Who the hell is Floyd Mayweather? (-;

Perhaps there are people who don't get that joke. I couldn't find the WOV link.

Does it involve kilo juliet? If so, I got the joke as soon as I read it.

Or are you talking about someone whom's name rhymes with hairy? S. Or whoever that guy was that said he was a big sports bettor but didn't know who Floyd was?

I almost spelled "rhymes" as "rimes".....the AxelWolf effect.

Based on current Las Vegas odds of -1300:

(1/13)(0.98) - (0.02) / (1/13) = 0.72

You really think risking 72% of your bankroll on this one fight would be the correct bet? That would be $40,000 for Zen King. Quite a bit more for many others.



In theory, yes. In practice the emotional cost of a blown knee might be to high.

Look at boxing lines. The guy named after my screen name is -900 against a legit opponent on the Ward undercard.

Mikey Garcia is -750 against Adrien Broner, who is a big name in boxing who would effortlessly school conner.

Kos aside, there are no 3 run hrs in boxing. It's a best of 12 contest. Very hard for an inferior boxer to win.

Floyd is 49-0 against boxers, mostly world class boxers who would beat conner in their sleep. Hard to say he's been terribly lucky in that run either.

Rhymes with fairy and hairy, hairy as in, hairy ball washing.

Two boards, actually; only two: not 3,628,953,747.

I thought gamblers needed to know how to count accurately?

True, under the rules here one can insult those who have been banned, but the same rules do not preclude a member of this forum from making fair comment about it.

Connor's sparring partner for the Diaz rematch weighed in today and said he thought Mayweather would outclass and outbox him to the point of Connors corner stopping the fight. He said he was unimpressed with McG's power and his footwork was terrible.
something tells me he is now officially Connors ex-sparring partner.
