“Both camps have submitted a waiver by the date we requested, which was today,” Bennett told in an exclusive interview with ESPN.com.
Both teams will have to state their case for why they want to fight with the smaller gloves. Should the commission approve this, then they will vote on the matter.
“The commission will hear both camps’ reasoning as to why it should deviate from its regulations during a scheduled meeting on Aug. 16. Our chairman Anthony Marnell will then lead a conversation with the other commission members and they will vote on it that day,” commented Bennett.
