Paulie Malignaggi challenges Conor McGregor to ‘winner takes all’ boxing fight and vows to ‘beat s***’ out of UFC star – The Sun

CONOR MCGREGOR'S fierce rival Paulie Malignaggi has called out the Notorious yet again for a "winner takes all" boxing scrap.

The former sparring partners had a high-profile falling out three years ago in the build-up to McGregor's fight with Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor released images of him appearing to knockout Malignaggi during a training session which angered the American.

Malignaggi was furious and stormed away from the camp to reignite the hatred between the pair.

Since then the pair have continued to recall different accounts of what happened in their sparring sessions and have been engaged in a war of words.

And now Malignaggi, who lost to Artem Lobov in a brutal bare-knuckle scrap last year, wants to put his money where his mouth is and end the feud once and for all.

Promising to "beat the s***" out of McGregor, he told Boxing Scene: "The Conor McGregor fight always interests me.

"I will gladly do winner takes all the money in that fight. I will put my finances at risk because it will be a pleasure to beat that guy up.

"There would be a lot of money in the pot. I would rather let the winner take it all.

"He's dragged my name too much in the mud. He knows he will get the s*** beat out of him if he tries me.

"Him and I both know that. He gets stopped, 100 per cent, no doubt about. He can't last the distance in a boxing match."

Malignaggi's last boxing match ended in defeat against Brit Sam Eggington three years ago.

McGregor hasn't fought in the boxing ring since losing to Mayweather but returned to the Octagon in January to beat Donald Cerrone.

And Malignaggi further criticised McGregor's level of opponent insisting he would be the bigger step up.

The former WBA welterweight champion added: "He'd rather fight guys like Donald Cerrone who are half dead going into the cage.

"People argue that I'm not a big enough name for McGregor. Cerrone is definitely half the name that I am, and that's no shot at him, because he's done a lot in his MMA career.

"I'm a bigger fighter than Cerrone."
