At 40 Floyd Mayweather says training is tougher than ever... but his mental game remains strong

According to the NSAC, fights above 147 pounds require 10 ounce gloves.

The Irish UFC star and the unbeaten boxer will collide in a money-spinning showdown in Las Vegas on August 26.

Vue Cinema in Liffey Valley has announced that they're gonna be hosting the ULTIMATE movie night on the 26th August, showing the Mcgregor Vs. Mayweather fight on two of their big screens.

"I don't believe with the new gloves he makes it out of the second round", the UFC champion told reporters on a conference call.

"We've seen a shift in the fitness industry in that the average consumer is seeking access to the same training that elite athletes have available", James Williams, CEO of Mayweather Boxing & Fitness, said in the release.

The Nevada Athletic Commission ruled earlier in the day the fight would use eight-ounce gloves rather than the traditional 10-ouncers mandated for any match above 147 pounds.

Indian, Chinese troops exchange candies at Nathu La pass
China wants the Indian Army to withdraw from Doklam , and India asked China to stop building the road. But on both the occasions their attempts were thwarted by alert Indian troops, they said.

McGregor's future beyond his boxing debut has been queried by MMA fans who fear he may not be motivated to return to UFC after earning a reported $100m in facing Mayweather. "Yes, Floyd will be faster with eight-ounce gloves but he's more defensive". "They took both fighters requests into consideration and I'm very happy with it".

Longtime employee Tom Miller thinks the rule change will help draw more of a crowd for local businesses.

"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", Mayweather said in a media release provided to Club Industry.

The fight did go on as scheduled and was not only successful in numbers but it was one of the best fights in UFC history. I know there's talk of an interim belt.

Paulie Malignaggi - who quit as McGregor's sparring partner after reacting angrily to images appearing to show him knocked down in a session - has also raised the prospect of coming out of retirement to box the Irishman. Not only has Mayweather never been beaten in 49 career fights, but he's only suffered one official knockdown in his entire career.
