Paulie Malignaggi says he wants to fight Conor McGregor, to settle the dispute between them, after a well documented sparring row.
Malignaggi says he is ready to fight the irishman next year, as long as he does not suffer a one sided defeat against Mayweather.
Paulie quit the UFC superstar’s training camp, after pictures of him hitting the canvas surfaced online.
“It’s picked up a ton of momentum, the bad blood is there so let’s fight,” he said during an in-depth interview on The MMA Hour.
“We’ll need to see how he looks against Mayweather. If he looks dog s***, no one will want to see us fight.
“As long as he doesn’t get the living s*** beaten out of him, I think the demand is there to make the fight.”
“I showed up with the best intentions in camp, but at a certain point you realise that you are being used as a pawn where somebody is trying to get ahead at your expense and not through your help,” said Malignaggi.
He added: “I had no choice but to leave.
“If I never see him or speak to him for the rest of my life, it’s cool.”
