Mayweather Currently a -1000 Favorite To Win on May 3rd




As part of his monster deal with Showtime, Floyd "Money" Mayweather will fight Marcos Rene Maidana on May 3rd.

Many people were hoping that Mayweather would take on Amir Khan, but "Money" and his team decided on the Maidana fight instead. According to the sports books, Mayweather/Maidana will be a closer fight than Mayweather/Khan, as Mayweather was a -1250 favorite to win over Khan and is currently a -1000 favorite to win over Maidana.

"Money" and his team likely went with Maidana due to Maidana's power - the possibility (however slight) of a flash knockout by Maidana will make this fight easier to sell to the masses.

The main selling point of this fight - Mayweather's perfect 45-0-0 record against top competition. Mayweather has already said that he is retiring after his Showtime contract concludes - will anybody be able to beat him before he retires?

Let's take a look at the odds for the Maidana/Mayweather fight:

Mayweather, -1000
Maidana, +600

So, according to these odds, a successful $1,000 wager on Mayweather would yield a total return of $100, while a successful $100 wager on Maidana would return a total profit of $600.

--

Maidana is currently 35-3-0 over the course of his career, with 31 of his wins coming via knockout.

Maidana is in the midst of a three fight winning streak that includes wins over Adrien Broner, Angel Martinez and Josesito Lopez.

There is no doubt that Maidana is an impressive fighter, but does he have the tools to take out one of the greatest fighters ever?
