Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor Betting Tips Explained


Despite the back-and-forth in the media, many felt Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor would never meet in the ring to settle their war of words. Those doubters were proved wrong on June 14 when the sensational announcement was made that unbeaten Mayweather would be exiting retirement to take on the biggest star in mixed martial arts in a boxing match.

“We've been in negotiations now for a while and to be honest, negotiations went smooth,” said UFC president Dana White during an appearance on ESPN SportsCenter. “Floyd is surrounded by some smart people and we got this thing done. The impossible deal is now done. Conor McGregor is a guy who's done a lot of good things over the years for this sport and for this company [UFC], and he wanted this. And obviously the fans wanted it too. At the end of the day, my job is to make fights that the fans want to see.”

“This has a different kind of feel,” said Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe. “With Conor McGregor not being a boxer, this is more of a mainstream global event. This is something that the fans want to see. He’s done a tremendous job with promoting himself. Dana has done a tremendous job with promoting him, and he’s the biggest star in their sport. So when you look on the other side, we all know what Floyd brings to the table. But it’s the fans that demanded this. So when the fans are demanding this fight, you gotta figure it out and get it done.”

Mayweather and McGregor will now collide in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 26 and between now and then the two men will trade plenty of verbal jabs while the pundits and fight fans debate how the bout will go down. Will Mayweather take his unbeaten professional record to 50-0 or will McGregor pull off one of the biggest upsets in not only boxing but the history of professional sport?

A bronze medal winner at the 1996 Olympic Games, Mayweather has enjoyed a flawless professional career that has seen him step in with a who’s who of boxing talent and beat them all, racking up world titles in five different divisions before retiring with a perfect 49-0 record after his win over Andre Berto in September 2015. The likes of Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya, Shane Mosley, Juan Manuel Marquez and Ricky Hatton have all stepped in the ring with Mayweather and not one of them has managed to beat ‘Money’.

So can McGregor – in his first ever professional boxing match – do what those men could not do and beat the former boxing world champion? The Irishman certainly has a knack for making history. Since arriving in the UFC he has drawn the biggest par-per-view numbers in company history and he ended Jose Aldo’s decade-long unbeaten streak in just 13 seconds to become the featherweight champion. He then topped that achievement by stopping Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight title and become the first man to ever hold UFC belts in two different weight classes at the same time.

Anything seems possible when McGregor steps into the Octagon, but the Irishman is not stepping into a cage on August 26 and he is heading into uncharted waters because the 28-year-old is stepping inside a boxing ring without ever having had a professional boxing match. And of course, he is also stepping into the ring with one of the greatest boxers of all time – a master of defence that has rarely been rocked in his entire career.

Mayweather has had his problems with southpaws, but they were left-handed fighters with professional boxing experience – McGregor has none. If the UFC star can land that lethal left-hand an upset could be on the cards, but he is going to have a hard time landing shots on Mayweather, let alone landing a blow that could knock out the American or at least scramble his senses. You have to expect win number 50 for ‘Money’ and it could come via stoppage.

The one thing we know about McGregor is he comes to fight. He will look to press Mayweather early on and go for a quick knockout – his best chance – but the boxing ace will play a cautious game for the first few rounds and use his movement to stay out of trouble while landing a few shots here and there. That approach could frustrate and tire McGregor, who is likely to load up on his shots the more desperate he gets, and of course the Irishman will be almost certainly be fighting natural instincts to throw kicks and elbows - that too can wear on a man and lead to mistakes. As the fight wears on and Mayweather starts enjoying more success, he will step up through the gears and start landing more and more clean shots.

This fight will go into the deep rounds and while much has been about Mayweather's inability to finish any of his opponents since 2011, ESPN's Fight Science recently revealed his punching power is comparable to that of Nate Diaz, who rocked McGregor badly in their first fight, forcing the Irishman to make an ill-advised takedown attempt that resulted in him tapping out to a choke. A stoppage victory for 'Money' is not out of the question here and the bookmakers seemingly know that with the odds on offer. The price is backable though.
