2 Aug, 2017

ESPN reports that, according to Nevada State Athletic Commission rules, Mayweather and McGregor, who are contracted to fight at the junior middleweight division limit of 154 pounds, must fight with 10-oz gloves even if they¬†agree they’d prefer 8-ounce gloves. NSAC rules:

Athletes (boxers/kick boxers) weighing-in up to and including 135 pounds must wear 8-oz gloves in competition, while athletes weighing-in over 135 pounds (junior welterweight class and above) must wear 10-oz gloves in competition. However, athletes weighing-in over 135 but (no) more than 147 may wear 8-oz gloves in competition if both athletes agree to do so in writing on their bout agreement (contract).
