IT didn’t take Paulie Malignaggi long to respond to some half-hearted reports linking him with a 2019 boxing match against mixed martial artist Conor McGregor.

The former IBF junior-welterweight champion, never one to let an opportunity go to waste, realises the money-making potential in a fight against McGregor – whatever the discipline and tools involved – and is savvy enough to know, even if the fight never happens, it pays to be linked with the larger-than-life Irishman.

It’s why he hardly missed a beat.
