An EPIC McGregor vs Mayweather mural just went up in Temple Bar

But how much they win or lose depends on the betting odds for the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, which have changed dramatically since they were first recorded. Mayweather earned a cool $220 million just from the PPV's for that.

Despite fears that the biggest fight in combat sports history may not even sell out, the fact that this PPV is expected to break all sorts of records means that those involved are not at all anxious. "Las Vegas is Ireland now".

The Nevada State Athletic Commission, however, doesn't have the same concerns, because it views McGregor's physical attributes as a means to balance out the wide gap in boxing experience.

But while McGregor, a long-odds underdog, has attracted most wagers, the majority of the money is on Mayweather.

"Their response nearly universally was 'We don't care if it's a mismatch. if there's a.01 chance that something incredible could happen, we need to watch it'".

But Trudeau doesn't think it's going to be a spectacular fight to watch.

McGregor, a 29-year-old former plumber who was living on unemployment benefits four years ago, is guaranteed $30 million, but could pocket as much as $100 million, ESPN said.

Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe was watching closely as McGregor weighed in and judging by his expression he was positive he was about to celebrate the Irishman missing weight.

Both Mayweather and McGregor have spent large parts of the build-up to the fight trash-talking, with an ill-tempered global promotional tour laced with expletives, repeated homophobic slurs and allegations of racist language.

What was most telling about McGregor's support then was the fact that 2015's UFC Fight Night Boston took place on the same night as the 2014 AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts - you know, the one that started Deflategate.

McGregor can be seen making a face of aggression, a now classic McGregor trait.

"This won't go the distance: mark my words".

"I feel Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez title bout in the middleweight category is a bigger event that Mayweather-McGregor", said Waseem. "I'm going to breeze through him, trust me on that". "Mark my words - I'm not anxious about the scales".
