Boxing: Conor McGregor vs Luke Keeler Odds
It appears that UFC celebrity Conor”Notorious” McGregor might be back in action again for very first time because UFC 229 last October, however, it might be a return to the boxing ring rather than the Octagon. His competitor you ask? Manny Pacquaio? Canelo Alvarez? Paulie Malignaggi? Luke Keeler, wait ? Irish boxer Luke Keeler challenged his fellow countryman and took a shot McGregor on social websites regarding a pub incident in mid-August.
Online sportsbook BetOnline has set out two lines regarding this spat about if the battle will take place in 2019 with”Yes” arriving in at +450 and”No” coming back at -700. In addition, a line at the event that this fight does occur and that has Keeler as a -225 favorite with McGregor coming straight back at +175.
McGregor finds himself in the spotlight for the wrong motive outside the Octagon. The Ireland indigenous has a background of as he was arranged five days of community service and had been arrested for throwing a dolly in a UFC bus ahead of UFC 223 in early April of 2018 and had to do anger management courses. Fast forward to early March of the former two-division winner and also the year was in trouble again for allegedly shooting a guy’s telephone and smashing against it. Charges and the litigation were dismissed.
Presently, a movie was released in mid-August of the year of McGregor becoming in an altercation with a older guy at a pub following a dispute over some whiskey, it appears, and also the UFC fighter threw a left hit which hit the man in the face. Fighter Luke Keeler who maintains McGregor did the same issue to some friend of his years and issued a challenge game. Both exchanged words onto the telephone and agreed to a bout.
I am torn on this. This is another chance for McGregor to get in the ring after some warmth, make some money and if he won, a legitimate boxing game, it could wake up rumors of fighting even a Floyd Mayweather rematch or Manny Pacquiao. Furthermore, with Zuffa Boxing getting set to debut which will be run Dana White by UFC president, this could be a enormous occasion for their series which would get lots of sign-ups and eyes .
On the flip side, White might not want his prized possession to get into the general public and risk which would be the third loss in McGregor’s past four conflicts and directly in boxing. Using a loss to Keeler, any other boxing game with McGregor or the Mayweather rematch would likely be dashed.
I feel that this struggle would take place behind closed doors perhaps at the house fitness center of Keeler. Comparable to the feud leading the May-Mac fight in 2017 upward. Now, fellow Fact Shark contributors Iain MacMillan and Joe Osborne believe on cashing in with this bout that people would not pass up, I feel that the reward may be outweighed by the risk.
One is his conditioning he claims he is always working on. Notorious did land a fresh left uppercut on Mayweather, a magician in the ring but it affected the boxer. It begs the issue does he possess the punching power to the amount of boxers that train on punching instead of fretting about kicks, clinches and grappling.
Meanwhile, the Keeler has steadily risen the middleweight (160 pounds ) division and is the fourth-ranked fighter in the WBO middleweight positions and is top-ranked middleweight in Ireland. He’s unbeaten in his last eight fights because his loss to because he dropped in 2015 to Doran as well the only man he’s dropped. Keeler is quite competitive and can continue to keep a good speed for the period of a bout.
McGregor is a little unconventional and punches does throw from angles that capture the more boxing style. Additionally, he does a very fantastic job in countering which he must have plenty of chances to do from a forward-moving fighter such as Keeler. All of that being said, Keeler has good conditioning and could drag McGregor into waters that are deep and??put him off. I believe in the end in this bout with McGregor winning the remaining portion of the game closing out, a determination would be scored by Keeler.
Here’s a look at the likelihood of this bout:
