Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather now odds-on to happen

The odds for the fight have been slashed after both fighters discussed it over the weekend


We have once again slashed the odds on Conor McGregor fighting Floyd Mayweather after both fighters claimed that the fight was going to happen over the weekend.

We originally offered 2/1 for the fight to happen before the end of next year, but now make it 1/3 for the two superstars to face off before the end of 2018 and 1/2 for it to kick off before the end of this year.

The traders make Mayweather 1/8 favourite to win the bout with the Dubliner available at 9/2 as the undefeated former Olympian in his first professional boxing match.

Féilim Mac An Iomaire, a spokesperson for Paddy Power, said “Both McGregor and Mayweather are adamant that the fight will happen and it now looks more likely than ever to become a reality. Given his experience Floyd would be the heavy favourite but the Dubliner has never been shy about upsetting the odds.”
