Although it is not the Pac-Man vs. Mayweather fight the world has been awaiting for the past few years, this bout is by far the biggest on this year’s boxing schedule. The bookmakers have Mayweather, since he is undefeated marked as the favorite to win the fight outright at (-600) with Cotto to win standing at (+500). A draw is projected at (+3500) and with these odds Sportsbook will give away up to $500 to any player who bets and loses if any fighter knocks out the other within the first 3 rounds.
Mayweather has moved up in weight to face an opponent in Cotto who is known for his power punching ability and ferocity in the ring. Cotto will be in his comfort zone weight division and he has been at the top of it for years, so that is where he has an advantage in this bout.
Mayweather is of course undefeated in all of his 42 professional fights and has set yet another obstacle for himself to conquer another division. He is also known for his unmatched speed and exceptional defensive techniques. The fight will most likely sell over 1.5 million pay-per views and earn tons of money for both fighters but if Floyd loses then it might be the end of his career. A fight with Pac-Man will not be as desired anymore if Mayweather is not coming into it with an undefeated record.
With so much at stake Sportsbook as mentioned before is giving away $500 to anyone who placed a bet on the fight and if either fighter knocks the other one out within the first 3 rounds. Don’t miss it, fight night is Saturday, May 5th and the bout will take place at the MGM in Las Vegas.
