Conor McGregor Early Betting Favorite Over Oscar De La Hoya


Got this press release in my inbox today:


BetDSI.eu became the first sportsbook to post odds on the potential bout between Conor McGregor and Oscar De La Hoya.

De La Hoya made headlines Monday when he said he had been training for a return to the ring, and added that he would only come out of retirement for a chance to beat McGregor.

Opening odds at BetDSI.eu Monday morning essentially peg the fight as a tossup, but showed a bit of confidence on McGregor’s side.


Boxing match (must occur in 2018)

Conor McGregor -125

Oscar De La Hoya +105

“This isn’t a GOAT versus an untrained boxer scenario all over again. With proper time to train, we expect McGregor to be quite competitive in the ring, particularly against an aging De La Hoya that doesn’t possess the quickness or power he may need to win.”
