What are boxing bets?
Boxing is one of the most unpredictable sports and dates back to the third millennium BC! Despite this, it has managed to go through time and has remained virtually unchanged today.
Boxing and gambling went hand in hand and were an integral part of each other. Its stakes have a certain effect on the boxers themselves. This is noticeable when half of the crowded hall supports the favorite, and the other – the underdog. As a result, it creates an atmosphere of hatred between boxers and fans, which only adds to the excitement of the fight.
What boxing bets exist?
In this sport, as in any other discipline, there is a winner and a loser. The simplest is to bet on the outcome of the match. Sometimes in the gambling lines, there is only the victory of one or another boxer. A draw in this discipline does not happen so often.
Bookmakers offer to bet on total rounds – in simple words, how many rounds the fight has. A total of 12 rounds are regulated at the professional level. However, novice professionals first conduct 6-round fights. Subsequently, they increase the number of rounds to 8, 10, and actually 12.
How to predict how long the battle will last? If strong knockouts, such as Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, are boxing, there will probably be few rounds. If light fighters with not the strongest blows, it is possible to expect carrying out all fights.
The player can gamble on the method of ending the battle. As you know, a boxing match ends in several ways:
- victory by knockout
- victory by technical knockout (opponent can not continue the fight)
- disqualification of the opponent
- refusal of the opponent to continue the fight
- by points or technical decision of judges.
Other stakes appear in big title fights. Here you can bet on the result of each round, on which round the fight will end. Also, some bookmakers are willing to offer advanced gambling options, such as which of the boxers and in which round will be knocked down.
Why analytics is important in boxing?
Before you start gambling on boxing, you should think about what you know about it. Trying to bet on it “blindly”, just guessing the opponent, will not bring long-term pleasure or gain, and sometimes ends in banal mistakes.
You should understand that boxing is amateur and professional. Until 2013, all amateur fights were held with protective helmets on the heads of boxers.
This was an important factor that could affect the course of the match. The helmet softened the blow a bit, so the weaker opponent could stay in the fight longer.
Unlike mixed martial arts, boxing has strict rules. In particular, it is forbidden to strike below the waist, on the back, on the temple, kidneys, etc. Penalties and even disqualification are punishable for these violations.
It is important to distinguish the styles used by boxers. Perhaps the most famous are the puncher boxers, who win due to their knockout blow. However, there are also counter-punchers who hold the blow and can sharply hit the target.
How to bet on boxing?
To start gambling on the box, the player must decide on the bookmaker where to bet. This is a crucial conclusion, during which you should pay attention to several key points. Of great importance is the rating and reputation of the company. It is important that it has positive feedback and trust from people.
The rules of the game must also be clear to the player. A player should not start a game if he does not understand the rules. This can lead to a banal mistake.
