FLOYD MAYWEATHER VS CONOR MCGREGOR: AMERICAN FORMALLY REQUESTS TO USE 8OZ GLOVES

The former five-weight world champion submitted a necessary waiver to the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) on Wednesday, hours before the deadline.

The NAC, which sanctioned the bout, told BBC Sport it expected to receive a request from McGregor on Wednesday.

NAC rules state fights at 154 lbs require 10oz gloves and the matter will now be debated on 16 August.
Last week Mayweather posted an Instagram message stating: "I'll be wearing 8oz Grant gloves."
During his UFC career, McGregor has used 4oz gloves and he welcomed Mayweather's Instagram post last week, stating: "I am coming sprinting at you with bricks. Know that. Brittle hands."

The NAC will debate the matter publicly before announcing its decision.
