FLOYD MAYWEATHER has seemingly changed the agreed glove size for his August 26 clash with UFC star Conor McGregor.

The pair, who will meet at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, are boxing over 12 rounds at 154lbs. They were originally set to use the standard 10oz boxing gloves, but it appears Floyd wants to change that.

In a post on social media, he has claimed he will instead wear 8oz gloves and encourages the Irishman – who is used to the UFC’s 4oz gloves – to do the same.
