Malignaggi hasn’t given up on the hope of boxing match with Mcgregor. It’s almost two months on since Conor Mcgregor’s super-fight boxing match with Floy Mayweather, and former boxing champion Paulie is still calling out Notorious for beef up. Malignaggi was brought in as a sparring partner to help McGregor prepare for Mayweather boxing fight but later felt he has been represented unfairly as some of the images and videos of posted on McGregor’s social media accounts.
Since then Paulie Malignaggi ceasing fire, trash talk about McGregor and campaigning for a grudge fight.
Retired boxer revealed on Friday that his manager Al Haymon try to reach out to UFC president Dana White for negotiations over a potential boxing match.
“I know Al Haymon’s talking to Dana White,” Malignaggi said in an interview with FightHype.com. “I know they’re speaking, so if they want the fight they’ll make it.”
“Al Haymon makes anything he wants to happen, happen. Once I spoke to Al and Team Haymon, and they told me they wanted to make this fight, I knew that the only was this fight doesn’t happen is if [Conor] had absolutely no balls.”
“This fight will pay him more, this fight will get him more exposure, this fight is a bigger fight than anybody else he has. There’s no more Mayweather fight. This fight is the biggest fight there is. So once they told me that, I knew the only way this doesn’t happen is if this guy has absolutely no balls. Which wouldn’t surprise me because he has no balls. But the way they’re going to present it to him, it’s going to be presented in a way where he really shouldn’t turn it down.”
It happens if he wants it. I have spoken to my team, like Mayweather I am with Al Haymon. I know Haymon has reached out to Dana White. https://t.co/oHSKMi1PqE
