The super-fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is just a month away on August 26th. Here is everything you need to know about one of the most hyped fights in history.
Mayweather opened as a sizeable favorite (bet $2,000 to win $100) but the line has steadily dropped. The closer we get to the fight the more casual bettors, unwilling to bet large odds to win little money, are taking McGregor.
If you believe McGregor ‘is going to get killed boxing’ as Mike Tyson does, then the longer you wait the better odds you might get on Mayweather.
