Paulie Malignaggi Says Conor McGregor Has A Game Plan For Floyd Mayweather ‘There’s A Method Behind His Madness’
Former WBA welterweight champ Paulie Malignaggi is speaking out after sparring with Conor McGregor earlier in the week and he has nothing but good things to say about the UFC star despite the massive amount of trash talk that went on during the training. According to Malignaggi, Conor’s team has a game plan against Mayweather and that the Irishman is “effective at what he’s doing”.
“It was educational,”. “There was a lot of trash talking, which me and him both known to have a little bit. Like I said, we did eight good rounds of work. It was physical work and Conor is coming along.”
He’s got a game plan behind it,” “It’s not what people think. There’s a game plan behind what he’s doing. There’s a method to Conor’s madness.”
“You come into the situation already knowing Conor has a big left hand,” “So if you’re fighting Conor, you’re probably gonna prepare for that left hand. So obviously Conor is working on other things besides the left hand, so that there could be a surprise element to it, too.”
“Without giving away too much, he’s effective at what he’s doing,” Malignaggi said of McGregor said. “There’s a method behind the madness. He and his team are working at it. I’m sure it’ll be entertaining and fun.”
We’re going to have to see how effective McGregor can be against Mayweather next month,
