McGregor v Mayweather Betting Tip:

Floyd Mayweather to win by KO/TKO at 8/11 at Betfair Sportsbook

Some will turn their noses up at it and others will embrace it, either way the Floyd Mayweather v McGregor betting will be huge for their fight in Las Vegas on the 26th of August in being dubbed “The Biggest Combat Sports Event in History”, as the former pound for pound five division boxing world champion takes on the biggest star in the UFC.



Mayweather v McGregor Betting Odds

Understably, Mayweather is the bookies favourite at around 1/5, with McGregor the 4/1 underdog.

The fight card is said to be a one-off event, which just two boxing fights on the undercard. Whispers of various possible Boxing Vs MMA cross-overs were rife, but Conor McGregor has the golden ticket and is set to make over $100,000,000 from the bout. Mayweather is of course the “A-Side” and this is a Showtime event, a company for which Mayweather has out-earned every boxer in history over the last decade, not least in his 2015 Superfight against Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao, widely regarded as one of the greatest boxers of the modern era, was a 7/2 underdog to defeat Mayweather when they met, so it is somewhat extraordinary that this crazy Irishman from Dublin – with no previous professional bouts – is trading at just half a point bigger to gun down arguably the best defensive boxing technician of all time.

Floyd Mayweather is pretty much the essence of boxing in human form: “Hit and Don’t get hit”. But through a 3 year long rampage through the UFC ranks, backed up by some outstanding trash talk and a unique personality, Conor McGregor has quickly rose to global stardom and there is no getting away from the fact that he is a very special fighter.

Mayweather v McGregor Betting Predictions

Jose Aldo was undefeated in the UFC for 10 years and was top of the UFC pound for pound list when Conor McGregor challenged him for the 145lb featherweight title at UFC 194 in December of 2015. It took Conor McGregor 13 seconds to knock Aldo out. He shook the world.

After a famous duo of fights with Nate Diaz, McGregor was the main event at the first ever New York City UFC event last November, where he took on another MMA future hall of famer in Eddie Alvarez for the 155lb in a bid to become the first ever two-weight UFC champion to hold two belts simultaneously. Many expected Alvarez to prove a step too far, but Conor McGregor put on a pure masterpiece in striking, picking Alvarez apart with a sniper-like left hand which ultimately proved his downfall in the second round.

It was a win that would immortalise McGregor within the UFC and one which took his popularity to a whole new level. It was then that the Mayweather fight started to be whispered about and as soon as there was smoke, flames quickly caught on, particularly on social media among sport fans but also by way of several back and forths between the retired champion boxer and McGregor.

Ultimately and against all odds, they got this fight done and it will take place in just over 3 weeks at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

But it is a huge ask for McGregor to beat Mayweather. He is sure to have a gameplan to upset Mayweather and he certainly won’t approach this bout like other boxers who’ve tried and failed to beat Mayweather.

But the aces must be with the boxer in a boxing match and across the 12 round fight in prospect, but for our Mayweather v McGregor betting tip, we think that Floyd Mayweather can be expected to find the right timing and shots to wear McGregor down and likely get the fight stopped inside the distance.
