Conor McGregor Accidentally Starts The Latest Internet Craze
Nevada boxing regulators gave the green light for the fighters to use eight-ounce gloves, as opposed to usually mandated ten-ounce gloves used in their weight class. The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Wednesday agreed to allow the fighters to use 8-ounce gloves. "Pretty confident. It's something Conor wanted, something Floyd wanted, and both fighters got exactly what they wanted".
McGregor, who is also known for making wild predictions about his fights that often end up being true, said last week that the eight-ounce gloves would be the end of Mayweather.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NAC) confirmed a one-off rule change to drop the glove size from 10oz. But I'm just telling you he made the right decision for his health, because it was a 12-round straight ass-whooping.
"There is no way in hell that I am not ready to fight in the deepest of trenches in this contest. Usually, I fight with gloves four ounces, and my joints are nearly not covered", explained the fighter of 29 years old. This will be beneficial for both of us.
Mayweather has fought the majority of his boxing career wearing 8oz gloves and is completely comfortable in doing so.

Several other people held signs that read "PEACE" and "We The People SAY NO" in white font against a Pride flag. Then, taking pains to insist "as I said on Saturday", Trump denounced the hate groups and called for unity.
"Floyd wants him to have every advantage possible that he can have". I will go straight forward and put him away inside four rounds. On the call, White said that the fight is tracking to be the biggest ever on pay-per-view. "Yes, Floyd will be faster with 8-ounce gloves, but he's more defensive". Connor hits like a truck. "I think it absolutely does [work in McGregor's favor]".
McGregor, who is widely seen as a massive underdog against undefeated former welterweight king Mayweather, predicted an early finish to the fight.
"The current featherweight champion is Max Holloway, a man I dismantled", added McGregor.
At the meeting, the commission also officially approved the licenses for Mayweather and McGregor for the fight taking place in less than two weeks time. He has said he will wear the same Grant brand gloves he always wears.
