Paulie Malignaggi replies to heckler online who makes fun of him being out of shape and responding to his bait.
If, and it’s a big if, McGregor was to try his hand at pro boxing again over the coming years and have another fight, Paulie Malignaggi would certainly be up there in a list of opponents after their now well highlighted falling out before the Mayweather vs McGregor boxing match last year.
At the time the American was not pleased with the Irishman releasing footage and pictures of their spar and left the training camp.
The debacle and fall out still continues however, with one fan on Twitter making fun of Malignaggi being out of shape and said of a fight with McGregor
I suppose you are right! Your training would be extremely expensive since you’re outta shape and would need a ton of training to fight @TheNotoriousMMA. You also proved the rest of us right that it’s about the $ and not pride. Those statements are called bait, you took the hook!

To which Malignaggi replied:
“You’re not as smart as you think buddy, no one does this for the hobby, only a sucker would take a fight n let the opponent take all the $$. Try not to hurt yourself Givin that bait, u haven’t even been punched and u clearly have less brain cells and $$ than I do. Be well.”
For those who may not have seen the now infamous sparring clips between Malignaggi and McGregor, that have still to this day never been shown in their entirety – here was one of the more popular ones:
