The final details of the Aug. 26 bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor were ironed out at the Nevada State Athletic Commission meeting in Las Vegas on Wednesday.
As expected, both fighters were licensed for the matchup at T-Mobile Arena, and following a request from each camp, the bout will now be contested using eight-ounce gloves, not the 10-ounce gloves usually used in 154-pound boxing matches.
The referee will be Robert Byrd and the three judges chosen for the match are Guido Cavalleri, Burt Clements and Dave Moretti.
