Mayweather said this as quoted by Ringtv: “Against De La Hoya, they gave me heavyweight gloves. They gave me 10-ounce gloves. We are requesting eight ounce gloves for this one. Hopefully, we can get them. We want blood, sweat and tears for this one.”
Is it not in the rules that 10oz gloves must be worn abover?
Also im pretty sure Pacquiao Vs Margarito was at 8oz too, maybe if they used 10oz gloves Margarito would have still had two good working eyes.
I feel that with 8oz gloves Cotto's face will be made a mess in not much time. If the commissions have these rules in place why do they ignore them? inst a boxers health more important than the requests of promoters and fighters?
What do you guys think?
