The sport can be hugely unpredictable, with a single punch potentially changing a fight at any given moment, but this guide is designed to help you win the battle with the bookmakers.
Take a look at our in-depth reviews on the different sites offering boxing betting odds, to boost your hopes of securing profits from your bets. The simplest way to bet on boxing is to choose which fighter will win the contest. Other boxing betting odds offered on a fight include selecting how many rounds you think the contest will last. Bookmakers in the UK will offer you odds on whether there will be over or under those number of rounds.
You can also bet on how the fight will end, with odds available for a knockout, a win on points or by technical knockout. Round betting is also extremely popular, with punters wagering on the exact round they think the fight will finish. Double figure odds are the norm in this market, giving you the chance to gain a significant return if you can pick the correct round. The sport of boxing contains some huge stars across the various weight classes, with the likes of Mayweather and Pacquiao becoming household names through their exploits in the ring.
In the UK, top fighters such as Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are featured regularly on television, whilst former boxers like Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank remain famous for their previous explosive clashes. When two fighters have comparable records, factors such as age or who has the most to prove can also come into it. Before every contest the fighters will undergo an intensive training programme.
Reports of poor sparring sessions, problems making the weight or suffering a knockout in a previous fight should certainly factor into your deliberations. Home advantage can also play a part, with fighters known to get an adrenaline rush from boxing in front of their own fans.
Fights that go the distance often go the way of the home boxer, with judges often reluctant to award the visiting fighter a points victory. Online sites offer plenty of ways to enjoy boxing betting. Knowledge of the sport and understanding the types of markets available are the key to learning how to bet on boxing.
The majority of professional boxing matches contain 10 three-minute rounds, with title fights taking place over 12 three-minute rounds. Doing your research is vital when learning how to bet on boxing.
In the UK there are big boxing fights almost every week throughout the year. Some of the most popular weight classes include heavyweight and middleweight, with fighters tasked with making their way up the rankings before securing a shot at a world title. Events like the World Boxing Super Series have become increasingly popular in recent times, with groups of fighters taking part in knockout tournaments. The usual format sees eight fighters contest four quarter-finals, with the winners moving on to semi-finals and then a final.
Olympic boxing is the pinnacle of the sport at amateur level, with fighters battling through four or five contests over the course of two weeks in the hope of securing a gold medal.
Boxing betting requires research, but clever punters can make a decent profit from the fight game. Undefeated fighters are always worth following until they lose, but make sure you check the quality of opponents they have faced. Some boxers rely on their defensive skills, whilst others constantly look for a quick knockout. Fighters can often be regarded as out-and-out brawlers, purely reliant on brute force to win a contest.
When pitted against a fighter with superior boxing skills this can be a recipe for disaster.
