On Friday, an anonymous bettor in Las Vegas placed an $880,000 wager on Floyd Mayweather Jr. to defeat Conor McGregor when they duke it out Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena.
According to ESPN.com's David Purdum, the bet "is believed to be the largest placed on the fight in Las Vegas at this point."
The slip, which Vegas Stats & Information's Mitch Moss posted on Twitter, shows the bettor took Mayweather at -550 (bet $550 to win $100):

Whoa! The money is starting to come in on @FloydMayweather at the @southpointlv. Biggest bet in Vegas yet? @VSiNLive https://t.co/Kw4VGDOQPe2017-8-11 20:05:16
Purdum noted that while the slip says there's a payout of $120,000, the actual winnings would total $160,000. That's because South Point Casino's computer system doesn't print slips with payouts over $1 million.
As a workaround, South Point reportedly decided to print up a pair of $440,000 slips for the anonymous bettor.
As of Friday, Mayweather remained a -550 favorite, with McGregor penciled in as a +375 (bet $100 to win $375) underdog.
Those numbers represent a significant shift from the opening odds in November that had Mayweather listed at -2250 and McGregor at +950.
