The ‘super fight’ between Conor ‘The Notorious’ McGregor and Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Junior is perhaps the biggest crossover fight in professional history. The fight, which is expected to take place between 2pm-3pm (AEST) Sunday 27 August (find out which venues are showing the fight), has attracted a lot of different bet types for both Mayweather and McGregor.
While more money has been received for Floyd to outlast Conor, McGregor has received way more bets of smaller value; in fact the ratio is a staggering 15:1! There have been some big bets placed on the bout by UBET customers since the Mayweather v Mcgregor market opened a couple of months ago and you can be sure they will continue to roll in.
While neither party has confirmed what the fight is worth, experts have estimated it to exceed $600 million with both Mayweather and McGregor expected to pocket record pay days. It has even been touted as the richest boxing match of all time by some sources.
The confirmed glove weight for the highly anticipated bout in Las Vegas has been set at 8 ounces, which is a fair change for both fighters. McGregor would be used to wearing 4-6 oz. while boxing gloves can be anywhere between 8-20 oz. Obviously that change in weight will not greatly impact either fighter but it is one of a number of factors to consider before placing a boxing bet.
