In an exclusive video interview with Betfair, David Haye discusses the announcement of 8oz gloves being worn for the McGregor v Mayweather fight, alongside former undefeated MMA star Michael ‘Venom’ Page.
Speaking to Betfair David Haye said:
“I heard Mayweather say in the press conference ‘wear whatever you want’ and I remember thinking that was a throwaway comment but, now if they are going to wear 8oz gloves, maybe Mayweather has zero fear that someone like McGregor can catch him clean.
“Mayweather has beaten over 20 current world champions and people who’ve been boxing since they were little kids, Canelo Alvarez was undefeated in his early 20s and could barely lay a glove on Mayweather.”
And Michael Page added: “You still have to hit the person and you’re talking about someone who rarely gets hit and has rarely been hit in his career and when it has it’s never been that clean.”
