One of the most anticipated fighting slash boxing betting events of the year, dubbed “The Biggest Fight in Combat Sports History” is happening on Sunday the 27th of August (Australian time) in Las Vegas, USA.

This fight may even more anticipated than the Mayweather v Pacqiauo boxing match of 2015, initally dubbed as the “Boxing Fight of the Century”, it was later dubbed by some as a “Pay-Per-Snooze” due to what many considered to be a boring spectacle. This upcoming fight is happening between two unlikely contestants and if nothing else looks likely to at worst be interesting and at best highly entertaining.

One fighter is the undefeated pro boxer, Floyd “Money” Mayweather and the other isn’t a boxer at all, instead he’s the only person in the history of the UFC to concurrently hold a title in two different weight devisions, of course that being Conor “Notorious” McGregor.

They’ll be figthing Las Vegas, U.S.A. on Sunday the 27th of August (AEST).

Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather

Boxing Record: 49 Wins – 0 Losses – 0 Draws

Floyd Mayweather Jr. born in Michigan, U.S.A. is known as one of this generations most successful professional boxers after retiring in 2015 with a perfect record of 49 wins, 0 losses.

Mayweather’s style of boxing is not known for being brash, flashy, aggressive or put more bluntly, not highly entertaining to the casual fan of boxing. Instead, Mayweather has crafted a brilliant career by mastering of the art of boxing, continually scoring points while being one of the most successful defensive boxers and arguably the most evasive boxer in recent history.

The Notorious Conor McGregor

UFC Record: 21 Wins – 3 Losses – 0 Draws

Originally from Dublin, Ireland, McGregor stands in stark contrast to his opponent when comparing their fighting styles. McGregor is known for being flashy inside the octagon when fighting in the UFC, he’s very aggressive and is great on the counter-attack. Not only does he use his quick reflexes in his fights, McGregor usually ends his fights decisively by knocking out his opponent. He famously defeated Jose Aldo for the UFC Feathwerweight title in just 13 seconds.

Conor McGregor is also known for his quick wits at press conferences and media appearances and has an innate ability to taunt his opponents before, during and after his fights in order to gain an upper hand psychologically. Whether this tactic can work on Mayweather or not remains to be seen.

My opinion and free betting tips

Since Mayweather’s main strength is his ability to evade the fists of his opponent while landing scoring shots throughout the match and McGregor’s main strength is finding an opening on the counter-attack and exploiting it, the real question is can McGregor find that opening on such a defensive boxer, or will Floyd continue to prove to be one of the hardest to hit boxers in the world and make this another multi-million dollar Pay-Per-Snooze pay day?

It’s often cited that McGregor is one of the best punchers in the UFC, how this converts to the rules of boxing is yet to be seen. If this fight was in the octagon of the UFC, I would give McGregor the favouritism considering Mayweather’s lack of UFC training, but it isn’t, and I don’t. Training for a boxing match is not the same thing as being a professional boxer for your entire adult life.

There is a lot of talk, as there always is before a McGregor fight, about knockouts and who will knock out who in what round. I’ll be very surprised if either fighter can knock the other out in this one. I think this will be a points win to Mayweather, and my tip is to enjoy the fight but don’t take it too seriously. I think this fight is more of an exhibition match to be honest, I won’t be putting any major bets on this one.
