Floyd Mayweather has upped the ante ahead of his blockbuster bout against Conor McGregor by agreeing to wear smaller boxing gloves to improve the Irishman’s chances.
The problem is that it’s made no difference whatsoever to his chances according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au who have left McGregor unchanged at odds of $5.00 to win.
McGregor is by far the most popular with punters with Sportsbet already facing a large payout of over $5 million should he win.
Mayweather is $1.18 to be crowned the winner when they meet on August 26th.
“We’re finding it hard to find anyone who wants to back Mayweather and we’ll be licking our wounds for a long time should McGregor get up,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
