Cape Town - This weekend's mega fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor won't be as one-sided as many predict - if bookmakers are to be believed...
Mayweather, the finest boxer of modern times with an unblemished 49-0 record, is a "sure thing" according to those in the know for Saturday's Las Vegas clash against McGregor, the loudest and brashest MMA fighter perhaps of all time.
However, Mayweather has seen his odds shorten as money pours in for his opponent to do the unthinkable.
Mayweather opened as an overwhelming 1/8 favourite, but saw his odds cut to 1/5 and then to 2/9 at current pricing.
McGregor in turn now stands at 3/1 - and in with a genuine shot of the upset.
Mayweather is 3/4 to win via TKO, KO or DQ while McGregor is 100/30 to emerge the winner in the same fashion.
The fight will be broadcast live on SuperSport 2 from 05:30 (SA time) on Sunday, August 27.
