$880,000 bet in Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight largest so far on bout

$880,000 bet in Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight largest so far on bout

A Las Vegas casino on Friday took a bet on Floyd Mayweather so large that the sportsbook computer system couldn't handle it.

An anonymous bettor at the South Point Casino placed an $880,000 bet on Mayweather to beat Conor McGregor in a boxing match that is attracting major betting action in Las Vegas.

The $880,000 bet is believed to be the largest placed on the fight in Las Vegas at this point.

The misprint was caused by a rule in South Point's bookmaking system that does not permit payouts of greater than $1 million, according to sportsbook director Chris Andrews.

For every one bet on Mayweather at MGM's sportsbook, there have been 27 on McGregor, according to assistant manager Jeff Stoneback.
