BOXING: MAYWEATHER v PACQUAIO BETTING PREVIEW

boxing (1)

IT’S been billed the Fight of the Century and certainly there’s been the hype of the century.

Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquaio has grabbed the attention of fights more than any other contest in recent memory.

Both boxers are already legends of the ring and one reason for them finally meeting in Las Vegas is the crazy amount of money on offer to both.

I’m no boxing expert but most tipsters are siding with Mayweather, probably on points, but some reckon the younger Pac Man has a chance.

Hopefully we’ll see some good comments on the fight but for me best bet looks to be boylesports’ 1-1 for Mayweather to win by decision or technical decision. The action is expected to start at around 5am Sunday.

Coral predict £10 million will be wagered on the bout – loose change to the flashy Floyd – with the weight of money in favour of Mayweather.

He is 8-15 favourite to keep his unbeaten record intact while Paquiao is 7-4 to cause an upset. A stoppage for the American is 11-2 and it’s 13-8 the pair take part in a lucrative rematch in 2015.

The fight should be close and a draw or technical draw pays 16-1 while it’s 3-10 it goes the distance and 12-5 that it doesn’t.

    Mayweather to win it round 7-12 @ a juicy 10/1.
    Can’t stand the guy but he’s the best in the business and Pacquiao too far gone.
    This fight Shudy happened 5 years ago.

    Posted this last night on the sports thread, no expert but just my thoughts on the big fight.

    Mayweather v Pacquiao

    If this was 4yrs ago I would be really getting the buzz of a big fight, however despite paying for the fight and looking forward to it, I can only see one winner.

    I suspect the experts and the ex pro’s in the papers this morning will be tipping a Floyd win on points and a few romantics going for a Pac man victory. I can see a Floyd points win by 4-7 rounds on the judges cards. I do think Floyd could win this fight by stopping Manny, and at 13/2 sporting bet it is worth a small flutter whilst enjoying what hopefully is a great fight.

    Manny as been waiting for this fight for years, he was knocked out clean by Marquez in what was their fourth fight and I wonder is that a sign his defences are not as good as they once were. If Manny takes the fight to Floyd I think he could get caught, and while Floyd is not a renowned KO specialist he is getting older and maybe cant just rely on his movement and reflexes not to get hit. It may force Floyd to throw more punches and that could lead to a really good scrap. I cant see a Manny win, so it is Mayweather for me likely by decision or TD at 10/11 William Hill, but I am having a few quid on Floyd causing a bit of a surprise by stopping Manny at 13/2 Sportingbet.

    MAYWEATHER TO WIN BY DECISION/TD 10/11
    MAYWEATHER BY KO/TKO/DQ 13/2

    Good luck if your having a bet

    Live from Vegas good word on Pacquaio

  6. Alex 2 years ago

    Alan M-enjoy mate. I have invested in Mayweather myself which was tagged on to a few footy bets that have already come so I have covered the Manny win at 2-1 just in case. A lot of people are talking up the points win etc and usually when that happens we all get caught with our pants down. I’m with the chief and will have some money on KO/TKO just in case for some extra spoils. Good luck.

    thanks

  8. craigyboy 2 years ago

    Im on Pacman to win by ko or tko at 11/2. For me Pacman has got to win it inside rounds and I reckon he can hurt Mayweather with power and pace.

  9. mambaj 2 years ago

    What is “rjjallca” thoughts on fight. He knows his boxing.

  10. StuBlue 2 years ago

    Pacquaio is the most succesfull boxer, hes been world champ at 8 weight divisions compared to Mayweathers 5, hes had 38 KO’s compares to Mayweathers 27, yeah hes been beaten but hes fought nearly 20 more fights than Mayweather. Any sportsman or football team etc is judged on how much theyv won at the end of the day, not how many theyv lost, and pacquaio is by far on top.

    You can judge them on the fighters theyv both fought.

    Cotto – Pacman put him down twice and the fight was stopped, mayweather won on points.

    Hatton – Pacman KO’d him in the 2nd round, mayweather took 10 rounds.

    De la Hoya – Pacman beat him up badly and the fight was stopped, mayweather won on split decision.

    In my opinion Pacquiao is the better boxer, but he can be reckless and thats why hes been beaten, but i feel with his speed and talent itl be too much for mayweather and the pressure is all on mayweather.

    Pacquiao to win.

    i hate mayweather -but honestly guys hes beating pacman, 1/2 is great to win the fight

  17. Jordan 2 years ago

    Seen a few polls for the fight, and the majority of answers say Pacquiao by stoppage? Is that because they hate Mayweather? I know that’s my reason.

