Former 2-division world champion and now boxing commentator Paulie Malignaggi reacts to rumors that Connor McGregor was KO'd in a boxing sparring.
"That was all B.S. stuff. I think when these reports first came out, he was just returning from a press tour in Europe. The person who was saying that, Jessie Vargas, that he saw Conor get knocked out. That was physically impossible. Conor arrived in Las Vegas that Saturday, it was 2-3 weeks ago. Saturday he arrived and that Sunday the interview with Jessie Vargas came out. He said Conor got knocked out, which is physically impossible unless Conor was flying 14 hours and then sparring the same day," Malignaggi told The Rich Eisen Show.
"Also, another thing is, we train at the UFC headquarters and its very private so nobody can come in. You are not going to get anybody out there who doesn't belong in the gym."
Connor McGregor hired Paulie Malignaggi as his sparring partner ahead of his clash with Floyd Mayweather on August 26th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Nevada.
