Paddy Power have once again slashed the odds on Conor McGregor stepping into the ring with Floyd Mayweather following reports that the megastars have reached a deal.
The bookie now makes it 1/5 for McGregor to step into the ring with the undefeated boxer before the end of 2018 having offered 1/2 less than 24 hours ago.
Elsewhere, we can also report that 88% of all bets placed on the bout to date have been backing the UFC lightweight champion to become the first man ever to defeat the former Olympian.
Asked about a potential mega-bout between the pair spokesperson Paddy Power, said “What started as a crazy idea now looks very much a reality.
“As an experienced boxer it’s hardly surprising that Mayweather is the favourite, but current betting trends would suggest that our punters believe that McGregor is in with a great chance of causing an upset.”
