This Saturday, August 26, don't miss your chance to see the highly anticipated "Money Fight" between undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor with an exclusive viewing party at the stunning Dream Midtown Hotel.
And for Floyd, Floyd fought most of his career at 147lbs (welterweight) and used eight ounce gloves.
Skip Avansino, a member of the commission, said the rule for 10 ounce gloves went into effect in 2006 on a recommendation by an independent advisory committee not based on scientific evidence. "I do not see him absorbing the blows in the first few rounds, but we are ready for absolutely every scenario".
In addition to brick and mortar gyms, Mayweather Boxing & Fitness will launch a mobile app and in-home Virtual Reality experience - both featuring Mayweather himself - to maximize the number of people who can access a first-class training experience.
In an interview with Sky Sports (h/t Raimondi), White was critical of the former boxer's comments after footage showed McGregor getting the better of Malignaggi.

In any case, the NSAC on Wednesday voted unanimously in favor of the fight taking place in 8-ounce gloves - a one-time exception to its rules, ESPN said.
"I will say that I haven't really followed what Paulie has been doing afterwards". It's light-hearted. I don't take it personal.
"That's it in a nutshell, you've got pros and cons on both sides", he said. "I look forward to coming back and continuing where I left off".
A big change has been announced for the hyped Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor megafight.
McGregor is a heavy underdog for the Las Vegas showdown, given he has never before boxed professionally and Mayweather is unbeaten in 49 fights. And I've been off a couple of years. "Can McGregor win? You bet, and we are giving new customers the opportunity to put their pound on the younger two-weight UFC champion at 100/1".
