I just hope he at least lasts a few rounds. Meanwhile I will enjoy Conor whopping his ass in the pressers.

If Conor wins, we are living in a simulation.

Does it really matter?

Financially speaking both are winners.

I mean realistically both might get $100 mil or more?!

Obviously I want Conor to win as well.

Of course it matters. If Conor wins, it will be the single greatest moment/accomplishment in sports history IMO. The man has already done some incredible things, all while telling the world exactly what he's going to do. If he beats Floyd, the world should just explode. That's it.

Nevada commission to vote on lighter gloves for Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor


Conor McGregor could be wearing 8-ounce gloves, rather than the traditional 10-ouncers, against Floyd Mayweather. Esther Lin, Showtime The possibility of lighter gloves in Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor are no longer just talk.
The Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) will vote on whether or not to allow the two men to wear 8-ounce gloves for their boxing match at a meeting Aug. 16, executive director Bob Bennett confirmed with MMA Fighting on Wednesday. Bennett said both McGregor and Mayweather want lighter gloves for their bout Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena.
The news was first reported by Sky Sports (h/t BoxingScene.com).

The commission rule, which is mostly universal in boxing, is that fighters who compete at 147 pounds and above cannot wear 8-ounce gloves. The standard for those bouts is 10-ounce gloves, which Mayweather and McGregor previously agreed to. Mayweather and McGregor are fighting at 154 pounds.
Under NAC regulations, 8-ounce gloves are used for fights at 135 pounds and below. In bouts between 135 and 147 pounds, 10-ounce gloves are traditionally used, but 8-ounce gloves can be worn if both sides agree. Anything over 147 pounds, it’s 10-ounce gloves.
However, Bennett confirmed with MMA Fighting last week that if both teams come before the commission and explain why they want smaller gloves, they could be issued a waiver after a vote.
“They would have to come before the commission and articulate why they should be permitted to have their fight using 8-ounce gloves,” Bennett said. "The chairman (Anthony Marnell) and commissioners would make the determination with the health and safety of the fighters being the number-one priority.”
Bennett said last week that Mayweather’s team reached out to him about the process in which they would go about making the glove size lighter. And now it appears both sides are moving forward with trying to get the fight contested with 8-ounce gloves, rather than 10.

this fight is gonna suck worse than pac-mayweather. it will be the letdown of the century because mcgregor can't box and mayweather is the most boring boxer alive, and boxing as we know it will finally be "dead" to the public.

Well you can't say this was boring. Definitely an exciting fight, especially for the casuals. Best Floyd fight in several years.

I vastly overestimated McGregor. Dude sucks so fucking bad that Floyd literally played with him the last 7 rounds. He could have finished the fight in the 3rd if he wanted to. Pathetic. You're right though, at least since McGregor was so fucking dismal, Floyd was able (willing) to move around a lot more and play around instead of just practicing defensive point-scoring all night.

I haven't seen anybody else say that... everyone I've seen thinks this was an embarrassment to boxing and Floyd.

Exactly.

Floyd fought his fight, and beat him...badly.

I'll concede that Floyd played his gameplan and a lot of Conor's success was part of Floyd's plan but if he did as badly as you say, then its embarrassing that it took Floyd 10 rounds to get him out of there. Conor did better than Floyd and a lot of people thought he would. Although we saw everything Conor had and if he boxes anyone else, he'll get smoked since he no longer has that upperhand of not knowing how he boxes.

On the flip side of this, Floyd likely wanted to be 100% sure that Conor was gassed. Why risk losing at all if you can just be patient.

As soon as Floyd started turning it up, he was trying to finish him. Around the 5th or 6th round I'd say. It took him at least 4 rounds of actively trying to finish a tired Conor. And Conor even arguably won the 8th round. It's kind of surprising people are shitting all over his performance. He did very well for a man with no professional boxing matches. But anyone who truly thought he was going to win and was shocked by the outcome was pretty delusional.
