Fans pay big money for Mayweather-McGregor tickets

Bennett added that McGregor's camp has not requested a specific referee for their 12-round, 154-pound boxing match August 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (Showtime Pay-Per-View; $99.95 in HD).

Malignaggi had labelled McGregor as a "scumbag" and "one of the biggest dirtbags I've ever met". The ropes kept him up multiple times.

"When you think about it, is that a bad thing, opening this thing up to a housewife in Idaho, Iowa, Kansas.is that a bad thing, for it to be accessible in Costco?" "And then the train just kind of rolls with it and it keeps picking up steam as the predictions keep coming true", he said. He was badly, badly concussed after those rounds. We were anxious about him. "I haven't experienced this in over three years on the job".

"Sparring partners who were [staying] in the house with him were anxious about him".

Rather, he has insisted video be released of the full 12-round affair so fans can see that he got the better of McGregor.

Malignaggi, who retired from boxing five months ago, walked out earlier this month after he said McGregor disrespected him in the ring and the dressing room and housed him and the other sparring partners in accommodations resembling a "crackhouse".

The 36-year-old Malignaggi said he agreed to become a sparring partner because he thought McGregor wanted to train with a high level boxer ahead of the Mayweather clash.

Despite whatever miscommunication there might have been between the two men, McGregor maintains that Malignaggi simply couldn't hang with him in the ring and left because of a hit to his ego.

"We're going to blow past our own record of $72 million; this fight is massive", Ellerbe said.

"Wait until you see when (Mayweather) falls - how you all write him off after this and he becomes like Aldo", McGregor told reporters at the UFC Performance Institute.

"What better way for a guy like him to exit under a load of questions and mysterious [circumstances]. I can say that after the fight is over on August 26, everyone is going to be happy". Let him watch, let him try and study, but you can not prepare for this. "It's okay. Let it go", a beaming McGregor said.

"I like it on this side, it's good", McGregor said with a smile.

Mayweather on Thursday called Malignaggi a friend.
