Similar to most one-on-one competitive sports, the standard method of boxing betting is to wager on the result of the fight. This is similar to betting on the moneyline for team sports. It's also the same as when bettors place wagers on the outright winner in the UFC and tennis. The boxing match format also provides other bet types that can be decided within the fight.
The same as with UFC, bettors can wager how many rounds they think the fight will have, and they can also bet who they think will win.
Generally, bet can be made on the match ending in a knockout, technical knockout, or disqualification. Or bettors can wager on a decision or technical decision if the fight actually goes the distance. If you feel like really taking your chances, you can also bet on a the rare ending that the match ends in a draw or technical draw.
In addition, you can also bet on the over-under of the total number of rounds the fight will last. You can also place a bet type called Round Group Betting; this allows you to wager on the fight ending in Round 1 or 2 or Round 3 or 4, or so on.
To take it one step further, you can also parlay separate outcomes from another fight on the same card. The payout will be substantially larger; but with that, the risk is also much greater.
When it comes to online betting, it’s also important to pick a sportsbook site that works best for you. Just make sure that the site if dependable, responsible, and that you’re actually going to receive your money back with your winnings if you bet correctly. There are a lot of fraudulent sites out there so make sure you’re putting your money in the right place and hands.
