Malignaggi informed ESPN he was furious that images had surfaced of McGregor getting the better of him in the ring. One photo reveals McGregor seemingly sending the former world champion to the canvas. Malignaggi demands he was pushed, and wants video of the procedure to be produced showing what he says is the total story.
“I did not want to become the history, and that’s what it’s turned into,” Malignaggi informed ESPN on Thursday. “I won’t release any information regarding his game Mayweather vs McGregor or what he is taking care of – I wouldn’t do that. But this has turned into a fiasco. It is a circus.
“And I do want that sparring movie released. The UFC’s PI definitely has that video. I realize it can not emerge today, but Conor, when you yourself have any balls, discharge what really happened.”
Malignaggi included he and McGregor had “a shared respect within the ring” and that his departure was linked to matters outside the ring.
Mayweather might carry a great 49-0 professional boxing report to the fight. He is built a full time income from his defensive, counterpunching design of boxing, and given McGregor’s not enough knowledge with larger gloves, he’d likely have difficulty landing substantial strikes on Money Mayweather.
If you are trying to cash in on McGregor, but, he does have several factors working to his advantage. He’s younger, larger and has amazing punching energy and accuracy. A fast scan of his attack record in the UFC reveals he’s pay men who’ve never been KO’d or even slipped before and a quarrel could be produced that he has the most effective hands in the real history of MMA. Still another element to consider is that Mayweather hasn’t fought since September 2015, that will make it 714 times between battles, so there’s number method of knowing how a extended layoff may affect the 40-year-old.
McGregor, famous for his UFC career, looks Floyd Mayweather in a boxing fight on 26 May in Las Vegas. The battle has been criticized as a money-making stunt: the 40-year-old Mayweather is known as among the best competitors of them all, while McGregor does not have any professional boxing experience. Both guys may make around $100m from the fight.
However, the run-up to the attack has obtained bad attention. McGregor called Mayweather, who is African-american American, “boy” in their first push meeting, an opinion generally viewed as racially insensitive, including by Mayweather himself. The National went on to call McGregor “a faggot&rdquo ;.
Tickets for the battle at Las Vegas’s T-Mobile Arena, which cost up to $15,000, have also distributed slowly.
