It's been hailed as the most controversial fight for years and has already broken boxing betting records on Betfair. Now, Floyd Mayweather Jr has said that his August 26 bout against Conor McGregor won't go the distance.
The American said: "He's looking forward to ending the fight early, I'm looking forward to ending the fight early - it won't go the distance."
Mayweather Jr has come out of retirement for his first fight since 2015, while UFC star McGregor is crossing codes for a mouthwatering contest in just over two weeks. Mayweather, at 1.22, is the firm favourite, although McGregor 5.70 has his backers.
For bettors, Mayweather Jr's latest comments blow open the method of victory market. The American is 1.78 to win by knock-out, technical knock-out or disqualification, while you can get 6.60 on McGregor winning by one of those methods.
But could Mayweather Jr be wrong? Could the fight go the distance after all? If you think so, you might want to back him at 3.90 to win by a decision.
It's no surprise that Mayweather Jr is expected to triumph when you consider that he's won all 49 of his professional fights. But if you fancy being more specific with your bets, you could get involved in the Exact Method of Victory market where Mayweather Jr by technical knockout is 3.20 favourite.
As mentioned, the fight, which takes place in Las Vegas on August 26, is already a huge betting event and Betfair has a wide range of markets on offer, as well as those discussed above, in which you can bet on everything from when the fight will end to the winner of each individual round.
