“This could well be the biggest boxing event for bookmakers in history. Global turnover on this fight will be huge because this is the fight everyone has wanted for years,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
“As an undefeated champion, Mayweather has to be the betting favourite, but Pacquiao is the only man to win world titles in eight different divisions. The purse for the bout is massive, but around the world bookmakers are celebrating that the pair will finally meet in the ring.”
