Mayweather and McGregor will fight in smaller gloves

Mayweather and McGregor will fight in smaller gloves

Konstantin, a 24-year-old teacher, recently received an email from a member of McGregor's management team that informed him McGregor enjoyed the song and had two tickets for Konstantin to attend to the fight next weekend.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission ruling on gloves added a dimension that the fight is a sanctioned boxing match, in addition to a made-for-whatever-goes Vegas event, and that McGregor was coming to the ring as a boxer, not a UFC mixed martial arts cage fighter.

The screening at both cinemas begins at 11.45pm on Saturday, August 26, with the fight expected to get underway in the early hours of Sunday morning. McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion, wears 4-ounce gloves for MMA.

They will fight in 8-ounce gloves. "If we are in 8-ounce gloves, he will be floored multiple times in the first round", he said.

Bannon added that "the economic war with China is everything", arguing the U.S. needs to be "maniacally focused on that". Bannon approved of the president's approach, said officials in the administration who asked not to be named.

The glove size argument started two weeks ago on Instagram when Mayweather posted that he wanted to give McGregor an advantage in the fight by reducing the glove size.

"I don't believe with the new gloves he makes it out of the second round", said McGregor. Chairman Anthony Marnell did say he was upset that Mayweather and McGregor had used the commission for promotion on social media. "They both great in what they do, they have balls and rackets, but they're very different sports".

"He's a lot younger. So, if you look at everything on paper, it leans toward Conor McGregor".
