While few were given McGregor much a chance, viewing this spectacle as little more than a money-making fight, a four city world tour promoting the fight seems to have swayed oddsmakers to closing the gap between the two fights drastically.
He brushed off the tax debt in comments to reporters on Tuesday at the start of his tour to promote an August 26 boxing match against Irish MMA star Conor McGregor.

The "super fight" will air live on Showtime pay-per-view.
Vargas was never too high on McGregor's chances to begin with. "However, HHH only reiterated what he has already said during an interview with SkySports". "I believe I'll come out of this [Mayweather] fight without a scratch".
