Mayweather officially offers to fight McGregor in smaller gloves

While a 7-pound disparity separates these two weight classes, 154-pound combatants are outfitted with 10-ounce gloves compared to their 147-pound counterparts. The mega bout will take place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather, who holds a flawless 49-0 fight record and won 12 world titles across five weight divisions, retired in 2015, having successfully defended his WBC, WBA (Super) and The Ring welterweight titles against Andre Berto.

"The Notorious" told reporters, in Brooklyn, two days later, that Mayweather had agreed to fight at 154lbs in order to secure the 10oz gloves stipulation.

McGregor is used to wearing 4-ounce fingerless gloves in his UFC bouts. Don't believe what you hear on blog sites, ' he wrote on his Instagram account. I'm telling McGregor, 'Let's fight in 8 oz gloves.' McGregor can fight in any brand he prefers or chooses.

'If it's not coming directly from me, then it's not true. Welterweights wear 8-ounce gloves. His motive for the change is uncertain, but for most MMA fans it must certainly be regarded as an advantage for McGregor. The bigger question is whether or not McGregor can land any of his big shots against Mayweather, who is widely recognized as one of the best defensive fighters in the history of the sport.
