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.
