McGregor and Mayweather request smaller gloves

Floyd Mayweather Vs Conor McGregor Prediction

On that night, the 40-year-old undefeated boxer, Floyd Mayweather will step back into the ring after a two-year hiatus to face the tough-talking loudmouth and UFC superstar, Conor McGregor.

NSAC executive director Bob Bennett confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday that both fighters have submitted official requests to wear 8-ounce gloves for their junior middleweight fight on August 26 inside T-Mobile Arena.

The biggest names in combats sports are now in the final phases of their training camps, which are both taking place in 'Sin City'.

Mayweather is a heavy favourite for the fight, winning all of his 49 professional bouts. "I have to go to him", Mayweather told Smith, per ESPN.com.

Mayweather said McGregor enjoys a lot of advantages over him, despite the Irishman's lack of experience in pro boxing.

"I just thought about all of our different leaders - Martin Luther King, Malcolm X - that went on the frontline for me and all of my loved ones", he said. "The chairman and commissioners would make the determination with the health and safety of the fighters being the number-one priority". When you look at myself and Conor McGregor on paper, he's taller [McGregor is an inch taller], has a longer reach, he's a bigger man from top to bottom. They weren't pleased with the Pacquiao fight.

"Gervonta Davis is nothing short of pure boxing talent with dynamite power", said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions.

However, in the later part of his career, Mayweather has made his money and kept his record pristine by making his opponents miss, landing enough punches, and taking the fight to the judges scorecards. What if Conor McGregor lands a knockout shot and Mayweather loses.

Fast-forward two years later and the fight is now official and the size of its scope is apparent.

Floyd Mayweather hasn't forgotten about the racist comments Conor McGregor made during their worldwide press tour last month.

The Mayweather-McGregor bout will be available on Showtime pay-per-view at a cost of $89.95 ($99.95 for high definition).
