FLOYD MAYWEATHER admits concerns over how Conor McGregor will fight on August 26 after footage of the Irishman’s spar with Paulie Malignaggi was released online.

McGregor’s promoter, Dana White, uploaded two short clips onto social media showing Conor sparring Malignaggi and allegedly knocking the former world champion down.

Mayweather has seen the footage, which amounts to roughly 20 seconds in total, and believes that UFC star McGregor, who will make his professional boxing debut against Floyd next week, was not following the Queensbury Rules.
