Paulie Malignaggi recently paid a visit to Fox’s Sports XTRA and opened up about his experience sparring with Conor McGregor. The former world champion left Camp McGregor after photos were published from a session. The images showed Malignaggi floored on the canvas after a what McGregor’s team called knockdown but the American says it was a ‘push down’.

“He was frustrated getting beat up on that particular day. It was actually a shove down, a push down. I think the referee [Joe Cortez] wasn’t even allowed to talk about it,” said Malignaggi.

Malignaggi and McGregor had a war of words when the Irishman announced his move to professional boxing. Back then, Malignaggi challenged McGregor publically and apparently, ‘The Notorious’ had not let it go.

McGregor is about to make $100 million dollars from fighting Floyd Mayweather. Despite the big payday and a wealthy budget, Malignaggi said McGregor did not provide proper living conditions for the sparring partners.
