In tweets: McGregor fans lose their s**t at Mayweather’s PP Pants

Is it something we did?


With the eyes of the world on Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor as they weighed in last night, little did they know Paddy Power’s Las Vegas punt was about to pay out big time.

After agreeing a back-office deal at Mayweather’s gentleman’s club Girl Collection, it was actually seeing Floyd in his underwear that we were interested in.

With betting being an intrinsic part of the fight, we simply had to be involved. The obvious route would have been to work with McGregor, but at Paddy Power we like to do the unexpected.

We have a proud heritage of ‘WTF?’ moments centred around mind-boggling collaborations and Floyd Mayweather Jr fits in perfectly with that. So we stayed true to form last night as Money took to the scales in his glorious custom pair of Paddy Power Lucky Pants.

Needless to say, Conor McGregor supporters were notoriously unhappy with us backing one of boxing’s biggest icons in – of all things – a boxing match.

Let’s give you a taster:

Some fans did see we had our Money in the right place though:

But, then came the snake emojis and they haven’t stop coming since:

Then there were those that slightly GOT ahead of themselves…

To be fair, even the odds suggest McGregor is a huge underdog tonight. However, if he shocks the world we’ll be see plenty more where these tweets came from.

We may just lock Paddy in the octagon with The Notorious One too, if he’ll still talk to us that is…

Leave yourself panting with these odds on May-Mac
