    Default 8 ounce gloves being requested by Floyd/McGregor: rules say 10 ounce!

    Direct violation of Nevada State Athletic Commission.

    Can't believe Floyd is pushing for this. MMA wear 4 ounce mitts FFS.

    If Floyd gets hit on that ***CHANDELIER*** its •°•°•°•°•°•°•°good night irene•°•°•°•°•°•°•

    Plus ````````__________BLOOD________`````````

    This has been discussed and we concluded that Floyd knows full well it will not be granted and is only pretending he wants it.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    This fight is so God damned retarded.....this is like if the India Cricket team played the Boston Red Sox in baseball. It would be like the All Blacks or the Springboks took on the New England Patriots in Football.


    IT WILL NOT BE CLOSE UNLESS FLOYD WANTS IT TO BE CLOSE.



    I don't blame Connor for taking the fight because it'll be amazing amounts of money for him, but he's going to be embarrassed and it's an embarrassment for Floyd to even allow this fight to happen. All this fight does is show off what a cheap troll Floyd Mayweather Jr is.

    I'm with you 100% on the first half of your post, but if it's ok for MacGregor to take the dough, then surely the same applies to Mayweather, no?
    As far as I'm concerned, they're both a pair of twats, but I don't blame them, I blame every single person (including me) who are making this fight relevant by talking about it!
    You had the right idea boycotting it, but nobody's got the balls or common sense to follow that.

    The UFC takes it's cut from it's fighters ergo all of their fighters pretty much have a ceiling of how much they will make in boxing you don't have that, you have individual promoters and guys promoting themselves which Floyd does and has done quite well to him as a businessman......HOWEVER....Floyd should be getting this big of a payday for fighting NOT a boxer in a BOXING match? There's my issue with it.


    Make money all day long, do it up! Flash the cash, go wild! Be the biggest Money May you can ever be.......but don't be looking my way when the conversation turns to All-Time greats.




    This fight doesn't make Floyd a great boxer it makes him a great con artist. The only risk he's taking is that people WON'T be dumb enough to buy the fight but he's getting paid regardless so this is quite possibly the EASIEST MONEY a boxer has ever or will ever make.

    Didn't Margarito and Cotto wear 8oz gloves for their first fight? Cotto and De La Hoya made Floyd wear big gloves if my memory serves me.

    154 used to have the option betweeon 10 or 8 I believe. Cotto/Margarita 1 definitely would have been in 8s because it was at 147

    For some strange reason McGregor thinks with smaller gloves it will halve the time he sparkos Floyd.

    It's actually worse than that.


    It's like the Patriots finishing an undefeated 16-0 season, then claiming that beating the Springboks makes them 17-0.

    Yeah, he said he'll do it in four in 10oz gloves
    And it'll only take two if he's wearing 8oz gloves
    Apparently 2oz equal two rounds in Conor's world.

    He actually believes he's going to shock the world
    And show us all something new. I thought he was here to get paid
    But he actually believes what he says (I think) and that's worse.

    I saw him working the heavybag and it was fucking embarrasing
    He had his hands low and his head high and he was dancing around the bag
    I don't think he expects to get hit back and he's in for a shock.

    How many punches has he actually taken in his career?
    Wonder how he'll respond to getting hit 40 times per round
    This fight is not going the distance!

    Floyd will wait and tire Conor out and slowly take him apart. Even Olympic boxers who have trained for years do not start their boxing career with a 12 round contest and they are super fit. What chance has someone who has never boxed before? None. It is absurd.

    Floyd should be ashamed of himself.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
