My bet was in Euros... 800,000.... That is not an accurate conversion rate.

Mayweather is a sure thing....like no safety in the Super Bowl right?


Or Michael Moorer against George Foreman.
OOPS - that should be "George Foreman against Michael Moorer"

Or Buster Douglas against Mike Tyson.

Or Manny Pacquiao against Timothy Bradley (the first time). You never know what the judges are thinking.

Question: how far in advance do they announce who the judges will be? You would think this might affect the betting.

the difference between Michael Moorer, Buster Douglas, Timothy Bradley and Conor McGregor is that they were boxers and spent years training as boxers. McGregor is not even a boxer. there isn't all that much similarity between what he does and what boxers do. the match is a publicity stunt, not a real boxing match. it's basically a joke. kind of like a great home run hitter who challenges dustin johnson to a golf match because he thinks he has a great swing.

My mistake - that should be "George Foreman against Michael Moorer." And who realistically thought Foreman wasn't too old to beat Moorer?

True, McGregor is more likely to be like Michael Spinks than Buster Douglas, but that's the thing with an unknown quantity like McGregor's boxing skill; sometimes it takes just one lucky shot.

anybody who thinks mcgregor has some kind of halfway decent chance to win is basically disrespecting the sport of boxing

it is a sport that requires a tremendous amount of skill

you cannot jump into a ring with no experience and match up competitively with one of the greatest boxers of all time

a lucky shot is not impossible. but very, very, very unlikely. mayweather has competed in 49 fights. he has already probably had somewhat more than 10,000 shots taken at him. and not one has taken him down.

imho you would be better off blindly picking out a 30/1 shot at the track and betting on him.
