With the preliminary hype surrounding the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor fight reaching a bit of a calm before the storm, Mayweather went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk up the fight—and, as he often does, offer some betting advice.

Mayweather is plenty confident, it seems—so confident, in fact, that he promised to compensate Kimmel for whatever amount of money he bets on Mayweather if he loses. If Mayweather were to lose, of course, it’s hard to imagine the amicable talk show host rushing to dump salt in the wounds by asking for his money back after what would amount to a stunning upset.

The two transitioned to a discussion of the various prop bets being offered, ranging from realistic to ridiculous. (One bet: Whether Lil’ Wayne would accompany Mayweather to the ring, and if he’d do so shirtless.)
