Wow! Mayweather, McGregor Get Approval For 8-Ounce Gloves

A almost seven-figure bet on Floyd Mayweather in his upcoming boxing match with MMA's Conor McGregor is presumed to be the largest to date on the fight. According to the NSAC, fights above 147 pounds require 10 ounce gloves.

UFC champion McGregor will step away from the octagon and into the ring to face unbeaten boxer Mayweather in Las Vegas.

Still, Mark Shapiro, the co-president of WME/IMG, whose company owns UFC, said that ticket sales had already generated over $60 million and that it was impossible that they would not break the record of $72.2 million set by the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. But by in large, Floyd has always used eight ounce gloves and he hasn't really knocked anybody out in more than ten years - except Ricky Hatton. "I believe first-round KO in 8-ounce gloves".

The Nevada State Athletic Commission approved a rule change on August 16 that will allow the fighters to use eight ounce gloves rather than the agreed 10 ounce gloves in the fight contract.

It will see two incredible fighters, both now in their prime, pit themselves against each other in a sport that they have dedicated their lives to since they were children to establish who will be crowned the true unified and undisputed king of the middleweight division. "I do not see him absorbing the blows in the first few rounds, but we are ready for absolutely every scenario". I'm not sure what Conor is going to be using. I know there's talk of an interim belt. If the fight were to take place under MMA rules, McGregor would surely dominate, but it's Queensberry rules. Not only has Mayweather never been beaten in 49 career fights, but he's only suffered one official knockdown in his entire career.

Bryd has only taking charge of one previous Mayweather fight - the American's unanimous decision win over Robert Guerrero in May 2013.

She is a respected boxing referee herself and has also worked as a MMA judge since 2006, judging at high-profile events including UFC 196 (when Nate Diaz stunned McGregor) and UFC 202 (when McGregor seized his revenge).
