Mayweather Challenges Conor to Fight in 8oz. Gloves

There is No Bigger Fish to Fry

With less than a month to go until the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather superfight set to take place on August 26th, things have taken a rather unexpected turn in the form of details that need to be ironed out.

During the first stop of the Mayweather vs. McGregor world tour recently in Los Angeles, Conor McGregor stated that Mayweather was putting restrictions on the rules for eligible gloves for the fight.

Mayweather addressed those accusations in a social media post today, saying:

“Don’t believe what you hear in the media. Don’t believe what you hear on blog sites. If it’s not coming directly from me, then it’s not true. I’m telling McGregor, “Let’s fight in 8 oz gloves”. McGregor can fight in any brand he prefers or chooses. I’ll be wearing 8 oz Grant gloves. Whatever advantage McGregor needs to feel more comfortable in the ring, I’m willing to accommodate. Let’s give the boxing and MMA fans what they want to see.

Given McGregor bringing the issue up in the first place, the odds of the lightweight champ firing back at Mayweather are extremely high.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
