Eddie Alvarez Clarifies Comments Regarding Floyd Mayweather - Conor McGregor

After Mayweather vs. McGregor, will it be Bisping vs. Bellew?

For the past 12 months, a super fight between five-time boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and reigning UFC lightweight and former featherweight champion Conor McGregor has been one of, if not the most discussed topics in sports. The fact I can't follow through in MMA and pound the head into the canvas and there's a 10-count in boxing, maybe I'll give him second round. "The lighter gloves have less padding over the knuckles and are believed to favour the heavier puncher", says the BBC. Floyd typically fights in 8oz gloves with three exceptions - "Canelo", Miguel Cotto and Oscar De La Hoya - because he usually fights at welterweight [147lbs].

"Our sport is being shown so little respect that people believe that this man can just come in from a completely different sport and beat the greatest fighter of our era", Bellew, who like Manuwa is a Betsafe ambassador, said.

On Wednesday (16 August), the Nevada Athletic Commission approved the use of 8-ounce gloves for next week's fight, after representatives from both camps had requested an exemption to a rule requiring 10-ounce gloves.

"We've seen a shift in the fitness industry, in that the average consumer is seeking access to the same training that elite athletes have available, and more studios and gyms are now dedicated to a specific discipline", he said in a statement.


The Irish UFC star has enjoyed a rapid rise to the top of his game and now stepped up and across for an assault on boxing.

The fight did go on as scheduled and was not only successful in numbers but it was one of the best fights in UFC history. "How often he's worn the gloves or any of that doesn't really factor into - I didn't even know that, for instance".

Mayweather's willingness to fight in smaller gloves, to McGregor's advantage, likely comes as a surprise to many, considering something Mayweather told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith in a recent one-on-one interview. "It's going to help McGregor because he's not a boxer", Miller added when asked about who the beneficiary is of the rule change. It may be a complete mismatch, but there is money to be made with the right wagers.

"I'm feeling very confident I can walk through any shot and break him down", McGregor said.
