Referee Joe Cortez finally comments on the Conor McGregor and Paulie Malignaggi knockdown/pushdown

Now that the fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is all over,…

Perhaps the biggest hype leading up to the fight was from within McGregor’s training camp as he and former two-division boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi had a falling out after Malignaggi felt “exploited” with some photos released from their sparring. One photo, in particular, was of Malignaggi getting up off his back from the canvas where it appeared McGregor knocked the retired pro boxer down. Malignaggi claimed it was a pushdown and a video clip released had people debating on whether it was a knockdown or a pushdown.
