Anyone who forks out the $60 to watch the Mayweather-Pacquiao super-bout won’t want it to end pretty much before it’s begun, but online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is running a market on the contest finishing within a minute.
$61 is the price for either fighter to take under 60 seconds to get the job done, while Mayweather is a $101 chance to be the one to do it in that time period. Pacquiao is less likely to ruin the spectacle at $126.
“Anyone who’s shelled out for the fight on pay-per-view might like to take a bit of insurance by backing the fight to end within 60 seconds. At least they’ll get something out of the day,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
One Sportsbet customer is here for a good time rather than a long time, placing a $1,000 bet on Mayweather to win in under 60 seconds at $176 for a collect of $176,000.
Floyd would find it hard to disagree with that punter, but will he put his money where his mouth is? Famous for flaunting his massive bets, Mayweather is priced at $7.50 to have a bet on himself with a stake of greater than $1 million.
