Boxing Odds: Floyd Mayweather favored vs. Conor McGregor 6/15/17

Floyd Mayweather's fight against Conor McGregor in August is set to break all of boxing's box-office records.

"I talked to him this morning, he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather on August 26, and he wants to defend his title this year too", White said on Wednesday.

There's not one place that I go to that, that Floyd goes to, or that anyone affiliated with Floyd that asked the question, 'Floyd, are you going to fight Conor McGregor?' This is a very, very, very hot fight, and it's a fight that the fans want.

Mayweather, 40, will come out of retirement and put his flawless 49-0 boxing record on the line against UFC champion McGregor in the ring.

Meanwhile, Conor McGregor is the best that MMA has to offer and the first fighter in the history of the UFC who won held two championship belts at the same time.

The fight will be broadcast on Showtime PPV and fought at 154 pounds.

According to the New York Times, Mayweather's 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao drew almost 4.5 million viewers through pay-per-view.

The Irishman became the first UFC fighter to hold two belts simultaneously when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez in NY last November for the lightweight championship.

Last November, Quigley said he'd be more than willing to lend his expertise to the McGregor camp if the fight was to happen, and now the US-based 26-year-old is predicting a stunning success for his compatriot. The current odds mean that you would have to bet $800 on Mayweather just to get $100 in profit if you win.

Mayweather will come off a two-year retirement in a bout that McGregor has been pushing for almost that long. However, after further consideration, White gave the fight chance and after successfully negotiating a deal with the Irishman, he closed the deal with Mayweather Promotions' Leonard Ellerbe last week to make the fight official.

Many fighters and fans have heaped criticism on the event, which is seen as a huge mismatch despite the fact it is expected to generate around £75m for each fighter. I've seen it happen.

It's being speculated that both men will be paid a staggering $100 million each for the fight to be aired on pay-per-view TV. Holm expects more cross-over challenges - between UFC fighters and professional boxers - in the future. But the reason Conor McGregor's as big as he is is he'll fight anybody, anywhere, anytime. Not saying Mayweather is going to win.
