Floyd Mayweather Jr. Vows To Abstain From Sex Before The McGregor Fight

August 26, 2017). The fight will be contested over 12 rounds at 154 pounds with both men wearing eight ounce gloves.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission considered proposals from both fighters to swap down from 10oz equipment and granted special permission for this bout.

"If we're eight ounces, I'm struggling to give him two rounds, and that's the God's honest truth", McGregor said at the UFC Performance Center to gathered media. I am coming up in weight on the gloves.

McGregor typically uses 4oz fingerless gloves in MMA, while undefeated boxer Mayweather has used 8oz gloves in 46 of his 49 bouts. "Don't believe what you hear in the media". And I don't know what you want me to say about the guy. "I'm very happy with it", McGregor told reporters on a conference call. But most of the talk leading up to the bout is focused on McGregor and whether the UFC lightweight champion can make the move from the Octagon to the ring and be successful in his first pro boxing match.

At the end of the interview, Conan gifted McGregor a good luck charm by presenting him with a pair of boxing trunks with the red-haired host's face emblazoned on them, much to the Irishman's amusement.

The Commission's chairman Anthony Marnell did express his disappointment that the size of the gloves was a constant topic of debate in the promotion of the fight.

Both fighters submitted a waiver to the NSAC this month, requesting the smaller glove size.

From the beginning, McGregor has been pushing for the smallest gloves possible because smaller gloves have less padding and thus accentuate his significant punching power.

"For me, it's athlete versus athlete", McGregor said.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will go head to head on August 27. He has also worked other Mayweather fights in the past including his bouts against Juan Manuel Marquez and Marcos Maidana. He said the topic never came up in the negotiations for the fight as 10-ounce gloves were always what they figured they would fight with due to the Nevada rules.
