Mayweather vs Pacquiao II Betting Odds

When Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao finally faced off in the ring after years of speculation, it was a dud. A pedestrian affair (at best) between two of the best boxers of this generation. Pac-Man had an injured shoulder and Mayweather did the bare minimum to win a decision.

That being said, it was easily the highest-grossing boxing match in history and there is no questioning the name value of Mayweather and Pacquiao. After Pacquiao’s unanimous decision victory over Jessie Vargas to claim the WBO welterweight title, the boxing world buzzed with the rematch that seems inevitable.

Promoter Bob Arum said that Mayweather vs Pacquiao II will “definitely” happen. Pacquiao himself said that “if the fans want the rematch, then why not?”

With the fight likely happening in the spring of 2017, per Arum, Mayweather has hit the board as a -350 favorite with Pacquiao coming back at +265.

A second bout between the two will undoubtedly make money hand over fist, but it’s hard to imagine the casual fans clamoring the way they were for the first clash. Boxing numbers have been steadily declining for years with the first Mayweather vs Pacquiao bout looking like a last gasp, as numbers have dropped drastically since then.

Though Mayweather is retired, nobody actually expects him to walk away at 49-0 and not come back to attempt to make it an even 50-0. And though Pacquiao has his political career to think about, that costs money that he desperately needs to generate.
