Pair’s relationship has rapidly deteriorated after the former two-time world champ stormed out of the Irishman’s training camp
PAULIE MALIGNAGGI has sensationally opened the door to fight Conor McGregor.
And the former two-time world champ wants to take down the Irishman on St Patrick’s Day next year.
The pair’s relationship has hit rock bottom after Malignaggi stormed out of McGregor’s training camp.
He had been helping McGregor prepare for his mega-money superfight against Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas on August 26.
Malignaggi was furious after an image appeared to show him knocked down to the canvas following a sparring session.
The American insisted it was a push but a leaked video appeared to show the truth which later sparked a war of words.
And Malignaggi wants to take the rivalry to a new level by taking it to 12 rounds in the ring.
When asked by MMA Hour if he wanted the fight, he said: “Yeah. At this point? Yeah.

“When you don’t like someone you don’t spar them, you fight them.
“It’s picked up a ton of momentum, the bad blood is there so let’s fight.
“We’ll need to see how he looks against Mayweather. If he looks dog s***, no one will want to see us fight.
“As long as he doesn’t get the living s*** beaten out of him, I think the demand is there to make the fight.”
Malignaggi has eyed the scrap to take place on St Patrick’s Day on March 17 which falls on a Saturday.
He added: “I’m a businessman, once this all started coming out, my eyes went to the calendar when this thing started buzzing.”
