NSAC Possibly Allowing Mayweather-McGregor Fight to Have 8-Ounce Gloves?

According to a report from ESPN, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is set to hear requests from both Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor to use 8-ounce gloves for their fight on August 26th. Under normal NSAC rules, any fight that's contested above 147 pounds is usually required to have 10-ounce gloves. The official weight for the Mayweather-McGregor fight is 154 pounds.

NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett gave the following statement to ESPN:

"Both camps have submitted a waiver by the date we requested, which was today," Bennett told ESPN. "The commission will hear both camps' reasoning as to why it should deviate from its regulations during a scheduled meeting on Aug. 16. Our chairman Anthony Marnell will then lead a conversation with the other commission members and they will vote on it that day."
