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’.

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.
