NSAC Set To Vote On Eight-Ounce Gloves For Conor McGregor vs

10 August 2017

Floyd Mayweather has opened up on his realistic chances against UFC champion Conor McGregor, as boxing's biggest fight in history approaches.

The MMA master said: "I am proud to announce my 2 year residency with @WynnNightlife!"

The BIG3 League agreed to move its championship from T-Mobile Arena to the MGM Grand to accommodate the megafight.

Despite McGregor having no professional boxing experience and many experts believing he will get outclassed by Mayweather over 12 rounds, the former multi-division champion seems to think otherwise...or at least that's what he's saying.

Manchester United Are Not After Gareth Bale Anymore, Says Jose Mourinho
United got one back when Keylor Navas spilled Nemanja Matic's 20-yard strike and Romelu Lukaku knocked home the rebound. We gave them a fight but have reasons to leave optimistic and proud.

Remember Mayweather's fight with Ricky Hatton all those years ago?

He continued: "I didn't say I couldn't fight".

Prior to defeating Berto, Mayweather defeated fellow boxing legend Manny Pacquiao in May 2015.

Mayweather is coming out of retirement for the fight against McGregor.

Franklin becomes first hurricane of the season
The agency said the season has the potential to become "extremely active", possibly the most active since 2010. Maximum sustained winds are now recorded at near 70mph (110 km/h), with higher gusts.

According to the NSAC director, both Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have submitted official requests to have the glove size reduced for their junior middleweight fight on August 26 and now, the Commission is set to vote on the application. A fighter like Andre Berto isn't even supposed to go the distance with Floyd Mayweather. And three weeks later, De La Hoya's doing a hell of a fight, (Gennady) Golovkin and (Canelo) Alvarez.

The worst comment that McGregor made and pretty much got away without backlash was the Rocky 3 "dancing monkey" comment made backstage at "Jimmy Kimmel Live".

See the rest of Mayweather's interview above. McGregor was almost a 10/1 underdog when the fight began to seem like a possibility in November, and his odds are down to +375. Mayweather was a -3000 favorite. The world has been waiting for a longtime for an event of the magnitude of the Mayweather vs. McGregor mega-bout. As we draw nearer to the fight, it's clear there's a line being drawn in the sand. Anything can happen during a boxing match, and there have been shocking upsets in the past. Mayweather winning by decision is settled at about +175.

Arguments in favor of smaller gloves will have to be weighed against potential concerns regarding fighter health and safety, which Bennett recently told ESPN is of the "utmost importance to this commission". "This is for a cause", he said. As for Mayweather, he'll go for a flawless 50-0 record to close his career.
