The so-called “fight of the century” between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is also going to be one of the most bet on sporting events of the year.

The fight, which takes place on Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, is captivating for gamblers given the odd nature of the set-up. Mayweather is 49-0 as a boxer, while McGregor is making his professional boxing debut — yet because of his dominance in the UFC bettors are jumping on him as an +400 underdog.

Disrespectful to guys like canelo.....

Mcgregor is great at selling himself but this is kinda crazy especially when this was just released.

The circus is in town...don't be self righteous and act like your not going to watch man. I don't find it disrespectful because all boxing enthusiasts know it's a gimmick fight and that there will simply be another asterisk on Mayweather's career....50-0 should have gone to a better person but there is nothing to do about it. I just watched the Ward-Kovalev fight and they were talking about it as soon as the fight was over, the damn fight is going to sell and we are going to watch it too. I will have the faintest hope that McGregor lands the perfect shot but I know already that the fight is going to be primarily one sided. Fuck it man...it's the way of sports fighting under the Conor Effect.

Oh I'm watching lol

Just saying he should be a much bigger underdog considering actual credentialed boxers were bigger underdogs........I'm very well aware its to help sell the fight.

If he lands the perfect shot, then you can really kiss his ass goodbye. The best shot at getting him back in an Octagon is to have him suffer such a devastating defeat that he feels obligated to come back in and give people a different final memory of him fighting. He won't be able to plead his way into a rematch like he did with Nate Diaz
