Conor McGregor knocked down sparring partner and former world boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi
The video of Conor McGregor's questionable competing session with Paulie Malignaggi has been leaked in front of the UFC star's boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather later this month.
The Irishman goes 12 rounds – or less, on the off chance that you are to accept either boxer's knockout forecasts – with his American rival in Las Vegas on 26th August.
However, his well-preparation for the super fight hit a speed bump a month ago when Malignaggi, who was drafted in by McGregor as a fighting accomplice, raged out of the camp after photos developed of him on the canvas, suggesting he had been whupped down.

The 36-year-old retired two-time world champion, Malignaggi said he was pushed and the photograph was not a true representation of what occurred as he claimed McGregor's camp to distribute the full video.
