RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
Here are some notes I took earlier while I was in Vegas

Southpoint

Round 3 = 10/1
Round 4 = 10/1
Round 5 = 8/1
Round 6 = 6/1
Round 7 = 8/1

Mayweather Win -490

Mayweather by KO -140
Mayweather by Decision -150

Wynn

Mayweather win ... -525

Mayweather by KO = 2/3

Westgate

Was shit

MGM

Mayweather win -550

Under 9 rounds -160

Mayweather KO -170

Round 4 = 10/1
Round 5 = 12/1
Round 6 = 12/1


For best round betting go to MGM or Stratosphere

For safest best of Mayweather win go to South Point -490

For Mayweather KO go to Southpoint-140


I put $1,200 on Mayweather KO at -140

& $100 on each round 4-6

Overall it was a good first time betting in Vegas, it's super easy to do so. Not as intimidating as I thought it'd be.

Took literally 30 seconds to place bet, didn't ask for ID or have to sign anything.

I didn't even bother to use any app, or online resource to find the best odds that day. Next time I'll try it out.

Plan on betting on every Crawford fight from here on out.

Good luck!

Whatever happens at the end of this fight the results will be entertaining as hell.

I predict lots of drunk and dead broke Irishmen.

If not then lots of Mayweather fanboys will be losing their shirts and the mainstream boxing meltdown will be glorious.

Either way all outcomes are amusing for casual viewers.

Poor Shane, man... It looks like that dementia pugilista is really setting in strong. He should've retired for good after that loss to Canelo. Still, he makes a cogent point - Maidana's unorthodox style might be the closest thing to Mcgregor that Floyd has faced in his career and still prevailed.

This deadspin article is hilarious and although I rewatched the first fight and think the author is overstating Maidana "almost beating Mayweather" it also probably details the only way that Mcgregor will have any shot at victory: http://deadspin.com/how-marcos-maidana-a...1571800209

I'm 50% in now. Strongly leaning towards holding the other 50% for live betting. Hopefully McGregor comes out bombing and drunk Irishmen think he's winning, making Mayweather the underdog.

Line is currently -400 on Mayweather. I'd say that's about as good as the line is going to get unless some whale bets huge on Conor to move the line.

I'm placing everything @1.30. Maybe it will get better, maybe it will get worse, I'm just locking in these ridiculous odds, I'm not a betting man, so I can't predict how odds will change up to the fight or during the fight.

Floyd won't be taking punches from McGregor, so I can't see odds improving during fight.

Damn Shane looks sick

Hate to speculate but if its dementia it's set in pretty fast

He was always one of my favorites and I've tracked his career rather closely. Always down to scrap too, never a boring fight. You can see where his articulation is not quite the same

I don't see McGregor's "style" having any real effect, Maidana's style is smothering and awkward. If anything I would compare his style to Pacman in it's jarring effectiveness. However, Mayweather figured him out by deterring him with the long jab and spinning him to force him to reset. Hatton's style was predicated on some of the same things. The way you cut off the ring is footwork. It allows small fighters like them to get to a spot and close space and utilize angles.

Part of what makes this an uphill climb for Connor is because of Floyd's speed he will be thinking before he throws his punches, a lot of what goes into being a great boxer is instinctual. Instinct comes from years upon years of repetition.

Mayweather has seen every combination McGregor will ever learn to throw and once he sees the opening he will be instinctively letting go of his hands.

Mayweather in 5 or 6. Should be entertaining

Good excuse to get together with family & friends for me

You make good points of comparison with Pacquiao and Hatton but the only thing we have to go off is Mcgregor's UFC fights, when striking on his feet. Clean, fast and sneaky counterpunches with tons of power: but that's his comfort zone where he's supremely confident with years of training, competing and all of his muscle memory aligned with how to succeed in the Octagon.

If he doesn't outright bumrush from the get-go, a round or two of dealing with Mayweather's transcendent footwork, speed, and boxing acumen is going to corral Connor's team into seeing a swarm attack as his only chance of victory. Cue the wild haymakers and overhand punches while Maidana is screaming at his TV, "Finally, we got ourselves a fight!"

