The biggest fight of the year is on!
Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather V Conor ‘The Notorius’ McGregor
Event: Mayweather V McGregor
Our Tip: CONOR MCGREGOR
Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the middle of the ocean for the past 6 months, you won’t be surprised to find out that the 2 biggest names in combat sports will go head-to-head in Las Vegas this weekend in a fight which is destined to rewrite the history books.
It will certainly be unrivaled in terms of viewers tuning in to watch and total revenue streamed.
With the hype surrounding this match unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, it would be very surprising to hear of anyone alive that hasn’t heard the names Mayweather or McGregor being thrown around in recent weeks.
It really has been a credit to the promoters for the way they have been able to maximize the drama surrounding this fight.
There has already been a record number of sellout press conferences just to tease the appetites of fans across 4 different continents.
I’ve never been one for all this over-the-top boxing promotion stuff, but for whatever reason, just the hype around this fight is captivating me like a 12-round heavyweight title slugger. Take a look at some of the highlights from my favourite press conference.
This is the final leg of a grueling promotional tour that saw them back in London on McGregor’s home soil.
Whatever you think of these two as fighters, there is no arguing that this will go down as the biggest fight of this generation.
Nothing on this scale has been seen in either the boxing, or the MMA worlds before, and it’s proving difficult to see where another fight in the near future could come close to rivaling this bout in terms of hype and revenue.
Any doubts that Conor McGregor would not be able to apply his craft successfully in the boxing ring have been quashed with news that the bout will go ahead in 8-ounce gloves – for the first time in history.
History is already in the making 10 times over with this famous fight, and we feel that it will be the first time in history that a fight will end with Floyd Mayweather on the canvas, and the 8-ounce glove ruling is a huge boost to the McGregor corner.
Floyd Mayweather has quite literally made a $100 million dollar + career off of dodging, ducking, weaving, and squirming his opponents moves. He is one of the finest counter-defensive fighters to ever step foot in a boxing ring.
That being said, he has not faced an opponent as lethal with his fists and as ferocious with his movements as Conor McGregor is. He know’s the human anatomy and reads his opponents movements better than any other fighter alive today.
It’s his lethal punch that should put this fight beyond doubt though, and although like most we originally had reservations as to whether or not it would be possible inside the boxing ring, McGregors chances have been given the ultimate lift with the 8-ounce glove ruling, and it has cemented our thinking that McGregor will win by KO.

When it’s all said and done, we believe that Conor McGregor will go down as one of the greatest combat fighters of all time.
Either way, whatever happens, this man will fight for your money like no other fighter ever has before and he is way over the odds at $4.10.
Mayweather KO is the most popular prediction circling on the internet, but we just don’t see McGregor being knocked out and it could be a great lay bet.
