British Boxing Betting
Considering the general concept with boxing is two people knocking seven bells out of each other in a ring the world boxing scene is rather complicated and convoluted, so it's best to do your homework before placing any bets. Each weight division will have different belts to win via the different boxing federations. The World Heavyweight Boxing division is one of the most popular for betting and has captured the imagination of the British betting public over the years.

Popular Boxing Bets
The most popular bet in boxing terms is simply to back the boxer you think will win the fight. The odds are laid out exactly as they would where there is a possibility of three outcomes, with either boxer winning or an unlikely draw. You will find that the odds can be quite short where the favourite is concerned with the majority of fights as they are rarely equal contests.
Have a bet on how many rounds you think there will be in the fight. The bookmaker will set up a line as to how many they think there will be and will offer you odds on whether there will be over or under those amount of rounds. There are usually 12 rounds in professional bouts but make sure you know how many rounds there will be before placing your bet.
Method of Victory Odds
You can bet on the way you think the fight will be won and bookmakers will put up odds on whether the fight will be won by knockout or on points, or even by technical knockout. It's a fun bet to have if you want better value odds on a fight. Check the records of the boxers before placing your bet, as some boxers may have weaker chins than the other.
