Several Pro Boxers And Boxing Champions React To Conor vs. Paulie Sparring Footage

UFC megastar Conor McGregor will have to make the last of his preparations for his epic cross-promotional bout against Floyd Mayweather Jr. without his former sparring partner Paul Malignaggi.

The former boxing champion shortly entered McGregor’s camp to help the UFC lightweight champion train for his fight against Mayweather. However, Malignaggi departed from the camp shortly after a series of sparring photos were leaked onto the internet. Following the boxer’s departure, a short clip of sparring footage from Malignaggi being arguably dropped by McGregor made its way onto the internet. Now, the video is getting responses from fighters and fans alike.

In the videos below, some of boxing’s best can be seen giving their thoughts on the footage. Among them, boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard and three division champion Shane Mosley offer their thoughts on the controversial knockdown.
