McGregor To Mayweather: I'm Prepared To Destroy You

UFC superstar Conor McGregor says he has no interest what size gloves five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. wears when they fight in Las Vegas and warned the legendary boxer: "I am coming sprinting at you with bricks."

Mayweather posted a message on Tuesday night, stating that both fighters could use 8-ounce gloves rather than the standard 10-ounce version for a super-welterweight bout when they step into the ring Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena.

Mayweather had written on the same social media platform: "Don't believe what you hear in the media. Don't believe what you hear on blog sites. If it's not coming directly from me, then it's not true. I'm telling McGregor, 'Let's fight in 8oz gloves'. McGregor can fight in any brand he prefers or chooses. I'll be wearing 8 oz Grant gloves. Whatever advantage McGregor needs to feel more comfortable in the ring, I'm willing to accommodate. Let's give the boxing and MMA fans what they want to see."

Of course, the Nevada State Athletic Commission put a quick stop to Mayweather's boast.

According to the rules of the NSAC, no boxers are capable of using gloves that are 8-ounces above the welterweight limit of 147. Because Mayweather and McGregor are scheduled to fight at the junior middleweight limit of 154, they are forced to use 10-ounce gloves and there is no way around that.

McGregor offered a curt response as he continued his preparations for the mega-money contest with another sparring session.

The Irishman posted a sparring picture on Instagram, with a caption that read, in part:

"I don't give a f*** about the size of the glove," which he preceded with, "We are prepared to destroy Floyd. Pick whatever size gloves you want as well little man. I fight with 4 oz."

He closes his comment by saying, "I am coming sprinting at you with bricks. Know that. Brittle hands."

[QUOTE=miniq;17914777]McGregor gets destroyed by all of Floyd's past 147 opponents. Connor is a young athlete and tremendous fighter...but boxing is still an artform and no amount of willpower and determination can overcome skill. Atleast he is actually coming to try…

[QUOTE=A-Wolf;17913358]McGregor is getting pretty corny at this point.[/QUOTE] Has Conor got any new material? He's been regurgitating the same sh*t for a while now. The King of talking a lot without saying much.
