Floyd Mayweather will face Conor McGregor in a £500million mega-fight in Las Vegas on August 26.
Mayweather retired in 2015, with an unbeaten record of 49-0, but now he’s back with a vengeance as he takes on the UFC lightweight champion in a 12-round clash that has been brewing for more than a year.
The former multi-division boxing world champion opens as the heavy favourite – understandable considering McGregor has never boxed professionally before.
Large sums of money have already been placed on both fighters – one bookie revealed that a single punter has placed £1,800 on a McGregor to win at 11/2, while Mayweather has the pressure of a £5,000 bet on his head.
But if you do fancy the Dubliner to prevail, new customers can get a staggering 49/1 price on him to win with BetSafe – who are officially sponsoring the Irishman.
Among Irish and British punters, McGregor has received heavy backing.
