Pretty sure you'll be able to get 50 K down if you want. Might be at more like -650. But they say money is still coming in on Conner.

I thought you believed Connor would make a decent showing.

I've stated every step of the way that people keep inaccurately saying "connor has never boxed..." when in reality he boxes for 2 hour a day EVERY DAY, the difference is Mayweather boxes for 8 hours a day every day. People were saying connor wouldn't even know how to box, which is just inaccurate. He's a good boxer, but the level of difference from him to Mayweather will be quite evident.

My handicapping lines on what I believe is fair (not that I'm willing to book action on these):

Mayweather -2500
Connor +900

Thus why if you can get good money with Mayweather at -500 (which is what Bovada opened its lines at for Mayweather) that's just free money (in my opinion).
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

That was my initial concern but then I heard there is a clause in his contract where he loses a lot of money if that happens.

I am not usually a conspiracy theorist, but I think there is a real chance that Mayweather values the money he would make from two rematches more than the undefeated record. It won't shock me at all if he throws it or he ends up getting disqualified for something.



Even if he loses 90% of his purse, it's still his biggest payday and sets him up for another one. Floyd is in hock to everyone, I doubt even this purse puts him in the black.
IRS will end up with most of it, from taxes owed on the fight and all the back taxes and penalties that have been compounding.
Connors not any better. Last fight in Vegas he was paying $25,000 a night for rooms for him and his forty closest friends.

The IRS is the only one that wins in this fight
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

How is this fight even sanctioned? In NY State, a boxer needs several three round fights before stepping up to six, then ten and finally 12 rounds.
Something shadey is going to occur, I truly believe it.

Maybe it's sanctioned by the WWE.

You could be proven right but I just see it as a money grab and Floyd walking away 50-0, something he has always wanted.

The fans will be feeling the same way they did after the Pacaquio fight, ripped off and saying they will never buy a fight again. And then they will line up like sheet for the next "big" fight.

Not me. I'm saving my money for Brock Lesner vs John Jones. That should be interesting.

John has to win tonight first. Certainly no lock.
