Malignaggi Calls Out McGregor
Conor doesn’t fight as if he has no balls. His anatomy is fine. His boxing is another story.

“The only way this doesn’t happen is if this guy has no balls,” said Paulie, “which wouldn’t surprise me…”

Floyd Mayweather’s recent fight elevated Conor McGregor. He we won the lottery and can take all the time in the world to decide who he wants to fight next. Cage fights with recently crowned interim champion Tony Ferguson or a fight against unbeaten lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov have been floated as possibilities. There are also rumors of a rubber match versus Nate Diaz or a fight with former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

And then of course there’s boxing.

Malignaggi helped legitimize McGregor. The sparring sessions and crack house smacked of boxing noir. But Paulie knows the deal. He also knows the drill.

“I know Al Haymon’s talking with Dana White,” Malignaggi told FightHype.com. “I know they’re speaking so if they want the fight they’ll make it. I spoke to Team Haymon and they told me they were on board to make this fight. I knew the only way it wouldn’t happen is if this guy doesn’t have absolutely any balls to make it.

“But this fight would pay him more, this fight would get him more exposure, this fight is a bigger fight than anything else he has. There’s no more Mayweather fight, this fight is the biggest fight there is. So once they told me that I said, ‘All right, the only way this doesn’t happen is if this guy has absolutely no balls’ — which wouldn’t surprise me because he has no balls. Even if it’s not the next fight, even if it’s an MMA fight in his next fight, there’s no way he should be walking away from this fight unless he has no balls.”

McGregor doesn’t fight as if he has no balls. His anatomy is fine.

His boxing is another story.

“You’re a real pussy,” continued Paulie in full-blown trash talk mode. “They must have raised you in the nice part of town wherever you’re from, I don’t know, man, real tough guys don’t do shit like that. He’s just an outright pussy, it’s crazy.”

The fighters need only sign on the dotted line.

The rest is boxing history.
