Paulie Malignaggi issues high-stakes challenge to Conor McGregor

'Conor is the king of bulls***!': Malignaggi on 'talks’ to settle sparring dispute with McGregor

The short clip showed ex-UFC lightweight and featherweight champion McGregor apparently knocking down Malignaggi, who held world belts at light welterweight and welterweight as a boxer.

Speaking on Off The Ball, Malignaggi upped the ante, challenging McGregor to a winner-takes-all fight in the boxing ring.

After the Mayweather loss, McGregor went on to continue his fight career in the octagon, losing his next fight to Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov in an unsuccessful attempt to regain his UFC lightweight title. Hearn can easily put the fight together, [Al] Haymon can easily put the fight together, Showtime have said they'd be interested in it - I don't think it's a no-brainer at this point. I think that's still a fight [Khabib vs McGregor] that a lot of fans want to see.

"I told him here, to his face 'Don't be bitching.' Common knowledge I would think for a fighting man. Many individuals in the fight business, I have learned lately, are absolute bitches".

He continued to rant about McGregor, calling him the "king of bulls**t".

Netflix's 'Velvet Buzzsaw' makes early claim for craziest trailer of the year
But events start to get weird when some paintings by a virtually unknown artist take over the art scene of Los Angeles . Like many projects from Netflix , we won't have long to wait after seeing the Velvet Buzzsaw trailer.

'In boxing I'd be interested in it - I'd love to do a winner-takes-all fight just so he can go for free but I don't think he'd ever agree to that.

However, when asked by the Daily Express to clarify the rumors, Brooklynite Malignaggi reportedly answered: "Not true", before going onto call out McGregor and his team on suspicion of creating false flags in order to stay relevant. That guy just did an exhibition with Floyd Mayweather - I don't think he was intending to fight guys as big as Floyd and Conor, that physically big - he's a very small guy.

The Irish MMA super star has only had one professional boxing match to date - a stoppage defeat at the hands of Floyd Mayweather back in September of 2017.

"Floyd Mayweather doesn't lose - Conor loses every year". Guys like Floyd earn that kind of thing.
