NSAC Defend Mayweather McGregor Gloves Ruling

NSAC Defend Mayweather McGregor Gloves Ruling

Having previously expressed his desire to fight Floyd Mayweather in studio in a previous appearance on the Conan O'Brien show, McGregor assured the host that he will be "going down in the history books" following his meeting with the undefeated Mayweather on Saturday week. According to the NSAC, fights above 147 pounds require 10 ounce gloves.

The bout which is all set for the 26th of August at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas is highly anticipated in positive and negative light's across the boxing spectrum.

Using eight-ounce gloves is nothing new for Mayweather.

Last week he told ESPN: "If we are in eight-ounce gloves, [Mayweather] will be floored multiple times in the first round".

Let me set the record straight: I'm not against the Mayweather versus McGregor event taking place.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has confirmed a one-off rule change to allow the men to wear eight-ounce gloves, rather than the standard ten-ounce, for fights at 154lb, despite opposition from medical experts in the ARP (Association of Ringside Physicians). Even though NSCA regulations require 10-ounce gloves for any bout above the welterweight limit of 147 pounds, an exception will be made for next week's 154-pound fight.

Wow! Mayweather, McGregor Get Approval For 8-Ounce Gloves
Not only has Mayweather never been beaten in 49 career fights, but he's only suffered one official knockdown in his entire career. UFC champion McGregor will step away from the octagon and into the ring to face unbeaten boxer Mayweather in Las Vegas .

We want to take him seriously but when someone is dressed like a dodgy uncle in the '80s selling used auto parts on the side for an extra pit of cash, it's hard to hear anything they say.

It's gonna be an all night affair, with the fight scheduled to finish at 7.10am on Sunday morning so stock up on snacks and coffee and eh, maybe more snacks.

"I think it affects the contest a lot", White said. "I use it as motivation and I look forward to going in and educating the world on what martial arts is".

"He's possibly the biggest, the fastest growing sportsman in the world, that I have seen in my lifetime, I have never seen a rapid rise like it in my life".

That fight marked McGregor's biggest payday to date, pocketing him $3m.

"I do not foresee him absorbing the blows in the first two rounds". In addition, Conor has limited boxing experience himself.
