The feud between Paulie Malignaggi and Conor McGregor continues to grow. Malignaggi, set to face off against McGregor’s sparring partner Artem Lobov in a Bare-Knuckle Boxing contest in June, posted a video of himself in front of a McGregor mural in California. When asked what he thought of the MMA fighter, Paulie spat on the mural.
Malignaggi’s beef with the McGregor camp started during McGregor’s sparring sessions with him ahead of the Irishman’s bout agianst Floyd Mayweather. The former Welterweight Champion took exception of several photos of him during the session, demanding that McGregor release the full training videos. When McGregor didn’t and continued to egg him on, Malignaggi confronted Conor.
Paulie recently slapped Lobov at a Bare-Knuckle Boxing event and has continued to challenge Conor to a fight. Conor remains retired from the combat sports world following a tweet a few weeks ago.
