Former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi recently put in some sparring rounds with Conor McGregor to help him get ready for his Aug. 29 showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Many are wondering if Conor will be able to land on the defensive genius, and if so, can he hurt Floyd. Malignaggi recently spoke about the sparring session and his takeaway from it but in this new interview he opens up even more.
“Conor has pop that you have to respect,” Malignaggi said. “Conor’s power is definitely something you have to respect. It’s just not ‘oh my god’ power. And ‘oh my god’ power in reality is very rare.”
