The tension between Paulie Malignaggi and Artem Lobov continues on the road to their Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship showdown in June.
In an interview done with Conor McGregor’s The Mac Life, Malignaggi made it clear if he needed to, he’d spit on the MMA Fighter’s mother the same way he spat at Lobov earlier this month at a press conference in Manhattan.
“I don’t regret it because the line was crossed a long time ago,” Malignaggi said of the post press conference incident that nearly saw a fight break out..
“You can’t take spitting or anything else out of context. This line was crossed two years ago. Once you cross the line, you can’t set a new line. Not only do I not regret it, if his mother was at the press conference, I would have spit on her too. There’s no reason to regret anything. I’m ashamed I couldn’t do more. Once you cross that line with me, we can just go.”
