Found this clip interesting. Claiming it's not going to be a defensive fight and he (Floyd) will be the aggressor to make a point. I would expect this gives hope and favors Conor or at the very least the U 9.5 that has been mentioned seems like the best bet available. Wouldn't surprise many i don't think after all the talk, Floyd does what he does and fights his style (defensive) and it goes 12.
I find it highly unlikely that McGregor wouldn't bleed enough in 12 rounds for this to go the distance. I will be playing the KO in rounds 6-8 if I can get the right prices.

Re: Mayweather v. McGregor

For betting purposes is the only way this ends in a draw if 2/3 judges rule it a draw?

2/3 would be a majority draw, 3/3 would be unanimous draw, and I think 1/1/1 would be a split draw.

Yeah was gonna say - Conor is still on the UFC roster and is subject to USADA testing, regardless of the drug testing stipulations for this fight, so someone would have had to have screwed up royal for Floyd not to be tested to the same standard...

Anyone feels comfortable betting this fight? I'm talking by about the high suspicion on this being just a show and not an actual boxing event.

Indeed and Mayweather agreed to also be tested by USADA for this fight.

Might be part of the reason, but IMO the bigger reason is the other way around, you almost never be able to bet on a huge name (Mcgregor) while that guy is also a big underdog. So people love betting McGregor here since they like him AND he is the underdog, wich is rare. So it's like a win-win bet in their mind.

Re: Mayweather v. McGregor

the only thing I regret is seeing the prices move the other way because the hype behind this is making people falsely bet on Connor.

Was going to trade the profit off at 1.12-1.13 and stick it on Mayweather decision. Now I'm probably gonna let this ride.

Re: Mayweather v. McGregor

How exactly do Draws work in Boxing? is there any way they can make this a farce and have a draw to set up a rematch?

That is legit my only worry when betting this thing.

A draw is possible if that's the way the judges scorecards come in: all three can judge it a draw (unanimous), you can have a majority draw (two judges score a draw, one doesn't) or a split draw (one scores a draw, one for figher A, one for figher B).

Whether any of those scenarios is likely in this fight is another question though. Plus I dunno how likely a rematch would be in any event, but if they wanted one they probably wouldn't need a draw to sell it. Just like they don't need any legit reason for it to be happening to sell this first fight :P

Boxing lasts 36min. It isn't an anaerobic event.

Have you ever boxed? Or done anything like it? Sparring for 3 rounds is enough to make an average person throw up

Saying it isn't anaerobic implies it is aerobic, meaning it requires being in shape like you would need for distance running.

lvr, I add myself to the pile of posters who think you are completely wrong about boxing essentially being a hand-speed contest. There is way more to it than that. I would equate the technique:speed balance as something more akin to tennis than to a 100m sprint.
