The dust has well and truly settled from the Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor super fight that took place in August, but there is one man that is still trying to remain relevant from the whole fiasco.

Of course, that man is Paulie Malignaggi.

The retired boxer surprisingly dominated a lot of the headlines going into the fight and following the fight, due to his frosty relationship with McGregor.

The former pro was hired by Notorious for his sparring ahead of his boxing debut, but it didn't take long for everything to turn sour, with Malignaggi eventually leaving the training camp due to those infamous photos.

Team McGregor posted a few images of the Irishman appearing to knock down Malignaggi during the sessions, and although the former denies that's what happened, he's clearly been rattled and frustrated by the whole saga.

Eventually, Malignaggi chose to leave the training camp, and since then he's refused to be silenced.

Twitter rants, interviews, and even a face-to-face confrontation with McGregor at the Las Vegas arrival party have all happened since the fall out, and Malignaggi isn't happy for it to settle there.

The former boxer is still pushing for a fight with McGregor, but he didn't entertain the UFC fighter's request of doing it inside the octagon.

In fact, he pretty much laughed it off.

However, he's still clearly not over the saga, and he's made it very clear once again with his latest activity on Twitter.

A boxing fan asked him a simple question: "How many rounds do you think you'd win against Mayweather?", but instead of giving a proper answer, he used the opportunity to take another swipe at McGregor, or as he likes to call him, 'McQuitter'.

He quoted the question and replied by saying: "I'll put it this way, Floyd would've actually TRAINED to fight me as opposed to preparing the way he did for McQuitter."

So, it's safe to say Malignaggi is still not McGregor's biggest fan, and nor is he over the sparring sessions they endured together.

Maybe he needs to just accept it and move on, as it's starting to annoy a lot of boxing fans who see it as a way to try and stay relevant and in the headlines.
