Paulie Malignaggi leaves McGregor’s training camp
Paulie Malignaggi has spent much time with Conor McGregor , helping the UFC lightweight champion prepare for his Aug. 26 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.
But Maglignaggi is seemingly furious with “The Notorious” after a controversial photo was posted (then deleted, then reposted) on Instagram by someone inside the Irishman’s camp (via Twitter).
“Its not nice 2 paint a pic that isn’t true, this was a pushdown in sparring, post the whole video rounds 1 through 12 UNEDITE,” wrote the boxer.
“The @ufc PI has cameras all over the gym recording 24/7. The video exists UNEDITED of rounds 1 through 12 Tuesday night, let the fans see.”
“I came to help this camp out, not to be exploited, now your gonna get the truth though. Post FULL UNEDITED VIDEO FROM TUES night #Ethics“
“I actually beat his ass, 24 hrsoff a flight 2 lol, which is why Im saying post the vid, I try not 2 be petty but seems it’s late 4 that now.”
Here are the photos in question:
In the end Malignaggi decided the transgressions were enough for him to cut his ties with the McGregor team, and he took to social media to announce his decision.
