Mayweather vs. McGregor Simmers in Eclipse Shadow

The Irishman is just nine days away from facing the undefeated world champion in Las Vegas

Conor McGregor does not need any help with his confidence, but the approval to use eight-ounce gloves in his matchup with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26 just made him even more optimistic.

Some local bars and restaurants in San Angelo will undoubtedly show the fight and there's a question as to whether the move to eight ounce gloves will draw a bigger crowd or not.

"I believe now that the gloves are eight ounces I don't believe he makes it out of the second round", McGregor said on a conference call on Wednesday. "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".

You have Conor who is used to four ounce gloves (in UFC) - now all of a sudden he has to go to ten (ounces).

According to White, the estimate for total pay-per-view buys is around 4.9 million, which is 300,000 more buys than for the record-setting fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in 2015. "I use it as motivation and I look forward to going in and educating the world on what martial arts is". McGregor ended up winning the fight via a decision, five months after their first fight in which he was submitted.

U.S. slaps more sanctions on Venezuela politicians including former President Chavez's brother
Venezuela's new constitutional assembly has passed a decree declaring itself superior to all other branches of government. Venezuela has been beset by a wave of anti-government protests since April 1 that have left at least 121 people dead.

We want to take him seriously but when someone is dressed like a dodgy uncle in the '80s selling used vehicle parts on the side for an extra pit of cash, it's hard to hear anything they say.

"I think, if McGregor stops him early, he'll win in the first three rounds".

"He's possibly the biggest, the fastest growing sportsman in the world, that I have seen in my lifetime, I have never seen a rapid rise like it in my life".

"As Simba in The Lion King says: 'I laugh in the face of danger.' Throughout my career, the more unsafe opponent, I step up".

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. Mayweather closed as a minus-200 favorite in that one.
