Business News

Betway has hailed the Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor fight as one of the busiest and most profitable events in its history.

Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “The bet count throughout Saturday was similar to if a major football final was taking place that evening.

“Some of the early rounds for McGregor had liabilities that would have produced a record loss on any market we’ve ever offered. Thankfully, in the end, we couldn’t have picked a better outcome.

“It was one of the busiest and most profitable events in the history of the company.”

Following the fight, Betway are offering 7/2 that there is a rematch under boxing rules in 2018, while it’s 33/1 for a bout between the two under UFC rules in 2018.

In Betway’s ‘what will Mayweather do next?’ market, he is 4/6 to compete at WrestleMania, 9/2 to buy a Las Vegas casino and 10/1 to run for US Senate.

Tony Ferguson is 6/4 favourite to McGregor’s next fight, with Kevin Lee 7/4, Mayweather 4/1 and Nate Diaz 5/1.
