Mixed martial arts promoter Dana White says it's no secret that Conor McGregor will try to outbox Floyd Mayweather Jr. when they meet inside the boxing ring on August 26.

Having been previously misreported in the media that Bradley Wheeler was, in fact, the man who KO'd the UFC lightweight champion, McGregor's team has clarified in communication to Telegraph Sport that neither Rios or Wheeler "have sparred with Conor".

"A lot of times, I sparred with them a lot during their training camps in Gleason's, but I was never a guy who was brought into camp as a sparring partner where I had to leave my house, where I had to leave home".

Speaking to ES News, he said: "The world's gone insane". I've been getting texts messages and calls about this.

Not one to take a diss lightly, 50 Cent took to Instagram to address the diss by uploading a video of McGregor's insult along with a caption reminding the corssover boxer of his actual competitor. "I got Floyd a gift", McGregor said.

Conor is going to get knocked out. "Floyd always live up to the hype, so never doubt him".

The pair finished their four-day promotional tour on Friday with a heated exchange at Wembley where McGregor referred to Mayweather as a 'stupid, baldy t***'. He's the greatest boxer I've ever seen. Making an appearance on "The MMA Hour", Malignaggi admitted that there's a slim chance McGregor will be able to pull off the upset and leave Las Vegas with a victory.

"So me, using my trash-talking ability that I have, me knowing that I'm one of the better known fighters in the business, I kind of put myself at the forefront", Malignaggi said.