  18. paul 2 years ago

    Think mayweather in round 6

  19. thechief 2 years ago

    Jordan, Everyone I seen backing Manny always include the fact they hate Floyd. I just think he too good, people hate him because he is arrogant but end of the day he sells tickets. I would say Manny wont get the nod on points in Vegas and if he KO Floyd it would rank as one of the biggest shocks in Boxing.

    It is the fight of the year everyone has different opinions, but for me Floyd wins on points by 4 or 5 on the judges cards, but have a feeling he may KO Manny.

  20. Jordan 2 years ago

    Yeah that’s it chief. I think the majority probably do hate Mayweather. Manny certainly has nothing to be hated on. It’s not a fight I can put money on myself, the event is big enough. Wouldn’t mind who wins, I just hope it’s fair and that Manny actually makes him think twice (like Mosley did early in their fight). Would be good to sit him at least hit the mat.

  21. Jordan 2 years ago

    See him hit the mat*

  23. Pete Brown 2 years ago

    Southpaw and fast….all wrong for mayweather

    Manny to win

  24. PaulG 2 years ago

    I don’t think the fight will last the distance……

    Seems Money has been quieter in the build up to this fight and maybe there is something to that, and still can’t get the image of PacMan knocked clean out so believe something has to give.

  25. Jordan 2 years ago

    Chief I just seen the Jets have drafted Bryce Petty. I said they’d draft him or Hundley. But Hundley has gone to the Packers!Might not be any ‘oh no Geno’s’ this season haha

  26. Paddy 2 years ago

    I reckon Stublue is the only person in the world that thinks Manny is a better boxer than Mayweather. Ha

  27. StuBlue 2 years ago

    Paddy, facts dont lie, 8-weight world champ compared to a 5-weight world champ, not hard is it ?

    Pacquiao win wouldnae be one of the biggest shocks in boxing chief :)

  33. ingrm 2 years ago

    Can someone tell me if Mayweather winning on “points or decision” at evens includes all types of decisions? Or does it just include majority, not technical etc?

  34. Alves 2 years ago

    I’ve taken couple poond bets on Pacquiao in the 6th and Mayweather 8th both 40/1, always too much hype in box office fights but there’s been no haye chisora talk or that in weigh ins/press conference because both respect each other, chances are mayweather on points but hopefully pacquiao wins. If it does go full 12 rounds pac mans nae chance, the judges will see to that even if he is winning. A draw wouldnae surprise me either just for the ££ being made here

  35. StuBlue 2 years ago

    True Alves, 2 of the best boxers on the planet, anything could happen.

  36. jockster 2 years ago

    Looking forward to the main event.
    My heart says pacman but my head
    says moneyweather.betting
    wise i’ll av a punt on both boxers.
    something similar to alves.
    just hope its a cracker after all the
    hype.good luck everyone.enjoy

  39. Alves 2 years ago

    Odds suggest thisbcould be over inside 6 rounds, Ukraine guy 1/50 to win. I’m hoping in the 1st few rounds as starting tae get tired haha. Might have tae sack the beers and get a coffee down me :(

  40. PA 2 years ago

    Although a draw could be on the cards so much money on this fight… Fixed draw then rematch and they can both grab another £180 mil each for that…

  46. Alex 2 years ago

    Pizza at the ready check, drink at the ready check! Going to be the type of fight that everyone will be asked where they were at home time.

  47. Felix 2 years ago

    Mayweather made pac look pedestrian. Manny has his moments but that really was relatively simple.

    Not sure how Manny thought he won. Strange

  48. dave 2 years ago

    would have thought a lot more of pacman if he hadn’t blamed injury for defeat

    mayweather beat him without breaking sweat

    he won that easily that a rematch wouldn’t even be viable

  49. Mr Samsung 2 years ago

    It was always going to be Floyd on points, Pacquiao is half the boxer he was 6 year ago, and Floyd new it this is why he eventually made the happen. Had he not of ran away from it back then, it would of been a different outcome.

      Mr Fixit 2 years ago

      Mr Samsung, I’m no boxing expert but my Mayweather tip was based on what I read so pleased it came in. Doesn’t look like I missed much of a fight though.

  50. Felix 2 years ago

    I bottled out putting money on strycova after the first set was 6-0 to Bouchard, but true to form, Bouchard had a mental breakdown. She’s really crumbling as of late.

  51. Felix 2 years ago

    Opps, posted in the wrong thread!

  52. Mr Samsung 2 years ago

    That wasn’t a dig at you or anything Mr Fixit , just a general reply after reading some of the comments.
