And a war of words ensued before the fight, with the New Yorker happy to take a swipe at McGregor’s ability as a boxer.

Malignaggi, 36, has been a world champion at two weights and retired earlier this year after defeat to Sam Eggington in London.

But he confirmed his promoter Al Haymon has been in talks with UFC owner Dana White over a possible return to the ring.

Malignaggi said on FightHype.com: “I know Al Haymon’s talking to Dana White. I know they’re speaking, so if they want the fight they’ll make it.

“Once I spoke to Al and Team Haymon, and they told me they wanted to make this fight, I knew that the only way this fight doesn’t happen is if [Conor McGregor] has absolutely no balls.”

Malignaggi took particular exception to the fact that McGregor’s social media team released footage of him being knocked down during a sparring session.

And Malignaggi has told McGregor, 29, that he will get more exposure from a boxing match against him than he would a UFC fight with Nate Diaz or Tony Ferguson.

Although McGregor is obliged to fight Ferguson, 33, next.

“Magic Man” added: “This fight will pay him more, this fight will get him more exposure. This fight is a bigger fight than anybody else he has.

“There’s no more Mayweather fight. This fight is the biggest fight there is.
