The Nevada state athletic rulebook states that all fights above the 147 pound limit mandate 10 ounce gloves due to fighter safety. Mayweather and McGregor will fight at super welterweight(154 lbs). The commission voted against their own rule.
OFFICIAL: Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place in 8-ounce gloves. NSAC makes a one-time exception on its own rule. Wow.
