Star Sports has reported that Mayweather and McGregor's camps were in the process of submitting a formal request to use eight-ounce gloves for their bout on August 26.

Mick Konstantin from Celbridge wrote and recorded "There's Only One Conor McGregor", which has gone viral on social media, with over 2.7 million views on Facebook, and several hundred thousand more on other platforms, since it was posted last Wednesday.

"He was flattened against the ropes; multiple times the ropes kept him on his feet". We don't think he can go past four rounds. And then he just got out and went running. "The man was badly, badly concussed". Straight after it we were anxious. McGregor invited Malignaggi to camp to gain experience sparring a high-level boxer ahead of the showdown.

White, who was present at the sparring session, also posted another clip showing McGregor getting the better of the 36-year-old former two-weight world champion.

McGregor's awkward style may be his biggest advantage in the fight, as he enters the fight making his professional boxing debut and Mayweather is fighting for the fiftieth time.

McGregor worked out for about an hour and a half, hitting the bags and putting on a show for the media assembled.

"I know I'm going to see a fighter, a warrior", Mayweather said. But, it could also be the case that Mayweather and his camp are extremely confident he'll be able to easily outgun McGregor, even in the early exchanges.

"In my opinion, this was the best thing for him", McGregor said. "But I won't say that there's no negotiations".

"I'm preparing to win, and to win in devastating fashion".

Nicola Fitton, Managing Director at Betsafe, said: "We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Conor McGregor". Mayweather's gym was packed Thursday.

'This is a fight I have wanted ever since Badou Jack moved to light heavyweight and I'm delighted to fight in Vegas on an event like this, ' said Cleverly.

The WBA recently announced for negotiations to start between Cleverly and mandatory challenger Dmitry Bivol, however a deal has been agreed for Bivol to step-aside to let the bout with Jack take place.
