Boxing Odds: Is Mayweather-McGregor the Super Bowl of Boxing?

On August 26, the biggest boxing match of all time will take place between a formerly retired 40-year-old and a man who’s never stepped foot inside the squared circle. Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0 lifetime, 26 KOs) will face UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. At press time, Mayweather is the –600 favourite, while McGregor is available at +400.

They’re calling it The Money Fight, and for good reason: The over/under for PPV buys is 4.99 million, with the over pegged at –260 on the boxing props market. Mayweather’s 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao, The Fight of the Century, drew a reported 4.6 million buys. So many people want to see Mayweather vs. McGregor – and bet on it – that it could rival the Super Bowl in terms of popularity.

There are currently 49 different ways you can bet on Mayweather-McGregor, including the “Inside 4 Rounds” special, based on McGregor’s prediction that he’ll knock Mayweather out before the start of the fifth round. The odds on McGregor winning by any means inside four rounds are +600, while any other result is the prohibitive favourite at –1200. McGregor is also +600 to KO Mayweather at any point.
