Malignaggi told The MMA Hour earlier this week: "I wouldn't say I'm going there to train him but I might be able to give him some technical titbits.

"I think Conor has a very capable training team, he has a team that understands him inside and outside the Octagon.

"I'll be going there to spar and if I see anything then of course I'll share my views."
