It was probably always going to come down to this considering the personality clash, but now it’s official. Paulie Malignaggi has decided to part ways with Conor McGregor’s camp following misleading photos released by McGregor’s team which were intended to make Malignaggi look bad. He really didn’t like that.
Late last night Malginaggi posted the following message on social media.
I mean, I don’t know how much more there really is for Paulie to reveal, he’s already accused the McGregor of a “set up” when they scheduled him to spar 12 rounds a day after he flew across country to come to camp. He also plainly said the posted photo of him on the ground was due to a push down, and didn’t take kindly to the misrepresentation.
Paulie also posted several tweets on sparring session as well...
I actually beat his ass, 24 hrsoff a flight 2 lol, which is why Im saying post the vid, I try not 2 be petty but seems it's late 4 that now. https://t.co/vSE2Iw4ffM— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 4, 2017
Nah I pretty much talked shit that whole sparring session while I beat the breaks off him, the push down was his frustration from it. https://t.co/m0IDBP0pB2— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 4, 2017
Hate to say it but it's clear when I look back at my time there that there was an agenda from the start, too many clues. https://t.co/dxjLvu3Oyt— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 4, 2017
An agenda? Who could’ve seen that coming?!
Considering that Paulie will be working with Showtime on the Mayweather-McGregor event, he’ll have both the time and opportunity to dish on whatever he feels necessary in regards to his experience working with McGregor. And knowing Paulie, he’s going to have plenty to say.
