Mayweather-McGregor will use 8-oz gloves per Nevada Commission ruling. Was 10-oz. Both fighters lobbied for 8. Should help harder hitter.

Over the last few weeks, the odds have moved big in McGregor’s favor, down to +325 at Bovada and even +348 at Bookmaker. More than 80% of tickets have come in on McGregor at Bookmaker and 95% (!) at William Hill US.

This has been consistent from the start as over 90% of early tickets were also coming in on McGregor. This isn’t all that surprising considering the reluctance of recreational bettors to lay moneyline odds in such a high range, but bigger bets have come in on Mayweather.

Approximate average size of bet @CGTechnology_:
McGregor — $140
Mayweather — $6,000

Fun conversation on the @dpshow now with Gavin Maloof who bet $880,000 with his brother on Floyd Mayweather (-550) to beat Conor McGregor.
