The Nevada State Athletic Commission approved the use of eight-ounce gloves for the highly-anticipated fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather in late August. The lighter gloves will help McGregor out, lessening the six-ounce adjustment from UFC gloves down to four. This may allow him to keep the hand speed that has won him so much success in MMA. But the lighter gloves also give Mayweather, who has some of the fastest hands in boxing, even more speed. Who does it help more? 🥊