Quote:Is McGregor Safe Fighting Mayweather? Ringside Physicians Say No

The highly anticipated showdown between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor may be a financial bonanza for its promoters, as well as for Nevada’s casinos and sports books, but there is an important constituency that does not believe Saturday’s bout should happen at all: the Association of Ringside Physicians.

The group of more than 100 ringside doctors, whose members have decades of experience and have worked hundreds of major bouts in New York, Nevada and other jurisdictions, is arguing that McGregor, the mixed martial arts champion who will be fighting in his first professional boxing bout, is overmatched by Mayweather, who is 49-0 and considered the best boxer of his generation.

“We were very surprised this bout was even sanctioned and was going to be permitted to carry on,” said Larry Lovelace, a doctor and the president of the organization, which is focused on preserving fighter safety. “The thing I really fear, truly fear, is that somebody’s going to get really hurt in this upcoming fight.”

Why would anyone get (seriously) hurt? The whole point of boxing gloves and boxing as a sport is that you can knock someone out without causing massive / permanent damage.

Tell that to all the families of the boxers who have died from injuries in the ring. Increase that by an order of magnitude for those whose lives have been severely compromised from injuries sustained in combat sports. I've been a boxing fan since I was a kid, but there's no point in sugarcoating the negative aspects of the sport.

This is not entirely correct. A significant part of the point of boxing gloves is to protect a fighter's hands, and to encourage fighters to throw more punches to make the sport more crowd pleasing.

I don't know how familiar you are with the sport, and I hope I'm not teaching you to such eggs here, but a brand new pair of 8oz gloves are pretty hard and unforgiving - they can confer tremendous concussive force to a man's head, whilst protecting a fighter's hands. Fighters sometimes take 50 scoring punches or more over the course of a single round. The damage this can do is significant, and boxing as a sport requires a great many things that are of limited value in MMA, such as head movement, shoulder rolls, close range defense against stinging combinations, etc etc.

McGregor is a tough guy, and I suspect he'll be fine, but the doctors make a perfectly legitimate point. With no head movement, or defense to speak of, the most likely outcome is that McGregor will take tremendous punishment for the short time the fight is allowed to continue. This really could be dangerous. Mayweather is not the pitty pat puncher many would make him out to be, he has been disrespected pretty seriously by McGregor, and he is a cold dude who will take pleasure in hurting McGregor.

Doing some cursory searching leads me to believe that boxing gloves protect the hands much more than they protect the heads. Anyone have a source study or anything that shows Handsome Creepy Eel is correct?

EDIT: Didn't see the post above mine, still my question remains as to studies/information on the topic. Genuinely interested.

RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
Thanks guys, I guess I was terribly wrong then:

Quote:Since gloves spread the impact of a blow, the recipient of a punch is less likely to be blinded, have their teeth knocked out or their jaw broken. However, gloves do not lessen the force applied to the brain as it rattles inside the skull from a heavy blow. In fact, they make matters worse by adding 10oz to the weight of the fist
...
As the bare-knuckle campaigner Dr Alan J Ryan pointed out: "In 100 years of bare-knuckle fighting in the United States, which terminated around 1897 with a John L Sullivan heavyweight championship fight, there wasn't a single ring fatality." Today, there are three or four every year in the US, and around 15 per cent of professional fighters suffer some form of permanent brain damage during their career. Worldwide, there have been over 400 boxing deaths in the last 50 years alone.
...
Boxing gloves are designed to protect your hands so you can punch the other guys head more. Head shots mean potential KOs and thats what promoters and the media like. Bare Knuckle fighters threw way more combos and shots to the body because they had to set up their head shots. One wrong head shot from a bare fist and your hand breaks. Hand breaks and you lose the fight most likely. Bare Knuckles do cause more blood from cuts and such so they are made out to not be as "safe" as gloves.
It comes down to the people behind the sport of boxing preferring cerebral trauma to blood.

Connor doesn't stand a chance, so that is why he will probably win or there will be a DQ.

It is a con show.
