Smaller gloves mean Mayweathers punches will be faster.
Just more indication of how much of a joke this is.
Can't imagine the Athletic Commission would waive its rules for another match.

I am going to be on a cruise that night what are the chances that they will be showing it in one of the bars on the boat?

Probably small? Depends on the cruise ship. If they buy it for the boat I'd imagine they'd have to spend crazy money because "potentially X number of people could be watching it." Perhaps if they only air it in ONE of their bars, then it would be like a normal bar... Not sure. I basically wouldn't bet on seeing it, but would be pleasantly surprised if you do. If they have decent WiFi you could always order it and stream it on a tablet or something.

Yeah this was my thoughts as well. Wifi on ships is so lame and $$$ so I may just miss this s**t show. Not a big loss but like you said I might get lucky and find a way to watch it.

It's been ten years since I have been on a cruise, but I've seen two PPVs on Carnival cruises. One was only shown in the sports bar, the other was shown in cabins.

Yes! This fight is just pure nonsense. It's a complete freak show.

huge amounts of money flowing in on mcgregor. mgm reports over 6,000 more tickets on him than on mayweather.

the odds are changing and mayweather is now at -475. here is betonline.ag right now:

Conor McGregor..... +375

Floyd Mayweather Jr -475


books are crying they'll lose a ton of money if mcgregor wins. BOOHOOHOO. let me dry my tears:

...and apparently Bovada has -400 for Mayweather.

Wizofnothing, are you willing to match, or beat, the -400 line currently available? My structure for a bet would need to be *something like*: I'll take Mayweather at -400 for $4k. Mayweather wins, I win $1k. Mayweather loses, I lose $4k. We'd have to settle in person, in Vegas, with cash, as both of us are members in good standing and I'm there quarterly I don't think it should be too big of an issue?

South Point just booked a $880,000.00 bet on Mayweather.



Word is that McGregor placed the bet
