Dana White Makes A Rare Fight Prediction Ahead Of Mayweather/McGregor

Michael Bisping Britain's first UFC champion opened the door to boxing Tony Bellew

TONY BELLEW has gone toe-to-toe with UFC heavyweight Jimi Manuwa over the Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather fight.

Lighter gloves carry less padding over the knuckles, potentially making for a more explosive spectacle.

Boxer Bomber - who succeeded in setting up a fight with British MMA pioneer Michael Bisping on the back of the billion-dollar August 26 show - backs the Money Man. Floyd typically fights in 8oz gloves with three exceptions - "Canelo", Miguel Cotto and Oscar De La Hoya - because he usually fights at welterweight [147lbs].

A little more than a week before what some are calling "the biggest fight in history", Mayweather was just a -450 favorite while McGregor was a +325 underdog on Thursday, OddsShark.com said.

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. The fact I can't follow through in MMA and pound the head into the canvas and there's a 10-count in boxing, maybe I'll give him second round.

James Williams, CEO of Mayweather Boxing & Fitness, told FOX Business in addition to brick and mortar locations, the brand will also launch a mobile app and an in-home Virtual Reality experience featuring Mayweather himself.

"My whole life has been about boxing and about fitness, and now I'm taking everything I developed and bringing it into the fitness market", said Floyd Mayweather. "They took both fighters requests into consideration and I'm very happy with it. Look at what I fight with (normally)".

Both parties have been keen to express confidence in their ability to come out on top and Conor McGregor was once again full of bravado about his prospects on one of the biggest talk shows in the United States on Wednesday night. And I'm in my 40s. "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".
