This will work in the favour of whichever fighter is faster, more accurate, and whose defense is less reliant on taking punches on the gloves. That fighter is Mayweather. I'd guess that McGregor is basically operating on the basis that he's going to get stopped anyway, but the smaller gloves increase his odds of a lucky punch doing the business.

The McGregor boxing strategy:

Get lucky.



I'm chuckling at dudes who think McGregor is going to bring a "new style" to boxing.

That sort of comment belies an ignorance of the sport. People keep saying boxing is dead and stilted, but they're totally to blind the quiet renaissance that is going in boxing at the lower weight classes.

If you really pay attention we have a lot of amazing fighters right now who don't get amazing press because they're not over 200 pounds and knock out artists.

GGG, Canelo, Lomanchenko and a few others are legitimately exciting and technical fighters. They're all insane and they're all very unique fighters who have styles we have not seen in a long time--but everyone thinks Mcgregor is going to be the one to bring a new style to boxing. Give me a break.

The real fight is going to be GGG vs Canelo.

I will be checking my PMs weekly, so you can catch me there. I will not be posting.
