How Do You Bet on Boxing?

Last Updated:

To bet on boxing in the United States, you must use a legal and licensed sportsbook. Betting on boxing is a popular form of sports betting, and many sportsbooks offer a variety of options to choose from.

The most common way to bet on boxing is to wager on the winner of a specific match. These wagers are typically made using the moneyline, which indicates how much you need to bet to win $100 or how much you can win by betting $100. For example, if a fighter has a moneyline of -200, you would need to bet $200 to win $100. If the fighter has a moneyline of +200, you would win $200 by betting $100.

Another popular way to bet on boxing is to wager on the total number of rounds that will be fought. Sportsbooks will set a line for the total number of rounds, and bettors can wager on whether they think the actual number of rounds fought will be over or under that line.

You can also bet on other outcomes such as whether a fighter will win by knockout, technical knockout, or decision. Some sportsbooks also offer prop bets such as which round the fight will end in, or whether a specific fighter will win by a specific method.

To place a bet on boxing, you will need to sign up for an account with a legal and licensed sportsbook. You can find legal sportsbooks on Betting Hero’s sportsbook page here: Once you have created an account and deposited funds, you can browse the available boxing matches and place your bets.
