SK Exclusive: Bobby Lashley comments on the upcoming McGregor-Mayweather fight

Spokesman Rupert Adams said: "It is one way traffic for Conor McGregor, who is definitely winning the war of words as we get closer to the fight".

"You're going to bust his block is what's going to happen", commented Kimmel, with Mayweather responding "Yes".

Traditional MMA gloves worn by McGregor in his UFC fights are 4oz, while Mayweather's previous four bouts were contested at 147lbs so he was not obliged to wear the 10oz versions that are now stipulated.

Nevada State Athletic Commission regulations require contests over a weight limit of 147 pounds (Ibs) to use 10oz gloves, with McGregor and Mayweather slated to fight at 154Ibs.

Neither Mayweather nor McGregor have competed this year after Mayweather retired from pro boxing in 2015 after defeating Andre Berto and McGregor defeated Eddie Alvarez in November 2016.

Paulie Malignaggi may be landing his hardest punches on Conor McGregor through the media.

The Huffington Post notes that Straus, a pro-business Republican who sets the agenda, said that the issue was not a priority. Asked whether lawmakers should be called back to finish Abbott's to-do list, Patrick said "that's the governor's decision".

McCracken has a lot of respect for Mayweather and says he's a boxer all young athletes can look up to.

It now looks extremely unlikely that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will be wearing 8-ounce gloves in the T-Mobile Arena. He has come out of retirement in order to fight the Irishman -who has never entered a boxing ring in a professional capacity.

Not only has White publicly disputed Malignaggi's claim about the sparring sessions, saying McGregor dominated throughout, McGregor's training partner and UFC fighter Artem Lobov agreed.

"The only reason I maybe give him two rounds is because in this game, the referee stops me from pounding his head into the canvas, and he has 10 seconds to recover", McGregor said. "I think it'll be a good fight".

Kimmel said the short-odds being offered on Mayweather in Las Vegas were unlikely to stop him betting on the unbeaten pugilist.
