After the 6 rounds were done, we ended up doing a couple more.
"To say a mixed martial artist is coming into boxing and wouldn't be awkward is an understatement", Malignaggi said.
Malignaggi spoke to ESPN since the photo surfaced and discussed the eight round sparring session.
"Do you think Conor McGregor, in my prime, is better than me?!"
Malignaggi's assessment came after he spent 8 rounds sparring with the Irish fighter who is lined up to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26.

In the meantime, Abbas is in touch with Arab and worldwide leaders to try to "prevent a deterioration of the situation", it said. The security measure was implemented after two Israeli border police officers were killed in an attack at the site on Friday.
Malignaggi said his code is for sparring details to stay in the gym and they both did their share of sh*t talking and showboating. Mayweather and McGregor just embarked on a world wide tour to promote the fight and the trash talking left little to be desired. In the end, you look back on it was kind of fun. He's got a game plan.
The idea of McGregor spending time in the ring with the former champion was intriguing enough on it's own, but "The Notorious" had added extra spice to the occasion during his whirlwind press tour with Floyd Mayweather last week when he indicated that he had a score to settle with Malignaggi.
"The division, it's hard to find somebody that wants to fight these days, and so that's relevant I guess to some extent, and so now I think I'm finally zeroed in and I'm gonna make something happen here shortly".
"This is a fight of moments, and I think he can give himself certain moments".
McGregor, who has yet to fight a single round of pro boxing, is seen as a huge underdog against Mayweather, known as one of the best defensive specialists in the sport's history. "There's a method to Conor's madness". Whether that can be effective is up to him, but he's no dummy!'
