that statement is hilarious, I've been boxing for 8 years, if we use bigger gloves for sparring (16 oz) the damage are clearly less then if we use pro(8oz) gloves, and after that u have those MMA type of glove who gives u A LOT more opportunity to knock someone out easily.

PLZ when you don't know something dont make stupid statements like that.

Gloves were primarily a solution the the problem of hand injuries although it was found that there were also a reduction in tearing facial skin. The presense of the glove spreads the load across a broader area. As for reducing knockouts, gloves are not the solution. Your boxing coach probably tells you to punch through the target. Putting a glove on your opponent's fist will not stop it from snapping your head back and giving you a concussion, in other words knock you out. The solution for that problem is better defense and moving your head.

Comparing the gloves from boxing to ufc/mma is a waste of time. Street fighters in the cage haven't had any serious training on how to punch, consequently they don't need as much protection for the hands. If a boxer wearing a ufc/mma glove struck a man in the forehead he would most likely break his hand. The street fighters in the cage don't break their hands because they never learned how to punch.

Then you're clearly not a boxing fan. I would cheer for any boxer in the world no matter who they are to beat a MMA fighter everytime.

And you're a fanboy
I like watching boxers box and MMA fighters fight. I love both sports equally.
That doesn't mean I'm delusional enough to think a completley 1 dimensional fighter like Mayweather (or any boxer) could beat an MMA fighter.

Then why did Dana White nor share your same confidence when Cintron took him up on his offer?

Cintron is not just any boxer, he had extensive amateur wrestling experience. He would be one of the very few who would achieve success in MMA.

As for the deal, I don't know anything about it.

Huge risk, no reward. Almost everybody believes that Mayweather is the best boxing has to offer. Nobody believes that of Cintron, and nobody would buy tickets. Dana White is also clever enough to know that Cintron is a puncher and would most likely finsh off Shrek the first minute of the first round.

if Mayweather goes through with this, it will be an absolute disgrace to boxing, on a par with Ali fighting that wrestler Inoki in the 1970s. Why in the world would Mayweather feel like he needs to slum it in the MMA world? Even associating himself with a rumour about it just cheapens his appeal as a champion.

He's a shot fighter and has to do something to pay the mortgage and child support.
