McGregor and Mayweather to fight in 8-ounce gloves

Posted August 18, 2017

McGregor asserted Mayweather has never faced a standup fighter like him being a MMA veteran.

The showdown will be kicking off in the cinema as 11.45pm, with tickets costing €20 - not bad at all at all.

According to White, the estimate for total pay-per-view buys is around 4.9 million, which is 300,000 more buys than for the record-setting fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

The Bleacher Report suggested part of this could be due to McGregor's attention-making antics during the two fighters' four-city promotional tour, including some dicey dialogue between them.

"I think, if McGregor stops him early, he'll win in the first three rounds".

James Williams, CEO of Mayweather Boxing & Fitness, told FOX Business in addition to brick and mortar locations, the brand will also launch a mobile app and an in-home Virtual Reality experience featuring Mayweather himself.

McGregor's latest comments came with the ruling by the Nevada State Athletic Commission to allow the fighters to use eight-ounce gloves instead of 10-ounce gloves.

The president said eliminating "the consultants" and having one lead agency for each infrastructure project would be the key. He says, "You're just adding a new layer of confusion and bureaucracy to existing problems".

"I'm ready to go to war for the full 12 rounds and I am ready to put him away in the first 10 seconds".

"That's it in a nutshell, you've got pros and cons on both sides", he said. Will I be watching the fight? Yes.

If you've been planning to have your very own McGregor party for the big fight next Saturday and ordering in the live viewing from Sky Sports, we're here to say don't bother.

For me the most disappointing aspect is the fact that what promises to be a landmark occasion for boxing on 16 September has been overshadowed and is in danger of sailing by unnoticed by casual and would-be fans due to the money train and media circus that is Mayweather versus McGregor. "I get it. I'm coming in, I understand where it's at, I'm just looking forward to proving what I'm saying and earning my respect in this game also".

"He's a lot younger". And I'm in my 40s. Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor were promoting their upcoming rematch when Diaz walked out of the room.
