Just 10 days away from his epic showdown against Floyd Mayweather Jr., Conor McGregor spoke with reporters on a conference call about his professional boxing debut and to silence any of the doubters about his chances to pull off the major upset. 

One of the big questions leading up to the fight was answered Wednesday when ESPN’s Brett Okamoto passed along word the Nevada State Athletic Commission approved the request to let Mayweather and McGregor wear eight-ounce gloves. 

“I’m very happy with the way the NSAC handled it today,” McGregor said during the call, via MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani. “They were very fair throughout.”

McGregor also held firm in his belief that the fight won’t go past the second round now that he gets to use a lighter glove than the traditional 10-ounce ones used in a fight contested at 154 pounds.

“There is no way in hell that I’m not ready to fight in the deepest of trenches,” McGregor said, via Article source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2727889-conor-mcgregor-talks-8-ounce-gloves-challenges-floyd-mayweather-on-media-call
