The big fight is now official and Paddy Power are first out of the blocks with a huge range of novelty bets for McGregor v Mayweather.

Long before the fight was made official last night there had been odds on who would win the boxing match and they have remained largely the same after the announcement of the August 26 bout.

Unbeaten boxer Mayweather is a skimpy 1/8 with the Irish bookie to win the fight, while UFC champ McGregor is 5/1. The draw is 33/1.

However, the range of markets published today shows that it is expected to generate huge interest with punters, with every potential eventuality covered.

If you think Conor McGregor will throw a kick during the fight, that is 12/1.

If you think the Dubliner will be disqualified, that's 10/1.

The odds for the referee to be knocked down by a punch is 100/1 while the odds on a rematch are already at 6/1.

The bookies also reckon that is 6/5 that someone will pay more than $100,000 for a ticket to the event in Las Vegas.

While everyone is sure that both men will make a sackload of cash for this event it is less clear what will happen to their respective careers afterwards..

A win for Mayweather would see him reach a 50-0 record, and surely stay retired once and for all.

For the much younger McGregor, his next move is far from certain but if you think you know who he will fight next, Paddy Power have priced up everyone from Hulk Hogan, to a bear to Khabib Nurmagomedov.
