Surprising rule switch completely changes McGregor-Mayweather

Conor McGregor celebrates an early major victory over Floyd Mayweather on Wednesday, when the Nevada State Athletic Commission abolish its own rules regarding glove size.

All fighters over 147 pounds must wear 10-ounce gloves, according to Nevada’s boxing rules. Showtime’s Mayweather and McGregor pay-per-view super-fight on August 27 will be fighting in the weight-class of junior middleweight limit of 154 pounds.

However, both of them submitted an official appeal to the commission expressing their desire to fight in a smaller, 8oz gloves.

Surprisingly, the NSAC agreed to the both camp’s request and granted an exception to its own rule.

Anthony Marnell, the chairman of the Commission said he is comfortable with the fighters using small gloves. However, he’s sad because they made this issue, a way to sell their fight more especially on the social media.

“I do not like the Nevada State Athletic Commission being used as a pawn in a social media battle,” Marnell said.

Following that war between Mayweather and McGregor, glove size has been a sustained issue.

From the start, McGregor is always pushing the smallest gloves possible because smaller gloves have less padding and it’s more damaging with his punching power. McGregor already made a name in UFC, with spectacular knockouts that he delivered with the traditional 4oz gloves.

Motivated by McGregor’s insult, Mayweather publicly voiced that he’d fight him with smaller gloves, safe in the knowledge of Nevada’s own rules that would assure his safety.

McGregor was also known for making wild predictions about his fights and frequently end up being true, as he said that eight-ounce gloves would be the end of Mayweather.

McGregor said at his media workout, “If we’re 8ozs, I would struggle to give him two rounds. That’s the God’s honest truth.” The reason why two rounds are that the referee will stop him from pounding Mayweather’s head into the canvas. As Mayweather has his 10 seconds to recover. That’s the only reason he might get to the second round, McGregor stated.
