Conor McGregor is betting a huge amount on himself in the Mayweather fight. Even for a man who has never struggled with confidence, this is still a big statement.
According to the Sun, he has wagered an absolute gigantic bunch of cash on himself to win the August 26th fight. McGregor is a 4.00 outsider for the bout against Mayweather, but that hasn’t stopped the confident Irishman to throw a bunch of cash on himself.
BACK MAC – McGregor Loads Up On Himself
The Sun Newspaper wrote, “The message to his friends and family has been simple from Conor, he’s telling them to get rich off his back.
“He has told a lot of people to back him if they want to earn some easy money.
“They will have been reassured by the fact that he says he’s putting one million euros ($1.4 million AUD) on himself to win, that’s how confident he is.
“We know how accurate Conor’s predictions have been in the past and that’s why people close to him will find his tip hard to ignore.”
As they say, they call him Mystic Mac because he predicts these things. The Notorious is famous for predicting which round he will knock his opponents out in during his UFC career.
However, this is the first time he has done it in his boxing career. That’s not that much of a surprise because this is actually his first boxing bout! What a man?! Throwing over a million dollars on himself in his first ever boxing bout.
Not only that – he is facing off against the best ever defensive boxer, Floyd Mayweather. He is the 49-0 and if you don’t want to go with McGregor for the big fight, you can load up on Mayweather at a price of 1.20. Compare the best, and latest, Mayweather vs McGregor Odds Online.
His favouritism is totally understandable though – he has defeated everyone who has been put in front of him at every stage of his career. However, he is 40-years-old and Conor McGregor is in his prime as a 29-year-old dual UFC Champion.
It’s going to be a fight for the ages and we cannot wait – we can see both sides plus and negative points and as it gets closer, it gets even more intriguing.
