I'll make $300M in 36 minutes for McGregor fight

Boxing contest's which take place at a weight higher than 147lbs are subject to wearing gloves which weigh 10 ounces, however both fighters did ask for 8 ounce gloves to be used which the NSAC agreed to Mayweather's and McGregor's requests.

The Dream Midtown is an eclectic, upscale hotel in NYC's Midtown Manhattan neighborhood known for its luxury accommodations as well as its nightlife.

BetVictor Head of Sportsbook Product, Eoin Ryan, said, "Mayweather was for a long time pound-for-pound the best boxer in the world, but he is not the force of old". Watch it all go down this August 26 at the screening party at Dream Midtown.

Conor McGregor said in a new interview that he still considers himself both the UFC lightweight and featherweight champion. "I think it'll be a good fight".

Before the fight was even officially announced, Mayweather was a -2250 favorite while McGregor was at +950, CBS Sports noted.

Last week he told ESPN: "If we are in eight-ounce gloves, [Mayweather] will be floored multiple times in the first round".


It was estimated that in recent weeks McGregor, a two-division champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has garnered 85 percent of wagering volume with a line of +400.

"The move to allow lighter gloves came as a surprise as the 154lbs bout is considerably over the 147lbs limit at which eight-ounce gloves can be used".

Long-time MMA fan and Betsafe ambassador Bellew said: "Can Conor McGregor beat Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match?" McGregor has been pushing for a smaller glove size for the fight in the promotions between the two earlier in the summer.

Also this week, Davies talked about McGregor's now-infamous sparring session with Malignaggi, the combatants' use of 8-ounce gloves, and what the super-fight will mean for boxing and MMA.

"I'm ready to go to war for the full 12 rounds and I am ready to put him away in the first 10 seconds".

"The fight is going to end in a knockout, I'm very confident", Ellerbe said. "I look forward to coming back and continuing where I left off". And I've been off a couple of years.
