Mayweather vs. McGregor Fight, A Huge Loss Of Sports Betting Opportunity

U.S is waiting for the biggest upcoming super-fight between boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC fighter Conor McGregor on August 26 in Las Vegas, which would invite a huge betting action.

This highlights the biggest issue of the current US sports betting prohibition because of which casinos, racetracks and gaming operators around the country would face yet another loss of an opportunity.

As it is a known fact, people would bet on the fight in Nevada and around.

In the history of combat sports, this fight would be the richest and the most watched fights.

This fight and all other similar big fights are conducted in Nevada, the only place where betting on fights is legal, all thanks to PASPA- which bans other states from legal sports betting.

One may bet anywhere in the country through a variety of illegal offshore online sportsbooks or US based bookmaking operation- who will readily take your wagers.

If the sports betting law is relaxed in the US, it would mean any state with casinos, or horseracing or both would be able to offer to wager.
