However, with the super-fight now less than a week away, the odds on a shock McGregor victory have shortened. Representatives of both fighters appeared before the Nevada State Athletic Commission to request the waiver. That led Mayweather's promoter, Leonard Ellerbe, to scold writers at his media day for hurting boxing by being too negative about the fight.
The pair meet in Las Vegas on Saturday for a fight eagerly anticipated by some, while others are sceptical of the merits of the cross-over bout.
Meanwhile, Mayweather has largely remained secluded in his own boxing facility across town with little information leaking out regarding his preparation for McGregor. I don't expect either one of them to get into any physical altercation. I think Conor has to learn to turn punches over but more than that he needs to learn how to keep it clean. Whether you are for or against this spectacle, one thing is nearly certain; Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will have near record breaking numbers of eyes on them.
Nothing serious ensued, but afterwards UFC President Dana White told reporters that things were very close to going South. At just twenty-eight, the Irishman is set to make history, as well as a lot of money and wouldn't have to step into the cage again. "I've got the boxing skills that would tear him apart". "I tell you what, he said he's going to come at me?"
"But when it comes to pure aggression and fighting rules, I can definitely fight, so I don't mind that. I think it'll be a good fight".
If you plan to bet on this match, you'd have to put up $400 to win $100 on Mayweather, whereas a $100 bet on McGregor would net you $300 if the UFC star were to win.
And significant amounts of money continue to be placed on McGregor to stun Mayweather, even though the American has never before been defeated in the ring. "Then, when we got over there, he asked my PR guy, 'When do we start rehearsals?' and some moron from the Japanese side who hadn't been clued in started shouting, 'What rehearsal?' That spooked Ali, and he wouldn't hear about rehearsals after that". "Two men at the pinnacle of the game in both sports".
