Paddy Power have paid out on Floyd Mayweather defeating Conor McGregor on Saturday night before the fight has even happened.
The Irish bookmaker is so confident that Mayweather will extend his pristine record to 50-0 against the MMA superstar crossing over to make his professional boxing debut, that they have forked out winnings for those who were willing to take a gamble on ‘Money May’ at such short odds.
The odds currently stand any 1/4 for a Mayweather win, while a McGregor win which would truly shock the entire world is available at 7/2 with Paddy.

“Paddy Power believes in me. The Irish fans believe in me.”
Mayweather is keen to get under the skin of McGregor before the bout this Saturday and he is sure to have released this tweet with that in mind. As difficult as it is to irk the incredibly mentally tough Conor, knowing that one of his own is going against him this weekend may just get to him.
