Conor McGregor's sparring partner quits, citing 'circus,' misleading photos

McGregor and his team are also prepared for any further pre-fight gamesmanship from Mayweather, insisting they will not be rattled. "I try not to be petty but seems it's late for that now", he said.

" It's not my place to dictate terms in a training camp that is not mine, but it's my place to decide if I I want to be a part of it".

"So I booked my flight and I'll be at the Mayweather boxing gym until the beginning of September". "No rest for the wicked", said Eubank Jr.

A consistent member of Forbes' annual lists of top-paid athletes in the world, Mayweather raked in at least $250 million in his 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao - which went down as the richest bout in boxing history.

"I haven't been this intrigued to watch a fight in years".

Reacting later to the picture of him on the canvas on Twitter, Malignaggi added: "I came to help this camp out, not to be exploited, now you're going to get the truth".

Now with just a few weeks until McGregor and Mayweather face off, the UFC champ will be left in search of another high-level boxing to come in and spar.

Ahead of the August 26 showdown in Las Vegas, Betfair is reporting that betting via its exchange has already topped £7.5 million.

"Conor is used to fighting in 4oz gloves so it doesn't matter to him". Conor on the inside, he can get a little rough.

"Mayweather Promotions is very proud of its longstanding partnership with Fathom Events and we're glad to be able to once again bring a Floyd Mayweather fight to movie theaters nationwide", said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions.

A number of photos were posted to social media of a Tuesday sparring session Malignaggi told ESPN contained "a lot of violence".

On Thursday, McGregor's camp posted the picture below, with the caption "Ghostie", and that clearly didn't sit well with Malignaggi.

"Its not nice 2 paint a pic that isn't true, this was a pushdown in sparring, post the whole video rounds 1 through 12 UNEDITED", Malignaggi wrote. "I came with the best intentions and meant to help out", he said in a statement.

The native of Brooklyn, New York, went on to post a full statement regarding why he made a decision to leave.
