Watch McGregor Vs Mayweather fight Live : ‘Got to be very cautious what you say around Conor’ – world view.

CONOR McGregor’s ex-sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi has ripped into the “arrogant” UFC superstar, as one of his inner circle gave an intriguing insight into the Irishman’s ego.

Malignaggi, a former two-weight boxing world champion, made an explosive exit from McGregor’s camp after feeling wronged in the portrayal of their sparring sessions – in particular, a photograph that suggested ‘The Notorious’ had knocked him down.

“My problem with Conor is his arrogance,” Malignaggi said in his latest broadside, delivered on Fox 5’s Sports Xtra, as time ticks down to McGregor’s August 27 (AEST) fight against unbeaten boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

“His arrogance is to the point where he can’t progress. He can’t learn. He just wants a bunch of yes men around him.

“He doesn’t want to be told that he’s doing something wrong. He doesn’t want to be told that he needs to make progress, so that he needs to change certain things.

“Whatever he’s doing, he just wants to be told how great he’s doing.”

A major feature on McGregor – Wright Thompson’s cover story for ESPN The Magazine, which delves into the Irishman’s rough upbringing in working-class inner-city Dublin – provides a telling insight along those lines from one of his inner circle.

McGregor’s striking coach Owen Roddy suggests that for all his bravado and famed mental strength, the megastar also has a fragile element to his ego.

That reflection was prefaced with an anecdote about McGregor selling tickets to one of his early MMA shows on behalf of coach John Kavanagh, before spending the money himself – “in essence stealing it from his coach. Instead of facing the consequences, McGregor ghosted Kavanagh, ashamed and barely getting out of bed. When he did, Crumlin started to pull him back in. All those years of avoiding trouble hung in the balance. His mother begged Kavanagh for a second chance. The coach said yes.

“Kavanagh understood McGregor and the quicksands of Dublin. Kavanagh is the son of a construction worker. And in his coach, McGregor found things missing in himself: a calming presence, a man who knew how to marshal his talents while minimising his limitations.

“McGregor, for all his bravado, can be fragile. Norman Mailer wrote about approaching Ali’s psyche like you’d approach a squirrel. That’s true for Conor too. ‘You got to be very cautious what you say around Conor,’ says striking coach Owen Roddy.”

What date is the fight : Mayweather vs McGregor

 

What date is the fight and at what time?

The fight is happening on Saturday 26 August. While the times haven’t been announced, it will certainly be a late night or very early start for viewers in the UK, so expect to be up well into Sunday 27 August, and possibly calling in sick on Monday 28.
Where is the fight taking place?

The bout will be housed in the T-Mobile arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada. The venue has held major fights in the past, including UFC 202, in which McGregor beat Nate Diaz on points.

It’s either the boxing match of the millennium or a cross-code money-spinning abomination, but what we can tell you with certainty, at long last, is that it’s happening. Once-retired all-time great boxer Floyd Mayweather will take on UFC’s biggest star Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.

There have been what feels like years of speculation about the fight, with much name-calling on both sides. But the two fighters have announced that it is indeed, on.

Yes, that’s right, a boxer with a 49-0 record facing a man who has never taken part in a professional boxing fight.

Mayweather retired in 2015 with an unblemished 49-0 professional boxing record.

He is widely regarded as one of the best defensive fighters ever, and prides himself on his ability to evade punishment with his skillful movement about the ring while making adjustments against opponents on the fly.

A win for Mayweather would move him ahead of former heavyweight great Rocky Marciano, who also retired with a perfect 49-0 career record.

McGregor, the UFC’s reigning lightweight champion and former featherweight champion, is known as much for his bravado as for his explosive knockout power inside an MMA octagon.
