Floyd Mayweather wears 'Bet on Black' Paddy Power pants ahead of Conor McGregor fight!

Bettingpro Staff 26 Aug 2017
  • McGregor vs Mayweather is TONIGHT!
  • Mayweather 1/4 at Paddy Power at time of writing, McGregor 7/2.
  • Paddy Power  have taken FOUR times as many bets on McGregor than Mayweather in the last 24 hours!

Floyd Mayweather showed off his "true colours" on Friday by sporting a pair of lucky pants provided by Paddy Power ahead of tonight's mega-fight with Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.

The custom-made pants, revealed as he weighed in for the money-spinning Vegas clash, cost almost £3,000, and were designed by Mayweather himself – including the line ‘always bet on black’ stitched on.

The Paddy Power lucky pants were first made famous when footballer Nicklas Bendtner revealed a pair after scoring at Euro 2012 for Denmark.

It was the American’s final pre-fight jab at Irish rival Conor McGregor, whose compatriots Paddy Power surprisingly teamed up with Mayweather to hijack the weigh-in ahead of a fight they say will attract more than £200million in bets.

The bookmaker have taken FOUR times as many bets on McGregor than Mayweather in the last 24 hours, and say that more than 80% of bets overall have been for the Irishman.

That includes one bettor who staked £650,000 on a McGregor victory at 10/3 – which would return winnings of more than £2.8million.

And that’s not the only reason Paddy Power fear their compatriot – a fourth round stoppage, as McGregor predicted, would cost them more than £10million.

Such is the interest in the bout, it is easily Paddy Power’s biggest boxing betting market of all time, and their biggest sporting event of the year.

But the bookie is confident – on Wednesday, they paid out early on a Floyd Mayweather victory, including one punter who received more than £50,000 in winnings.

Even Mayweather himself noted the pay-out, posting a celebratory video on his social channels – never one to miss a chance to goad his opponent.

Ken Robertson, Director of Advertising for Paddy Power, said: “Floyd showed his undies-card, and a certain Mr Power was on the bill. We’ve put the Money where our mouth is, and he’s put us where…well, you get the picture.
