Paulie Malignaggi has revealed the real story behind the viral photograph of him laying on the ring in front of Conor McGregor during their hotly‑debated sparring session in Las Vegas.
The photograph was published on Twitter by McGregor’s photographer Dave Fogarty on August 4 with a caption “there is no conspiracy, there is no photoshop just pure unadulterated power”.
Malignaggi has furiously denied he was ever knocked down by the UFC star during the 12‑round session insisting he was pushed down in the moment the photo was taken.
Malignaggi believes he was pushed down to give an idea that he was knocked down by McGregor during their sparring session.
Malignaggi quit the camp after the image was leaked following the session.
Conor McGregor will meet Floyd Mayweather on the 19th of this month.
