Conor McGregor might have just received an offer too good to refuse.
With the ugly fallout from the Irishman’s split with sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi continuing, one of the most talented boxers on the planet now claims he’d be willing to step in.
Vasyl Lomachenko, fresh off his dominant win over Miguel Marriaga, on Wednesday reached out to McGregor on Twitter to see if he needed a new sparring partner.
While the Ukrainian’s tweet may well have been tongue‑in‑cheek, the idea could still be well worth pursuing for McGregor.

Lomachenko is a two‑time Olympic gold medallist and widely regarded as the greatest amateur boxer of all time with a stunning record of 396‑1.
His impressive rise through the professional ranks is now evening earning him comparisons with the late, great Muhammad Ali.
Mayweather will face McGregor on the 27th of this month.
