Floyd Mayweather an Insane 1-25 Favorite to Beat Conor McGregor

Vegas oddsmakers have released odds on boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr to beat Conor McGregor as a 1-25 favorite.

Bettors would have to wager $250 on Mayweather to win $10. Those who like McGregor can bet him plus 1100, which means that a $10 bet would pay $110.

"We figure that in a boxing match Mayweather is an enormous favorite," said Jeff Sherman, an oddsmaker at the Westgate, in an interview with the Associated Press. "It would basically be flipped if it was an MMA match."

Both men would have to clear a number of hurdles in order for this fight to happen. 

While McGregor has expressed a willingness in fighting Mayweather and that the MMA fighter has secured a license to box in California, Mayweather continues to insist that he is happily retired and not interested in fighting McGregor.

McGregor has never fought a boxing match and is under contract to the UFC. UFC president Dana White earlier offered both fighters $25 million for a bout, which Mayweather described as laughable.
