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.



Coner has his license. Never read about the stepping up in rounds. Whatever that issue really is, it has been resolved. I'm not sure any titles are on the line.

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.



Your information is alarming, if true....that's the big "if" for me.....Normally these folks don't pay for their rooms, the promoter does. If Floyd is indeed broke and in hock, well it's certainly big news. Any resources for that statement? Thanks.

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).



If it's free money, the odds should not matter to you. However, I think the windows are open at -500 up to -650 as we read....and, well, it's not free until after the fight but free is free so step up. Cheers mate.

Any thoughts on the O/U of 20 punches landed by CM? Is there value if you think it is going to be a short fight?

Berto landed 83 vs Floyd and Pac landed 81 in his last 2 fights that went the distance.

UFC doesn't pay for a fighters entourage, and Mayweathers tax trouble is public knowledge. His lawyers recently asked the IRS to hold off putting a tax lien for 2015 until he collects his money for this fight. Google it.

No such thing as a sure thing in gambling but you will miss a lot of opportunities with that attitude.

I'm risking $450 to win $100. I think the phraseology for you (WON) would be you have $100 in action. I think the "in action" refers to the money you are risking.
