Conor McGregor releases statement on glove change, shortens Floyd Mayweather KO prediction

Conor McGregor releases statement on glove change, shortens Floyd Mayweather KO prediction”

THE Nevada State Athletic Commission has handed Conor McGregor a major early victory over Floyd Mayweather, overturning its own rules regarding glove size. The decision was made Wednesday morning in a meeting at the Commission after requests from both McGregor and Mayweather, Jr.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will wear smaller eight-ounce gloves for their fight on Aug. 26, going against the recommendation of The Association of Ringside Physicians (ARP).

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) typically competes in four-ounce gloves in the UFC but was initially faced with the prospect of fighting Mayweather (49-0 boxing) in 10-ounce gloves. He'll be calling the action as part of the Sky Sports Box Office team, and he can't wait. I'll be wearing 8 oz Grant gloves.

Conor McGregor believes he will knock out Floyd Mayweather inside two rounds but is ready for all scenarios when the two fighters clash in their eagerly anticipated superfight next week.

Malignaggi left the training camp and has since continued to berate McGregor for his behaviour, fuelling bad blood between the pair, and now it is clear that the 36-year-old has an ulterior motive. Alternative gloves not selected for the bout will be donated to the NSAC's study. Fingerless gloves. The knuckles are barely covered in what I'm used to. With a reputation for an impressive roster of high-profile artists and DJs, it should come as no surprise that the Highline Ballroom boasts state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, and a DJ stage with dazzling visual display.

After hearing the arguments from both representatives, the commission passed a one-time waiver allowing the use of 8oz gloves for the bout set at 154lbs.

"It's certainly motivating - the disrespect and disregard for my skillset", added McGregor. "Smaller gloves favor him big time".

Ellerbe is not the only person who says the fight will end in a knockout.

In addition to regular inspections, Marnell, as well as other commission members, will inspect each fighter's gloves prior to the fight.

"If we are in 8-ounce gloves, he will be floored multiple times in the first round", McGregor said. "This is the most distributed event in pay-per-view history", White said, also citing the additional digital reach.
