With the bout between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and “The Notorious” Conor McGregor inching closer, one has to wonder: How will Mayweather win?
I mean sure, McGregor could pull out the victory, but “Money” is 49-0 against actual boxers, so even if this wasn’t Conor’s first fight the odds are against him. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t interesting props to this fight. Namely has been Mayweather’s inability to finish an opponent.
Exact Method of Victory
Mayweather By Knockout – (+300)
Mayweather By TKO – (+300)
Mayweather By Decision – (+230)
McGregor to be Knocked Down or Out
Yes – (-300)
No – (+200)
Fight Goes The Distance – (+200)
Coming into this fight, Floyd rides the wave of 7 straight unanimous or majority decision victories. However, he hasn’t managed to Knockout another fighter in 6 years dating back to September 2011.
Of his 49 wins, Floyd has tallied 26 Knockouts, but 20 of those came in his first 24 fights (77%). Only 6 have coming in his last 25 bouts (24%) dating back to January 2001. Coming into this fight at 40 years old, the chances of throwing a knockout punch seems even lower.
On the flip side, McGregor has lost 3 UFC fights in 24 bouts, all three has come to submission. He may not win, but at the very least you can assume he won’t be getting punched into the ground.
So as a bettor, are you taking Floyd? Then your best bet is the fight going the distance, and him winning by decision. If you do think his experience will be overwhelming for McGregor, taking the +300 on the TKO is the safer bet, as 5 of his last 6 early finishes (18/26 KO’s total) were technicals.Bet Now!
