Mayweather officially offers to fight McGregor in smaller gloves

Mayweather officially offers to fight McGregor in smaller gloves

'Whatever advantage McGregor needs to feel more comfortable in the ring, I'm willing to accommodate.

Mayweather vs. McGregor goes down live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada later this month (August 26, 2017). "He's a southpaw. He does a lot of awkward movements, and I really believe he thinks it's going to make a big difference in the fight".

Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s "Money" era fights have been mostly contested at welterweight, but twice before, the former boxing pound-for-pound king ventured up to junior middleweight.

The world boxing champion was not tickled with this subtle jab; after bragging about his fee being much larger than McGregor's, Mayweather then encouraged his fans to boo the handsome Celtic fighter. "Make things awkward, and jump in from different angles".

"When he was fighting in [U.K. -based promotion] Cage Warriors, winning two titles there, people said".

The sports broadcasting giant had been battling it out with ITV and BT Sport, with the latter said to have the upper hand due to their links with UFC. "I honestly don't. I don't think anybody realizes what is coming".

"It was the real thing, I had to stop the action, say, 'You guys are a little out of control here, you've got to stop this.' You know, they got a little rough", Cortez told Rush 93.

The latest word on McGregor's very serious, not at all overblown training regimen comes through Joe Cortez, a veteran boxing referee who was brought in by the McGregor camp to teach the MMA fighter what the rules of boxing are.

"They were both roughing each other up and I had to stop the action like in a regular fight". Understand? I don't want to take any points from either one of you.
