In any case, while the first understanding called for 10-ounce gloves, Mayweather as of late appealed to McGregor to have the size downsized to eight ounces.
"We should battle in 8 oz gloves," Mayweather composed on Instagram. "I'll be wearing 8oz. Allow gloves. McGregor can battle in any brand he lean towards or picks. Whatever favorable position McGregor needs to feel more great in the ring, I'm willing to suit."
Gloves utilized as a part of blended combative techniques (MMA) extend in the vicinity of four and six ounces, while boxing gloves can go as low as eight ounces and as high as 20 ounces; nonetheless, anything underneath 147 pounds is limited to eight ounces in "Wrongdoing City."

Not that McGregor cares.
"Pick whatever size gloves you need also little man," the Irishman composed on Instagram. "I battle with 4oz. I don't give a f*ck about the span of the glove. I am coming run at you with blocks. Realize that. Weak hands."
