McGregor: With 8-Ounce Gloves - Mayweather Lasts Two Rounds!

According to UFC superstar Conor McGregor, the Nevada State Athletic Commission could change the entire landscape of his upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs).

Next week, the NSAC will make a ruling on the two athletes submitting separate requests to use 8-ounce gloves for their scheduled showdown.

Mayweather-McGregor takes place at the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds. Pursuant to the rules of the NSAC, any contest taking place above the welterweight limit must have 10-ounce gloves in use.

The contest takes place on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

A few weeks ago, McGregor made a bold prediction of stopping Mayweather in four rounds.

If the NSAC approves the request to use 8-ounce gloves, McGregor predicts a brutal two-round knockout.

“If we’re 8-ounces, I’m struggling to give him two rounds, and that’s the God’s honest truth,” McGregor said. “The only reason I maybe give him two rounds is because in this game the referee stops me from pounding his head into the canvas, and he has 10 seconds to recover. That’s the only reason why he might get to the second round.”

Mayweather, 40 years old, is coming out of retirement to do the fight. He's been out of the ring since September 2015, after dominating Andre Berto over twelve rounds at the MGM Grand. If Mayweather comes out on top, he will secure his 50th professional win and surpass the 49-0 record of heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano.

This will be Mayweather's fourth contest at the junior middleweight limit - after previously defeating former world champions Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto, and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez at the weight.

For McGregor, he will be making his professional debut as a boxer. Although he's widely regarded as one of the best mixed martial arts combatants in the world, most anticipate Mayweather will dominate their contest from start to finish.

Why is McGregor acting like he knows the difference between 10 and 8oz gloves when he's never fought in either himself? Yet he thinks 2 ounces takes 2 rounds off? how did he conclude this with zero experience of either…

McGregor better hope they don't do 8 ounce gloves. He's going to wind up in the hospital.
