Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are set to face off in what has been coined the “Fight of the Century” on August 26, 2017. Both fighters are coming into this match with a backstory that has created more hype than any fight before it. Mayweather has come out of retirement after finishing his boxing career with a perfect 49-0 record (26 KOs); one more win would give him the most victories for an undefeated boxer in history.

Conor McGregor, a 29-year-old Mixed Martial Arts fighter, is the UFC Lightweight Title holder and arguably the most recognizable figure in the sport. He’ll be out of his element in the boxing ring. He last boxed competitively as a 16-year-old in Ireland. We’ll run through the various ways you can sink your teeth into this intriguing fight by wagering on a number of props and the fight outcome.


Fight Result

Currently, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is -500 to come away victorious in Las Vegas, while McGregor is +350. We’ve seen a narrowing of the odds in recent weeks, as bettors have shown interest in the underdog because of his unpredictability and ability to throw knockout blows. While Mayweather is still the heavy favourite, the betting public has shown McGregor some respect, putting their money behind the Irishman.


Method of Victory

Oddsmakers have a Mayweather victory by KO, TKO or DQ as the most likely method of victory, at -150, followed by a Mayweather victory by decision, at +230. Surprisingly, a McGregor victory by KO, TKO or DQ is a generous +375, while the prospect of McGregor winning by decision is the long shot at +1600.


Round Betting

If you want to try your luck on predicting what round the match will end, Mayweather on points is the favourite at +230, followed by a Mayweather victory in Rounds 5-8 at +275. The resounding favourite for a McGregor victory would come in Rounds 1-4, at +600. This prop coincides with Conor McGregor’s prediction that he’d knock out Mayweather within the first four rounds of the fight. Right now, that prop is set at +600 if McGregor’s prophesy comes to fruition, and -1200 for any other result.


What Minute Will the Fight End In?

Oddsmakers agree that the fight will most likely go the distance (+160). The next favourite is the fight ending in the First Minute of the match (+2000).


Will Conor McGregor Throw a Kick in the Match?

One of the more lighthearted props offered is that the MMA fighter will forget he’s in a boxing ring and throw a kick to Mayweather out of old habit (or desperation). Odds are on No (-2000), but a Yes has been given a “not out of the realm of possibility” +700 odds.
