Mayweather Marquez Betting – Can “Money” make it 40 in a row?
If you’re doing some Mayweather Marquez betting on Saturday, it’s no surprise to see Floyd “Money” Mayweather as a massive favorite against Juan Manuel Marquez. But after 16 months of retirement, does Mayweather still have the hunger to be the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world?
Mayweather Marquez Betting – Saturday, September 19, 9:00 PM ET
Mayweather (39-0, 25 KOs) retired after knocking out Ricky Hatton in a welterweight affair, defending his WBC title. Mayweather has now owned belts in five different weight classes, and he’ll go down as one of the greatest boxers of the modern era. He’s probably the best defensive fighter on the planet, but he has more than enough power to knock his opponent out. He also may be the best self-promoter since Muhammad Ali: his May 2007 fight against Oscar De La Hoya is the biggest-grossing fight of all time.
Marquez (50-4-1, 39 KOs) isn’t far behind Mayweather in the pound-for-pound rankings, as Mayweather is second while Marquez is fourth. Marquez is best known for his pair of battles with Manny Pacquaio, who is considered the top pound-for-pound boxer in the world, and he definitely held his own, which is why some are picking him despite his +325 odds in your offshore sportsbook. Marquez and Pacquaio fought to a draw in 2004, because Pacquaio took a highly controversial split decision in the 2007 rematch.
Your betting software should recommend Mayweather, who is favored at -450, and he may have his eyes on a larger prize: a superfight against Pacquaio, providing he gets past Marquez and Pacquaio defeats Miguel Cotto, and neither fight will be easy. Marquez has tons of experience and he was the one who called out Mayweather, so you can bet that he’ll be motivated for what is now the biggest fight of his career. Mayweather hasn’t fought in 16 months, outside of a stint in WWE, which can hardly be considered fighting.
Many wonder if Mayweather still has the motivation to be the best in the world, or if he’s just going for a payday.
He’ll be rusty at the beginning of the fight, and Marquez may push early, but Mayweather’s technique should buy him some time before he lets his hands go.
