Vasyl Lomachenko Offers Sparring Services to Conor McGregor

(Conor McGregor celebrates his win over Dustin Poirier after their featherweight fight during the UFC 178 event inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 27, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada)

Conor McGregor is now in final preparations for his daunting August 26th boxing match in Las Vegas against Floyd Mayweather and finds himself without a chief sparring partner.

His main sparring partner and former world champion Paulie Malignaggi quit the training camp this past weekend after been angered by leaked pictures on social media.

He’s since released some statements about McGregor that clearly show his dislike for the Irishman as a person.

On the same weekend, the man who many now regard as the current pound for pound best boxer in the world Vasyl Lomachenko recorded his latest win live on ESPN.

He’s offered McGregor the chance for him to step into Malignaggi’s shoes if he’s in need of a new sparring partner:

Straight away those within boxing know what would happen if the two ever came near each other in a boxing ring but in a way, it could be a good move for McGregor if he really wants to get some final last minute sweet science tips before his fight with Mayweather.

All be it potentially brutal ones.

One would imagine Lomachenko would take it easy on him though, and that his offer of sparring would be seen as a good publicity move for the Ukraine native – who failed to record big TV ratings on ESPN this past weekend.

Time will tell of McGregor takes up the offer from one of the modern day boxing geniuses of the current era (hat tip Reznick):

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
