The only thing louder than last night’s Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor press conference was the Dubliner’s flashy suit with ‘F**k You’ written in the pin stripes.
Yes, that happened and yes, the most hyped fight of all time is actually happening in Las Vegas on August 26. So you may want to strap yourself in for more trash talking than an episode of WWE Monday Night Raw.

The UFC Lightweight champion has never been shy of a prediction in his career and to his credit, The Notorious one has been ‘money’ when it comes to getting them right. Just ask Jose Aldo…
So as fans and the world’s media waited with bated-breath last night the proclamation came from McGregor’s lips, “I’m going to knock him out inside four rounds, mark my words.”
Knowing how scarily accurate he’s been in the past, our traders got their crystal balls out and have made the former dual-weight champion 9/1 to leave Mayweather – arguably the greatest boxer of all time – knocked out on the canvas inside four rounds.
‘Money’ Mayweather remains the heavy favourite for the bout at 2/11, but a pile of cash from punters supporting the Irishman has brought him in to a 4/1 shot to cause one of the biggest upsets of all time.
