    8 oz gloves. Does that favour McGregor? Does it change anything really? I don't know how much different 10 oz to 8 oz gloves makes to fighters. Still more of an adjustment for the MMA fighter who apparently (according to a quick google search) is used to 4 oz gloves.

    Doesn't change anything. It changes punching speed because you're not moving as much weight, but it's probably more advantage to Mayweather honestly lol.

    I thought about punching speed as well and agree with you here. I hope it's entertaining at least.

    Advantage Mayweather for sure. He's much smaller.

    I think that this type of thing would matter, if there wasn't such a huge gap in the talent level between the 2 men. The experts who have seen McGregor train suggest that he is one of the worst boxers that they have ever seen, when comparing to the rest of the professional boxers they have scouted. Mayweather is the greatest defensive boxer of all time. This won't be close. I expect either a Mayweather TKO, or a decision where he gets every single round from all judges.

    I cannot believe how much the odds have somewhat turned in Mcgregor's favor.....meaning that it;s not like 8 to 1 odds for him. Last I saw it was like 4.5 to 1....

    It's funny, it's an interesting misconception of "odds" that the general public has. Only part of Vegas odds have anything to do with who bookmakers actually think will win. Their whole goal is to balance money, so no matter what, the casino wins. The odds have dropped so much not really because their opinion on the fight has changed, but because they're currently running a massive liability right now if McGregor was to win. They need more money bet on Floyd to balance their liability. Most of that stems from people betting with their heart instead of with their head, and also part of it stems from the opening odds being so heavily favored to Mayweather that there was really no point in betting Floyd, even if you were sure he was going to win.

    this is just an excuse to have a night out with the guys, have several beers and get drunk enough that we can forget how boring the fight actually ends up being.

    put me down for wanting mcgregor to win by knockout but obviously mayweather will win by decision.

    Mayweather will walk him down, and make McGregor box walking backwards, toe-to-toe. McGregor doesn't stand a chance.

    Boxing has recently started to do drug testing similar to the UFC, which is considered to be one of the best in professional sports. McGregor has never failed a drug test and has been tested 5 times in 2017 and was tested 11 times in 2016. He must file his whereabouts daily and is subject to no advance notice and out of competition testing at anyplace and anytime. Mayweather was drug tested 34 times in 2015. He has failed drug tests before, but nothing for absolutely banned substance. He was found to have abnormal levels before, but possible to occur naturally and once was found to be using an IV, although a paramedic testified that he provided the IV and a doctor confirmed the need for the IV.

    I am not concerned with the thought of either of them failing drug tests.

    You put way too much thought into your reply. Invest in a sarcasm detector.
