What are your general thoughts on the fight between Mayweather and McGregor?
I’m excited to watch this fight. Some people think it’s a joke, some people say it’s the greatest thing they’ve ever wanted to watch. I know there’s two fighters and neither of them are taking each other lightly and training really hard. I can guarantee you Mayweather is not overlooking McGregor and McGregor knows Mayweather is undefeated for a reason. Most believe McGregor can’t win by outboxing Mayweather of the course of 12 rounds and instead needs to turn it into a “fight.” Do you agree with that assessment?

McGregor’s going to make a fight out of it, absolutely, but Mayweather’s a technician. He’s very good. McGregor needs to pace himself a little bit, too. 12, three-minute rounds is a lot different from five, five-minute rounds like he deals with in the UFC. In MMA, there’s kicking and punching and grappling. It’s a different type of pace, a different type of fight, which I’m sure he’s prepared for. But there’s something to be said for ring experience. Mayweather has done this time and time again. He’s very good at taking it to the later rounds. McGregor has to make it a fight, but he has to keep fighting and not only have six rounds in him.
Just over a week out from the fight the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) approved a change in glove size from 10-ounce gloves to 8-ounce gloves. McGregor believes this gives him a huge advantage and will allow him to knock Mayweather out quickly. Can it really have that big an impact on the fight?
Honestly, 8-ounce gloves are pretty small. They really are. They feel different on your hands. They’re tighter, they’re smaller, they find openings a little bit better. I’ve fought in both. The thing about boxing gloves compared to MMA gloves is 8-ounce on a boxing gloves – that’s everything. That includes the padding over the thumb all the way down the finger and down to your wrist. There’s not really a ton of padding over the knuckles in an 8-ounce glove. It’s not a crazy amount of difference, but there is a difference and that will give Conor a greater chance.
