“The Magic Man” is now on the final stage of his own active career and most recently made world headlines for a very public falling out with one Conor McGregor before the Floyd Mayweather fight last August.
Malignaggi who was drafted in as a sparring partner for the Irishman left the training camp early amid angry back and forth exchanges with McGregor emanating from photos of their sparring exchanges getting released early.
Now the American boxer and Showtime commentator has a new venture in the sport of boxing and spoke about it a short time ago at a press conference in London.
Paulie Malignaggi, Former Two-Weight World Champion, and ULTIMATE BOXXER, Non-Executive Director, said:
“ULTIMATE BOXXER will provide a golden opportunity for unbeaten fighters to test themselves on the big stage regardless of background, trainer or promotional contract. We see this as the future of boxing promotion, and the solution of how we take the sport of boxing to the British public interest. With credible, competitive bouts each fight and a truly modern age experience to build stronger connections with fans in venue and at home.”
The New Yorker continued:
“ULTIMATE BOXXER offers something new, exciting and different to the fight game landscape. The boxers involved are hungry and determined to take a risk in their careers due to lack of opportunity; ULTIMATE BOXXER will enable them to test themselves against rival boxers in the same position and give them an opportunity to towards their ultimate goal of becoming a tournament champion or to open other opportunities that may not have been available to them before.”
Malignaggi is understood to still be an active fighter at this time, with a possible future bout with Conor McGregor not yet ruled out.
