Nathan Cleverly on Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor card

Welsh star will defend WBA title on undercard of Mc Gregor vs. Mayweather

McGregor had been mostly coy on the subject, but that all changed Friday night.

"I love the sport of boxing".

Malignaggi had a lot to say to multiple media outlets about McGregor, which included McGregor "whimpering like a girl" after being hit by body shots, "he was getting beat up" and that the Irishman was too arrogant. "I'm not going to say hard to time, because you can get a timing on him, but at first glance you are not going to get a look that you're accustomed to and then depending on him, his aggression, his non-aggression, because Conor has different methods of executing his little game-plans that he has", Malignagg told Sky Sports (h/t Bloody Elbow).

Malignaggi was brought in to help the UFC lightweight champion prepare for his professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The four-fight main card airs on Showtime PPV, following a preliminary program live on FOX.

"I am the face of the fight game, period".

McGregor devoted his attention to talking down Mayweather and making sure the world knows he's not going into his first professional boxing match with any fear or intimidation. And yet, McGregor remains under contract with the UFC, which could potentially throw a wrench in his plans.

Mayweather took to Instagram last week saying he wants the fight in eight-ounce gloves. William Hill's Nevada sportsbook, where 95 percent of the bets have been on the underdog, said its liability on McGregor is already well over $1 million. He told MMAjunkie in late June that McGregor relayed wishes to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov in Russian Federation, which McGregor later confirmed was one of his desires. He praised McGregor for bringing Hall of Fame referee Joe Cortez to his camp to help the MMA star with the rules of boxing.

Konstantin takes some of the silver-tongued UFC superstar's one-liners from his news conferences leading up to his megafight against Floyd Mayweather, and plays a song on his ukulele.

Could managing other boxers under his own promotional banner also be in McGregor's future? "The future looks bright".
