From Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather at light middleweight to big-hitters such as Wladimir Klitschko up in the heavyweight division, boxing has produced those with real star quality over the years and it remains one of the most endearing sports on the planet.

In recent times we have witnessed the emergence of Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Joseph Parker within the heavyweight division, a section of the sport once more leading the way when it comes to drawing in new fans as well as those looking to bet on the outcome of major bouts.

It goes without saying however that boxing still attracts its share of criticism, never more so than when fans of the sport and those preferring UFC could not agree on who is best between Mayweather and Conor McGregor, the fight itself doing nothing to halt the debate which rages on.

What is not up for discussion however is that the fight, and others like it, remain terrific box office generating huge amounts of money and if you want to feel even closer to the sport yourself, check out Mr Green’s boxing betting pages for a list of the latest fighting odds.

Betting on Boxing

There are few tactics you can use when it comes to boxing betting, just as there are with many events listed on our sportsbook, with the most popular being the overall outcome, in other words which boxer wins the bout.

This is a sport however in which the overall outcome is only one of a myriad of angles we can bet on, fighting odds also including victory method such as ‘knockout’, round betting or how many rounds the fight will last in total.

Boxing winner betting

Betting on the Winner

Overall fighting odds, with only two results realistically possible in most cases, differ wildly especially when there is a big favourite so betting on one boxer to win the fight is obvious and doesn’t always pay so well – unless you successfully bet the outsider of course!

Sometimes the only way to really make this sort of boxing betting pay is to back a few fighters to win in a multiple bet, something that can lead to a higher pay out if you get it all correct.

Boxing Betting victory method

Betting on the Victory Method

Betting on this is a good way to enhance the value of your wager.  The method of victory increases your overall number of possible outcomes.  Instead of three outcomes; boxer A, boxer B or the draw, you now have five to pick from and therefore your fighting odds are generally greater.

For instance, should you believe that Tyson Fury will beat his opponent but his price seems a little skinny, you can boost this yourself by attempting to predict exactly how he will win.  Backing Fury to win via knockout for example will always lead to a better price than simply backing the overall win, something ever increasing in popularity within boxing betting.  Your potential outcomes and methods of victory are:

Boxer A to win by knockout/disqualification
Boxer A to win by decision
Boxer B to win by knockout/disqualification
Boxer B to win by decision

Round betting

Betting on the Victory Round

Fighting odds are always sought by backers looking to correctly predict exactly which round the fight will end in.  Round betting means you choose the overall fight winner and which round you believe they will end the contest; i.e. ‘Wilder to win the fight in round 8’.

Given that this sort of prediction is difficult, your odds are invariably boosted greatly but boxing betting allows you to hedge your bets slightly by betting on ‘alternative round markets’, in other words ‘the fight to end in rounds 1 to 3, 7 to 9 etc).

Total rounds betting

Betting on Total Number of Rounds

If it reaches the point that you cannot decide on a winner and you don’t want to back a certain fighter, you can instead simply bet on how long you believe the fight will last in terms of total rounds.  This way it doesn’t matter who wins the fight, as long as it ends just when you predicted it would!

Boxing Live betting

Live Boxing Betting

All of the above options allow you to find the perfect fighting odds for you, but the experience is enhanced greatly by betting on boxing live as it happens.

Live boxing betting means you have the chance to bet during the bout on a whole host of possible outcomes, meaning you can listen to commentary and see the fighters in action, perhaps getting a feel for who you think is coming out on top.

Just as in the pre-fight boxing betting odds, you can bet on the victory method, overall fight winner and also rounds.
