Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has opened the floor to its customers with #BYOMayMac, who can request any bet they want in the Mayweather v McGregor fight and no suggestion is considered too random or outrageous.

  • Punters allowed to BYO bets on fight by making requests
  • $7,000 bet on McGregor to throw first punch within 10 seconds and win by KO in opening 4 rounds could return $105,000

One punter has asked for $7,000 on McGregor to throw the first punch of the fight within 10 seconds, plus Conor to win by KO in Rounds 1-4 for a potential return of $105,000.

867 people have taken the $101 on offer for Mayweather to be knocked out in both Round 1 and Round 2 and McGregor to win by KO in Round 3!

Sportsbet punters can also get $251 for Mayweather to bite McGregor’s ear, or $101 for both fighters to be knocked out simultaneously.

“We couldn’t be bothered thinking of novelty bets for the fight so we’ve asked our punters to do the hard work for us and to be honest, they’ve done a much better job than we could have. We’ll know who to ring next time we’re hiring!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
