How the odds have changed for the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight

Mayweather dominates Mc Gregor in late rounds to go 50-0

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor traded verbal jabs on Tuesday, August 22, as the circus-like countdown to their money-spinning superfight cranked into overdrive on the Las Vegas Strip.

In the other corner stands hard-hitting McGregor, a two-time world champion in the octagon making his professional boxing debut who will try to do what a long list of great fighters have been unable to do - stop Mayweather.

As the world gears up for one of the most hotly anticipated fights in history, Irish fans have been paying homage to their MMA-turned-boxing hero. But the Las Vegas smart money is all streaming towards Mayweather with reports of several $1 million bets being laid on the 'Money Man'.

Mayweather-McGregor is without a championship at stake, though.

Fight Time: Coverage begins at 6 p.m. ET on Showtime PPV, with Mayweather-McGregor scheduled to start at 11:55 p.m. ET. It was a clean fight for the most part, one that Guerrero wanted to make dirtier with inside boxing and some holding of his own, but Mayweather has always been adept at getting away from that kind of thing without referee interference.

"Their response nearly universally was 'We don't care if it's a mismatch. if there's a.01 chance that something incredible could happen, we need to watch it'".

McGregor, a 29-year-old former plumber who was living on unemployment benefits four years ago, is guaranteed $30 million, but could pocket as much as $100 million, ESPN said.

With waves of green-shirted fans in a crowd of around 6 000 roaring their support for the Irish superstar, McGregor tipped the scales at 153 pounds, well inside the 154-pound limit.

"That's the worst shape I've ever seen him", McGregor said of Mayweather. "So I like someone who's going to get in there and throw down".

The UFC star will have a significant weight advantage over Mayweather, but the odds remain stacked against him.

"This won't go the distance: mark my words". Everyone keeps saying McGregor's only chance to beat Mayweather is to knock him out early, but despite everyone's opinion as to what he should do, that not his style. "Mark my words - I'm not anxious about the scales".
