Floyd Mayweather apparently has an inside source on Conor McGregor’s camp just one day prior to Saturday’s super fight in Las Vegas — Paulie Malignaggi.




You may remember Malignaggi for infamously getting knocked out by McGregor in a sparring session, then taking every opportunity to make excuses as to why it happened on every media outlet possible.

Well, it turns out that he’s been a spy for Mayweather all along, at least according to the undefeated boxing champion.

“Paulie has always been my friend,” Mayweather told FightHype.com while standing alongside Malignaggi in a video released by TMZ Sports. “My friend called me and said, ‘Floyd, do you want me to go to (Conor’s) camp?’ I said, ‘Abso-f*ckin’-lutely.’…Paulie, thank you for going over there like I asked you to do.”

During Mayweather’s gloating, Malignaggi repeatedly says “suckas” as a shot at McGregor and possibly the public for being duped.

“Me and Paulie gonna stay at the house and talk about strategy, we gonna talk about EVERYTHING,” Mayweather added.

Hmm.

Pretty desperate of an undefeated boxer to hire a spy in order to beat an MMA fighter in a boxing match that is sanctioned to all of his rules and stipulations.

Perhaps they should talk about this clip first.
