Conor McGregor wants to fight Paulie Malignaggi, Floyd Mayweather in boxing ring

Conor McGregor may have signed a six-fight deal with the UFC, but that doesn’t imply his boxing career is over.

The Irishman made his debut in professional boxing in August last year. He was knocked out in the 10th round by American legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. He made a comeback inside the octagon recently, only to be stopped by Russian rival Khabib Nurmagomedov in a fight for the UFC lightweight championship.

However, if the Irishman’s latest words are anything to go by, he will be entering the boxing ring for at least two more times.

Who will be his opponents? Well, he’s eying a rematch with Mayweather and a fight with former sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi.

This comes just days after Malignaggi, who shares a sour relationship with McGregor, criticized the latter following his latest defeat.

“We win or we lose. That’s fine. And we go out as fighters, we go out as men, we go out with dignity. That’s what competition is,” Malignaggi told IFL TV of McGregor’s defeat to Khabib.

“But go out like a man. Don’t look to make contracts in the middle of the fight like ‘It was just business. Don’t hurt me. It was just business.’ You p*ssy. I had my face falling off against Cotto.”

Do you guys see McGregor winning a boxing match?
