Malignaggi took to Twitter to continue to dispute the claim that McGregor, who will box the 49-0 Floyd Mayweather on August 26 in Las Vegas, knocked him down. The former multiple weight class world champion, who officially retired from boxing in March, was brought into McGregor's camp to be a sparring partner.
After the photo was posted, Malignaggi said that he "came to help this camp out, not to be exploited", and he quit as McGregor's sparring partner shortly after.
Many wonder if UFC fighter Conor McGregor has what it takes to beat - or even keep up with - boxing champion Floyd Mayweather in their super fight slated to go August 26 from Las Vegas.
Wearing a robe made for him by fashion designer Donatella Versace, emblazoned with his name and "Notorious" nickname in gold on the back, McGregor said he felt in "pristine condition" as he had his hands wrapped for the workout. Malignaggi did concede McGregor got the better of him in the final two rounds. Straight after it we were anxious.
The other video posted by White, shows McGregor clearly landing a series of punches against Malignaggi, including a head-rocking left.
Against Mayweather, who sports a ideal 49-0 record and the distinction of being the most unhittable fighter in boxing history, McGregor attempts to do the impossible once again in his first-ever professional boxing match.
McGregor, who has never fought professionally in a boxing ring, is taking on a 49-0 gargantuan of the sport. "A billion-dollar event. I think we both owe the fans, everyone that's tuned in - I think we both should give them excitement". "The man was badly, badly concussed. And then he just got out of there and went running".
McGregor maintains that he "whooped" Malignaggi during the sessions, according to ESPN.
"In my opinion, this was the best thing for him", said McGregor, who could make $100 million for the fight.
Mayweather and McGregor are scheduled to fight at 154 pounds. "You cant prepare for me, you can't prepare for me".
Malignaggi has said he wouldn't release any tactical or strategic information following his experience with McGregor.
