Paulie Malignaggi Sparred With Conor McGregor For 8 Rounds

Floyd Mayweather on the weigh in scales

The fight itself is roughly a month away but Drew Hoffar thinks that the most entertaining part of the fight has just ended...the tour. "It was physical work, it was good work, and Conor is coming along", said Malignaggi.

Paulie Malignaggi spoke with Brett Okamoto of ESPN Friday, noting that he got in eight rounds of sparring with McGregor on Thursday.

Asked about McGregor's punching power, Malignaggi acknowledged that his left hand is risky, but also indicated that the Irishman was working on other aspects of his game to keep Mayweather guessing on August 26th. "He was talkin'... Look he's been brought in to spar and then he'll answer to what he's been saying and then we'll go from there after that".

"You know, back in, first it was June, it was Anderson".

Alvarez recently told "Five Rounds" podcast that people are downright stupid if they think the UFC Lightweight Champion has no chance of knocking out Floyd Mayweather.

The man is described as white, between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches and weighing 180 to 220 pounds. Indiana State Police released a picture of a suspect, which was taken by Liberty on her cell phone.

McGregor has enlisted the help of Malignaggi, who has previously held the IBF light welterweight and WBA welterweight titles, to aid his transition from MMA to boxing ahead of August's "super-fight" in Las Vegas. "He's effective at what he's doing".

Conor McGregor has sent yet another chilling warning to Floyd Mayweather Jr, whom he will box on August 26.

"The division, it's hard to find somebody that wants to fight these days, and so that's relevant I guess to some extent, and so now I think I'm finally zeroed in and I'm gonna make something happen here shortly".

"I wouldn't say I'm going there to train him but I might be able to give him some technical titbits", he said. "Conor is a competitor, I'm a competitor. That's up to Conor McGregor".
