Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor betting preview

18 August 2017

A big change has been announced for the hyped Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor megafight. Accordingly, "all fighters over 147 pounds must wear 10-ounce gloves".

The bout which is all set for the 26th of August at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas is highly anticipated in positive and negative light's across the boxing spectrum.

Although Mayweather has been used to generating hundreds of millions of dollars from a single fight, this is new territory for White and McGregor - the previous pay-per-view sales record was 1.65m for the Irishman's rematch with Nate Diaz a year ago.

"The move to allow lighter gloves came as a surprise as the 154lbs bout is considerably over the 147lbs limit at which eight-ounce gloves can be used". I don't believe he will even exit the first round, but I'm trying to be humble on national TV.

"I'm ready to go to war for the full 12 rounds and I'm ready to put him away in the first 10 seconds, so that's where my head is at".

"We've seen a shift in the fitness industry in that the average consumer is seeking access to the same training that elite athletes have available", James Williams, CEO of Mayweather Boxing & Fitness, said in the release.

It's a two-ounce difference with a ton of talk.

McGregor addressed Paulie Malignaggi's comments again, simply saying that the former champion got his "a** whipped" and if he wants to fight he would be more than willing to take him on. "I'm very happy with it", McGregor told reporters during a conference call.

She is a respected boxing referee herself and has also worked as a MMA judge since 2006, judging at high-profile events including UFC 196 (when Nate Diaz stunned McGregor) and UFC 202 (when McGregor seized his revenge).

Somehow, though, this fight is the one that continues to hold the media and public's attention, with people from all walks of life gathering for it.
