Were Floyd Mayweather and Paulie Malignaggi plotting against Conor McGregor all along?


Did Floyd Mayweather send Paulie Malignaggi into Conor McGregor’s camp as a plant? Mayweather says so, but perhaps it was tongue-in-cheek?

Malignaggi became one of the main storylines ahead of Saturday’s fight between Mayweather (49-0 boxing) and McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) when he joined the UFC lightweight champion’s camp and engaged in a pair of sparring sessions. The situation blew up after unflattering photos and video footage were released to the public, leading to a feud between Malignaggi and McGregor.

With the clock rapidly winding down until Mayweather fights McGregor at T-Mobile Aren in Las Vegas, a new twist in the story has been revealed. Malignaggi made a fight week stop by Mayweather’s gym, and the pair were chumming it up, hinting that they would talk strategy before the fight. Malignaggi can be heard uttering the words “suckers” in the video.

Mayweather indicated that he sent his “friend” into McGregor’s training camp to help get the dirty details. Make of that what you will.
