But the Las Vegas smart money is all streaming towards Mayweather with reports of several $1 million bets being laid on the "Money Man".
"I feel Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez title bout in the middleweight category is a bigger event that Mayweather-McGregor", said Waseem.
He also walked down Shane Mosley.
Mayweather, though, has seemed anything but fearful in the lead-up to this mega-fight.
"He is the Ibrahimovic of martial arts and I'm McGregor of the football world".
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. One aspect of the fight that shouldn't be poorly-received anywhere is the inclusion of Robert Byrd as the referee. As much as McGregor's advantages in size, reach, youth (29 vs. the 40-year-old Floyd) and recency of his last fight of any kind (November 2016 vs. Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205), his sheer lack of experience in a boxing ring leaves him playing catch-up. Otherwise, he'll have a tough time hanging with an elusive defensive maestro like Mayweather, who should win handily.
