Conor McGregor Is Already In Talks for Another Boxing Match

Conor McGregor’s next UFC match was all but confirmed last week, but already it appears the Irishman has designs on stepping back into the boxing ring.

As you may remember, during the build-up to McGregor’s super fight with Floyd Mayweather, one of the running subplots was his relationship — or lack thereof — with sparring partner, Paulie Malignaggi. Malignaggi walked out on McGregor’s camp after pictures of the retired boxer hitting the canvas were uploaded on social media, claiming that this was an unfair representation of what actually went down.

 

Now Malignaggi is looking to get McGregor into the boxing ring once again, confirming that talks regarding a potential showdown are already underway between his manager Al Haymon and UFC president Dana White.

“I know Al Haymon’s talking to Dana White. If they want the fight, they’ll make it,” Malignaggi told FightHype.

“I don’t need to do all of that because Al Haymon makes anything he wants happen, happen. The only way it doesn’t happen if this guy doesn’t have any balls.

“This fight will pay him more, this fight will get him more exposure – this fight is a bigger fight than anything else he has. There’s no more Mayweather fight, this is the biggest fight there is.”

Unlike the Mayweather fight, McGregor would stand a far better chance going into this one, although it remains to be seen if it would capture the imagination of neutrals. McGregor has been uncharacteristically quiet on his prospects of going toe-to-toe with Malignaggi, instead focussing his attention on newly crowned UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson. Just last week, he teased the veteran fighter with the below tweet.
