Bitter rivals and regular bashing merchants in the media of one another, Paulie Malignaggi and Conor McGregor have both come up in the same sentence once again as 2019 rang in with fresh reports that the two could be in line for a boxing match with one another.

McGregor has not responded to the allegations from Malignaggi pertaining to his alleged cocaine use as of yet but expect some form of retort in the coming days.

The Irish MMA super star has only had one professional boxing match to date — a stoppage defeat at the hands of Floyd Mayweather back in September of 2017.
