The Nevada State Athletic Commission has commented on Floyd Mayweather’s recent rule change suggestion. Mayweather has stated that he’s willing to let Conor McGregor use 8 ounce gloves and he would also fight using the smaller gloves.
“These regulations are in place for the health and safety of the athletes, which is of the utmost importance to the commission. Our regulations already outline the appropriate glove size according to contracted weight of a fight,” said Executive Director Bob Bennett according to ESPN.
This basically means that NSAC will not allow the suggested rule change. Both fighters will fight using 10 ounce gloves as per the original agreement.
