Joe Cortez knows better than anyone what actually happened between McGregor and Malignaggi in the sparring sessions ahead of McGregor’s fight against Floyd Mayweather. Cortez, who presided over the sparring sessions to help McGregor gain a better understanding of boxing rules, thinks the dispute between McGregor and Malignaggi should be settled in a rematch for real.
I can tell you that I was there for 12 rounds with them and there was a lot going on. A lot of boxing fans and MMA fans want to know and I can tell you from being there that the fight should happen. It was very competitive. That is what I am saying. I know for a fact that it would make a good fight. It would be a better fight than McGregor vs Mayweather.
