Expect the Paulie Malignaggi vs Conor McGregor fight soon

Actually, there are matches that when we hear about them, we leap with joy. People who are real
boxing enthusiasts will view any fight that will happen between Conor McGregor and any other big
name from now on as something big. Yes, say whatever you like about him, Floyd Mayweather is a
boxing legend per excellence.

When he agreed on that money fight between against Conor McGregor of the MMA, he was
helping the image of McGregor. There are obviously many people who have not heard the name
McGregor in life before. But they got to hear about him, Google him, and know more about him
before the fight between him and Mayweather.
Mayweather is a cult hero and has a very huge following across the globe. He popularized

McGregor with that fight, and now people wants to know everything about McGregor. That alone
will be a very huge boost to the fight we may be witnessing next. Yes, many people may have been
asking themselves about the young man. In fact, people who watched him first on the day of the
fight against Mayweather will like to watch him again, and this may be the chance for them to do
so. This time, it will be against an opponent who will not be a complete favorite as Mayweather

Paulie Malignaggi is his name, and he has come out to say that his people are in talks with
McGregor’s people about a possible fight soon. He has been the World Champion twice and is now
looking towards fighting the MMA star. So, who will people that bet boxing games favor to win the
match between them.

It would be recalled that while McGregor was preparing for the fight between him and Mayweather,
he had to bring in Malignaggi for sparing duties. But while this was on, a row ensued between
them. This row was so strong that Malignaggi had to cut the exercise short and leave the camp. At
the end of the day, the images that surfaced from the row revealed where Malignaggi was hitting the
canvas. After the events and the media got to know about it, Malignaggi came out to call on

McGregor to release the full footage of everything that happened during the row.

While many people have been waiting for Connor to do as persuaded, the relationship between the
two took a different turn altogether. This time around, they are looking towards locking horns on
the ring.

Malignaggi said that he is aware that his people are speaking to Connor’s people about the fight. So,
if Connor’s people are interested, the fight will happen. For him, he doesn’t need to do any other
thing because he trusts his adviser Al Haymon and the UFC president, Dana White to come up with
a positive arrangement. That is if McGregor has some balls to face him.

He posited that from all indications, Connor will benefit more from the fight. He believes it will pay
him more in exposure and even monetary gains. He called it the biggest fight there is out there,
since there is no longer a Mayweather fight.

It would be recalled that the two weight Lightweight belt champion’s manager has posited last
week, that he will soon get on the ring to defend his title.
