BetVictor offers 100/1 for McGregor to beat Mayweather

"I don't believe with the new gloves he makes it out of the second round", said UFC champion McGregor, 29. According to the NSAC, fights above 147 pounds require 10 ounce gloves.

"The move to allow lighter gloves came as a surprise as the 154lbs bout is considerably over the 147lbs limit at which eight-ounce gloves can be used.

But 8-ounce gloves, he will be done in two".

Both the Mayweather and McGregor camps have antagonized the NSAC on social media in an effort to sell tickets.

You have Conor who is used to four ounce gloves (in UFC) - now all of a sudden he has to go to ten (ounces). "It seemed nearly capricious to change from 10 ounces, which is the prescribed weight of gloves for that weight class". It's what he's used in nearly every one of his fights, with the one exception coming four years ago against Canelo Alvarez when he cruised to a victory at 152 pounds. Floyd Mayweather Jr., too, because it likely means more sales for what could be the richest fight ever.

"For me, it's athlete versus athlete", McGregor said. So that didn't factor into my thoughts at all.

3.3 magnitude natural disaster rattles residents in Oklahoma City metro
The quakes struck Tuesday night and Wednesday just east of Edmond, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City. The city of Edmond says power has been restored to two electric substations after a magnitude-4.2 quake rattled the area.

The McGregor vs. Mayweather fight is set for August 26. I was like "we would never get a deal done with these guys, it would be impossible to get this deal done". McGregor was a +500 underdog when the fight was announced on July 14. Malignaggi talked about his multiple sparring sessions with McGregor, the Irish star's power, and how he sees the fight playing out.

"The current featherweight champion is Max Holloway, a man I dismantled", added McGregor.

A matchup that will see Irishman McGregor attempt to cross over from the sport of mixed martial arts and make his pro boxing debut against Mayweather. "(But) I do not foresee him absorbing the blows in the first two rounds".

However, despite the expletive-laden tirades the two have exchanged, McGregor ruled out that there was any racial element involved in the fight, after Mayweather accused him of making racist comments during a press conference at Wembley Arena.

Mayweather hasn't knocked out a fighter since he defeated Victor Ortiz six years ago with a controversial knockout.
