How to Bet on Boxing
Bets on the outcome. In boxing, as in any competition, there is a winner and a loser. Betting on the outcome in boxing is the main type of betting. Often in the bookmaker's lines, there is only it (victory of one or the second boxer). However, there are cases of fixing tied outcomes (rarely).
In betting lines it is worth paying attention to the presence of a draw outcome. If it is not there, it is better to see the rules of the bookmaker's office - how it will calculate the best in the boxing, if a draw happens.

Betting on round totals. In professional boxing, there are usually 12 rounds. Bets on round totals are bets on how many rounds the fight will last. If we have strong knockout fighters in front of us, there may not be many rounds. If light fighters with not the strongest punches, we can expect the whole fight to last.
Betting on the method of ending the fight. Boxing fight can end in several ways: victory by knockout, victory by technical knockout (the opponent can not continue the fight), disqualification of the opponent, the opponent's refusal to continue the fight, on points or technical decision of the judges. In this category of bets, it is also better to study the rules of the bookmaker's office - how it will evaluate this or that end of the fight.
Other boxing bets appear in big title fights. Here you can bet on the outcome of each particular round, on which round the fight will end. Also, some bookmakers are ready to offer extended betting options, like which boxer and in which round will be knocked out.
How to bet on boxing
The boxing betting strategy may seem simple at first sight: there is a favorite, there is an underdog, and in the bookmaker's lines everything is obvious. However, do not get excited: bookmakers would not offer bets on the sport if it were so predictable.
Often the odds on the underdog are exaggerated
Bookmakers often artificially lowers the odds on the favorite and respectively increases the odds on the underdog. In today's boxing there are hardly any undefeated fighters (they are very few) and the status of the favorite is more the name accumulated during the years of his professional career than the bookmaker's estimate.
Mistaken assessment of a boxer's form can be costly
Since boxing is an individual sport, a mistake in assessing a fighter's current form actually deprives the player of the chance to win a bet. If a boxer has an old untreated injury or a wrong sparring partner was chosen for training, or the coach chose the wrong tactics, the bet will be lost. Unfortunately, in the world of sports betting on boxing, just like in the ring, mistakes are not forgiven.
