Conor McGregor says he has no interest what size gloves Floyd Mayweather Jr. wears when they fight in Las Vegas and warned the legendary boxer: "I am coming sprinting at you with bricks".
Mayweather revealed that he intends to use 8oz gloves rather than the standard 10oz for a super-welterweight bout when they step into the ring at the T-Mobile Arena on August 26.
UFC star McGregor offered a curt response as he continued his preparations for the mega-money contest with another sparring session.
The Irishman posted on Instagram: "Another handy 12 rounds today. We are prepared to destroy Floyd.
"Pick whatever size gloves you want as well little man. I fight with 4oz. I don't give a f*** about the size of the glove.
"I am coming sprinting at you with bricks. Know that. Brittle hands."
Mayweather had written on the same social media platform: "Don't believe what you hear in the media. Don't believe what you hear on blog sites.
"If it's not coming directly from me, then it's not true. I'm telling McGregor, 'Let's fight in 8oz gloves'. McGregor can fight in any brand he prefers or chooses.
"I'll be wearing 8 oz Grant gloves. Whatever advantage McGregor needs to feel more comfortable in the ring, I'm willing to accommodate. Let's give the boxing and MMA fans what they want to see."
