Mayweather vs Mcgregor is going to be one of the largest boxing spectacles in the history of the sport. The event pits Conor Mcgregor, a Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion versus Floyd Mayweather, the undefeated five-division world champion who has won fifteen world titles championships in four different weight classes. This is Conor Mcgregor’s first time entering a boxing ring, but he has a great standup fight game in the UFC and is known for his powerful left hand.
The odds are with Floyd Mayweather in this boxing competition and, in fact, Conor Mcgregor is a +500 underdog while Mayweather is favored at -700. The difference comes from the fact that they are fighting in a boxing ring with 10 ounce gloves and not in the UFC, which is a mixed martial arts promotion and also from the fact that Conor Mcgregor is entering the boxing ring for the first time and fighting one of the greatest boxers of all time. While the UFC allows punching, kicking, wrestling, ground submissions; such as, chokes and arm bars, boxing is boxing and allows for punching only.
Some people believe that Mcgregor’s history of overcoming enormous odds and coming out on top give him an edge. They also believe that if Mcgregor can catch Mayweather with the right punch that he will be able to knock Mayweather out. Besides the fact that Mcgregor does have a solid left, Mayweather is also over 40 years old while Mcgregor is only 28, and this fact has given fans of Mcgregor even more hope.
While the odds are highly stacked in Floyd Mayweather’s favor, many experts believe that Conor Mcgregor still has a puncher’s chance to win. If he can pull it off, it will be one of the greatest boxing upsets in the history of the sport. Learn more about mayweather mcgregor odds come visit us at our site.
