Get Started with Fighting Odds and Boxing Betting

Whether you love the speed and flight of foot in the Featherweight division, or the awesome power of the Heavyweights, boxing is one of the most enduringly popular sports in the world.

The last few years have been especially interesting for boxing, and in particular for the Heavyweight division. The Anthony Joshua prophecy is coming to realisation, with the knockout out former champion, Wladimir Klitschko, in front of a packed Wembley Stadium, living up to its billing as the fight of the year in 2017, as the Brit became the biggest name in world boxing.

Indeed, all eyes are on the Heavyweight division now, with some champion contenders in the form of Anthony Joshua, Joseph Parker, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury seemingly set to return the glory days to the division.

But boxing hasn’t been without its critics, with the opinion-dividing “super fight” between the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather and UFC’s star attraction, Conor McGregor, causing heated debated amongst fight fans. What can’t be debated though, is that it was a serious money maker – so we can surely expect many more crossover fights in the not too distant future.

And if you’re looking to add some knockout excitement of your own, you can get the latest fight odds in Mr Green’s boxing betting markets.

How to Bet on Boxing

There are many ways that you can bet on boxing – as is typical with any fighting sports betting. The most obvious of which is match outcome betting, i.e. who will win the fight. But this is just the start when it comes to boxing betting markets. Other popular betting markets in the sport include: the method of victory (i.e. knockout or decision), round betting and the total number of rounds.

Boxing winner betting

Boxing Winner Betting

Backing a boxer to win a contest is the most obvious and self-explanatory bet you can make. And some shrewd boxing knowledge can certainly help you back a good value underdog. However, the limited number of outcomes (i.e. boxer 1 wins, boxer 2 wins, or an unlikely draw) means that it can be hard to get big odds on these markets – unless you’re gunning for multiple fighters to win and you want to put these into an accumulator.

Boxing Betting victory method

Method of Victory Betting

One way to increase your value when betting on boxing is to bet on the method of victory. This increases the total number of potential outcomes of ‘winner’ betting from three possibilities to five – and thus boosting your odds.
For example, if you think Anthony Joshua will beat his opponent – let’s say Deontay Wilder – you’ll likely get relatively short odds on the Brit winning the fight. However, your odds would be boosted if you back Joshua to win via knockout (or decision). Indeed, the potential outcomes with method of victory betting are: boxer 1 wins via knockout or disqualification, boxer 1 wins by decision, boxer 2 wins via knockout or disqualification, boxer 2 wins by decision, or a draw.

Round betting

Round Betting

One of the most famous and most popular boxing betting markets, though, is round betting.
In round betting, you select the winner of the fight, and in which round you think it will end, e.g. Joshua to win in round six. Again, this can give you some of the best boxing odds, as this is much harder to predict than just the winner of the fight.
Alternative round betting markets also allow you to group rounds together (e.g. 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12) to provide you with more leeway with your wager.

Total rounds betting

Total Rounds Betting

If you think a fight is too close to call in terms of picking a winner, with online boxing betting, you can instead bet on how many rounds you think the fight will go – regardless of who wins. This is an especially good bet for volatile fights in which someone could land an early knockout, or for ones that seem like they will inevitably go the distance.

Boxing Live betting

Boxing Live Betting

But if you really want to the excitement of watching a big fight, boxing live betting can add a whole new level of intrigue. With live betting, you can bet mid-contest on any number of outcomes – which is great if you can see the fight panning out a certain way after the opening exchanges. Like with pre-fight betting, you back bet on the winner of the fight, the method of victory and even the number of rounds.
