Paul Malignaggi discusses sparring with Conor McGregor

Khabib Nurmagomedov

The sparring knockout story was squashed in all corners subsequently after getting out by the likes of Brandon Rios and Paulie Malignaggi. They offered the fight, I accepted the fight, they tried to make the fight. He's clearly got a few surprises up his sleeve, and that's why someone with the boxing brain and experience of Malignaggi will be a huge help. "I think. coming into this situation already knowing Conor has a big left hand. you're probably going to prepare for that left hand".

The sparring session had even bigger gloves, likely 14 ounce, and Malignaggi praised McGregor's power.

There was a lot of fighting right away. With a record of 0-0, people are unsure if McGregor can do what needs to be done to become the first man to defeat the five-division world champion. While Malignaggi admitted that it does indeed have a "pop", it isn't the only thing that McGregor has focused on. Conor McGregor fight was finalized however, Conor McGregor and his team reached out to Malignaggi to join Team McGregor and help the UFC champ prepare for what many believe is a almost impossible task.

"We all know how this fight is going to end", said Hoffar, "so I hope you enjoyed that tour where they were in, Toronto, New York, London because that's really going to be the highlight of this entire process".

"Without giving away too much, he's effective at what he's doing". There's a method to his madness. He and his team are working at it.

Drew Hoffar is back to talk boxing, specifically the McGregor Mayweather fight coming up this August.

Anticipation continues to build for the August 26th mega-fight, where two worlds will collide in one spectacular event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"I wasn't sure what to expect".
