ESPN's Brett Okamoto reported Thursday that the Nevada State Athletic Commission would hold a vote after Mayweather and McGregor submitted a request to wear eight-ounce gloves for their showdown on Aug. 26.
Former boxer Paulie Malignaggi was working as McGregor's sparring partner before quitting on Aug. 3 after disagreeing with what he felt was UFC doctoring their work to make McGregor appear better at boxing than he actually is.
Here's what Malignaggi told ESPN's Brett Okamoto about his decision to walk away from being McGregor's sparring partner:
"And I do want that sparring video released.
McGregor addressed Malignaggi's comments during the press conference after his workout, telling reporters Malignaggi took "head trauma" in sparring and "the soars were not good for him."
