...Bet $175 on May by decision. Bet $25 on each of the remaining four alternatives. You break even if May by decision or either guy wins by KO. You'll make money if Canelo by decision or fight is a draw.

IOW, it's a no-lose bet. You'll either break-even or win money, regardless of the outcome.

Unless, I'm missing something?

Yup you are, you would be betting a total of $275

If either of them win by KO you'd only get $150 back and if Canelo won by decisionn you'd get $225 back.

Bookies know you cant make it work like that
