"We've discussed a couple potential things, but I don't know (how long I'll be out there), it'll depend on them", Malignaggi said.

Swift, firm denial from McGregor's camp.

Former WBA and IBO super lightweight boxing champ Jessie Vargas made headlines with controversial comments about Irish UFC star Conor McGregor over the weekend.

"My take is if I ain't seen no footage, I don't believe it", Mayweather told ABS CBN News.

Just like in the build-up to the announcement of the biggest fight of his career, McGregor repeatedly vowed to turn the world on its head by knocking off Mayweather off his perch. "I have to actually, visually see it with my own eyes".

The Telegraph has an exclusive with a member of the Irishman's management team, who has rubbished Vargas' claims. "Neither have sparred with Conor".

"I'm confident about what I can do in there and I'm sure Conor is confident about what he can do in there, and yeah, we'll probably have a knock", Malignaggi told Ariel Helwani on "The MMA Hour" show this week.

'I think McGregor goes straight after him and tries to rough him up and tries to knock him out'.

Speaking to ES News, he said: "The world's gone insane".

Rios confirmed that he has never sparred with McGregor and interestingly claimed that he didn't even know who "The Notorious" was. I see him getting in, turning it into a fight and roughing Floyd up.

McGregor's team responded to the KO talk today and unsurprisingly they've strongly refuted the rumours. The phone's been blowing up.
