Free tips Mayweather v McGregor Tip: Sport of Boxing needs a vintage Floyd Mayweather win over Conor McGregor in “Fight of the Century”

Top Mayweather v McGregor Tip:

Mayweather to win by Technical Knockout at 3/1 Paddy Power



Mayweather v McGregor Betting Preview

On Thursday 15th of June, Dana White of the UFC, representatives of TMT Promotions and Showtime TV, announced that after much speculation, Conor McGregor will indeed step inside the boxing ring for a 12 round match under boxing rules, against boxing’s number pay-per-view attraction Floyd Mayweather Jr.



Mayweather has been happily retired for over two years now since beating Andre Berto, completing his 49-0 record and indeed his contract with Showtime at the time.

The lure of a certain Irishman calling him out, backed up by the undeniable popularity of Conor McGregor, was too much to turn his back on considerable the earning potential and against all odds, the fight has been made.

Speaking of betting odds, Paddy Power are offering a top price of 1/6 on a Floyd Mayweather win, which while short enough could be seen as generous. McGregor is no bigger than 6/1 in the win market, which is absurd when you consider he has never even competed in a professional boxing bout.

When you consider it took the thick end of a decade to make the Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao fight, the smoothness of this deal has to be admired and UFC President Dana White was quick to acknowledge and respect the professionalism of The Money Team and Showtime in accommodating both the UFC and their contracted fighter Conor McGregor into the fold.

Both White and McGregor seem to have walked happily away from the deal, which is surprising, but TMT has insisted that the purse and percentages within said deal are kept under wraps.


Mayweather v McGregor Tip


To purely speculate given the magnitude of the event, you could imagine Showtime putting up $200m as the purse, you could also imagine TMT accepting half of that, with McGregor & UFC splitting the rest to suit; plus a cut of the PPV income which again of course will be cut in favour of Mayweather. Either way, it has been made clear that all parties are very happy with the money side of things and most importantly, that the fight is very much on.

Conor McGregor has taken MMA striking to another level in the past 4 years and is a legitimate two division world champion in the UFC, so is one of the best fighters in the world. But with the majority of his tool box out of the equation when confined to boxing rules, McGregor is going to be very vulnerable here.



Floyd Mayweather is unlikely to take the fight lightly and in terms of how the fight will play out, I think we can expect Mayweather to dance around and apply moderate pressure just to kept McGregor’s heart rate up while keeping himself comfortably out of harm’s way.

When McGregor is tired, it is very obvious. In the octagon he has the clinch, kicks and other weapons to keep himself in the fight, but when he gets tired in the latter rounds with a boxer of the calibre of Floyd Mayweather increasing the tempo and punching pressure, there is only going to be one outcome and that should, in respect of the sport of boxing, end in a TKO victory when it becomes clear that McGregor is unable to defend himself sufficiently.


SkyBet and Betfred are offering 1/1 about a Mayweather stoppage win, which looks outstanding betting value in its own right.

But if the above narrative reaches fruition, the 3/1 on offer from Paddy Power about a Technical Knockout win for Mayweather might be the shrewd Mayweather v McGregor bet.

Love it or loathe it, the big question about Boxing / MMA crossover – in boxing terms at least – is going to be answered. It’ll probably turn out as you’d expect, so long as Floyd stays well clear of that piston of a left hand on McGregor.
