Earlier this week, Conor McGregor challenged Mark Wahlberg to a fight as a reaction to Justin Bieber challenging Tom Cruise to a celebrity scrap.
Well, one boxer isn’t taking too kindly to “Notorious” calling out Wahlberg.

Regis Prograis took to his Instagram account Friday and implored McGregor to forget about Wahlberg and fight him, instead.
“So, look, I’m hearing that Conor McGregor is trying to fight my man, Mark Wahlberg,” the newly-crowned WBA super lightweight champion said in his IG video after pummeling a makeshift heavybag consisting of suspended tires from a chain. “Look here – don’t call on no actors, dog. Call out a real fighter.”
Then, Prograis took things a step further, showing a willingness to not only box McGregor in the ring, but get in the Octagon with him for an MMA matchup, as well.
“We’ll do a two-fight deal,” he continued. “I’ll fight you in the ring first. I’m definitely gonna whoop your ass. Then, I’m going to fight you in the Octagon and I’m gonna whoop your ass in that. Don’t call out the actors. Call out a real world champion.
“Ima hurt your ass.”
@thenotoriousmma don’t call out an actor if you’re a real fighter. Matter of fact, don’t call out my manager. I’m probably the only world boxing champ who would fight in the ring and in octagon. @danawhite @audieattar #rougaroushit

Prograis called out the MMA superstar while preparing for his title-unification fight with IBF champion Josh Taylor. The two will face each other in the World Boxing Super Series final this fall.
