Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor might get their wishes.
Recently Mayweather posted on Instagram that he is willing to fight McGregor with smaller 8 ounce gloves. McGregor immediately accepted since smaller gloves would benefit him more. The original agreement states that both fighters will wear 10 ounce gloves but the Nevada State Athletic Commission will now vote on the matter.
Nevada State regulations say that any fight beyond the 147 pound limit must utilize 10 ounce gloves. The bout between Mayweather and McGregor is happening at 154 pounds.
Commission’s Executive Director Bob Bennett explained to ESPN.com what will happen during the process.
