Paulie Malignaggi Says Negotiations Are Underway For Fight Against Conor McGregor
Former two-weight world champion Paulie Malignaggi is ready to settle his beef with Conor McGregor and according to him, his representatives are in talks with the MMA Lightweight Champ for a boxing match.
“Malignaggi, who has called for McGregor to release the full footage of the spar, claims talks are now underway between his advisor Al Haymon and UFC president Dana White about a future showdown.
“I know Al Haymon’s talking to Dana White. If they want the fight, they’ll make it,” Malignaggi told FightHype.
“I don’t need to do all of that because Al Haymon makes anything he wants happen, happen. The only way it doesn’t happen if this guy doesn’t have any balls.
“This fight will pay him more, this fight will get him more exposure – this fight is a bigger fight than anything else he has. There’s no more Mayweather fight, this is the biggest fight there is.”
No word on if McGregor is actually down to do this, but I’m guessing if the money is right, he’ll be stepping in that boxing ring once again.
