McGregor happy that he is a light glove should be used against Mayweather
Conor McGregor is pleased that he has received permission to be with his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather lighter gloves to use.
“I don’t believe that Mayweather with these lighter gloves the end of the second round is going to catch up,” says McGregor. The UFC champion responded Thursday to questions from journalists including the BBC in a conference call.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NAC) that the titanenduel organizes, recently gave permission for the battle gloves of eight ounce (226 grams) to use. Gloves of ten ounce (283 grams) is usually the minimum weight at boksduels.
The lighter gloves have less protection around the knuckles, allowing boxers that harder punches in the advantage.
McGregor used in the MMA invariably gloves 4 ounce, while Mayweather in the majority of its 49 boksduels gloves 8 ounce bore.

McGregor says to be ready for the lucrative fight, at the end of this month, taking place in Las Vegas. “I am able to twelve rounds long war if it is necessary, but it can also be within a few seconds have passed for him. I’m willing to get deep in the trenches to crawl.”
“A part of me wants a beautiful show and it slowly off, but I see him actually, not all the blows to cash.”
