The cynic in me thinks this will be closer than it should be in order to justify another payday for the two contestants so had a quick look at the markets on offer:

- theres a lot!
- £19.6m matched already on outcome

Really tempted by a small lay on Mayweather on the grounds he may spin it out a bit.

Thoughts?

I don't think there's any value laying Mayweather at the current quote (curr. 1.29) as we all know he hates to get hit and the longer it goes on the less change McGregor has.

But I agree, it smells like they'll want a rematch but I can't imagine Mayweather giving up his unbeaten record he's worked so hard for just for a little bit more money.

I'll watch how the first round plays out and maybe place a few bets from there.

The fight will probably end in a double K.O like in some far fetched movie. Round 10, both go in for a punch and knock the other out. Pre rehersed obviously..

In my eyes I only see 2 outcomes, either Mayweather wins on points, or mcGregor finds his way through and lands his KO, specially since they switched the gloves...

Both outcomes pays well still

I will be amazed and quite a bit poorer if McGregor wins. My only worry is that there might be moves behind the scene into making this a two or three match series in which case such is life. Backing Mayweather looks very much like buying money to me, but I've been wrong before so we shall see.

save your money this wont happen. what people have to understand is that mgregor has been outboxing wrestlers who box, jujitsu guys who box so basically he hasnt had anyone like mayweather hitting him back or defending against him .floyd is a boxer through and through,no fighter has even come close to beating him, mosley hit him harder than anyone and floyd weathered it then dominated mosley..floyds defence is probably the best ever so is mgregor going to beat him in my opinion NO..the public are jumping on the back of mgregors confidence in his press conferences which i understand as he is great at MMA but floyd is as different animal . :D

I think if this was GGG or Canelo vs McGregor, then McGregor would be a lot longer than what he is now.

People maybe think Mayweather is too old, I don't think so, he could've gone on another 5 years imo. Maybe they think with all the hype and money surrounding the event that Mayweather will want to lose to get a huge payout for the rematch, again I think he respects his unbeaten record too much.

Not much value in the market but I'd definitely rather be on Mayweather at the prices.

I've been wrong many times mind you ;)
