After Malignaggi fallout, boxing champ Vasyl Lomachenko reaches out to Conor McGregor about sparring


Sparring partner reinforcements for Conor McGregor could be on the way after the UFC lightweight champion lost the help of Paulie Malignaggi after a dramatic and highly publicized fallout between the two sides.

Malignaggi left McGregor’s (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) camp for his Aug. 26 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather (49-0 boxing) after some unflattering sparring photos were released online. Malignaggi called McGregor “one of the biggest dirtbags” he’s met, but apparently that info wasn’t enough to force others to hold off from offering their help.

Vasyl Lomachenko

Two time Olympic gold medalist and current WBO featherweight and super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko said he would be willing to work with “The Notorious,” and setting it up is just a phone call away (via Twitter).

With the bout between McGregor and Mayweather less than three weeks away, it is unknown if the Irishman would be willing to connect with Lomachenko, but the offer is interesting nonetheless.

McGregor, the No. 1-ranked fighter in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA lightweight rankings, has yet to publicly respond to Malignaggi’s statements. However, he has an open workout scheduled for Wednesday in Las Vegas where he will likely address the situation to media members.

McGregor meets Mayweather at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The event airs on pay-per-view for a high-definition price tag of $99.95.
