After uncharacteristically questioning his own ability to beat Conor McGregor for much of the pre-fight promotion, Floyd Mayweather’s trademark cockiness has resurfaced as the fight draws closer.
Yesterday, Mayweather appeared with his old friend – and jettisoned McGregor sparring partner – Paulie Malignaggi, and revealed that Malignaggi was on the Money Team all along.
Mayweather implied that he sent Malignaggi to spy on the McGgregor camp from the beginning and has been getting the full scouting download on the UFC Champ before their fight.
In this clip, both of the boxers appear buddy-buddy, and Malignaggi calls McGregor a ‘sucker’ for letting him into camp.
Is this true? Or just Mayweather blowing smoke? It’s impossible to know, but they try to sell it here.
