot 2017-08-25 at 9.12.15 AM

One of the unfortunate running plotlines of McGregor-Mayweather is that, uh, Conor McGregor doesn’t know how to box. That’s a pretty big hindrance in a boxing match, so when his sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi came out and said that he can’t fight, it was a blow to the promotional effort.

McGregor’s camp immediately denied Paulie’s criticism, and they even released some footage to prove it. And from the looks of this latest footage of the two squaring off, there’s even more reason to believe that McGregor may have a shot.

Granted it’s only fifteen seconds, but…from this brief clip (at 75% speed from the looks of it), McGregor seems to resemble…a boxer?

Ok. Never mind. That wasn’t long enough to determine anything. Back to the hype train, everyone!
