How to bet on boxing matches – A simple guide
Boxing matches are incredibly exciting, even with amateur boxers like Jake Paul! However, what if you could increase that excitement even more? There is a great way to do this – by betting on boxing matches! Many sportsbooks offer wagers on popular boxing matches and title bouts. This can be a tricky process, however, so we have created a simple 6-step guide to show you the ropes below.
Step 1 – Choose an online sportsbook
The first step is to find an online sportsbook! It must provide bets on boxing matches obviously. There are other things to look out for too though. Firstly, the sportsbooks should be licensed. A licensed platform must comply with regulations, making it much safer.
Secondly, look at the security of the website and the payment methods they offer. This gives you peace of mind, but also ensures that you can easily place a bet on your desired boxing match.
We would also advise looking at their dedicated boxing section and checking the types of bets they have available. For example, they may offer individual round bets, and even advanced statistical bets.
Step 2 – Register an account and collect your welcome bonus
Once you are happy with your choice of sportsbook, it is time to register an account. Here is the time to make use of any welcome promotion such as a Betway promo, deposit bonus or even free bets. Oftentimes, you have to enter a bonus code during the registration process to activate an offer.
Simply follow the registration process as instructed. This usually involves entering personal details such as your name, date of birth and address. You may also have to verify the registration by clicking a link in an activation email.
Step 3 – Find the boxing section and matches
With your account registered, you should now have full access to the tools and sections that the sportsbook has to
offer. You should navigate to the boxing section and familiarize yourself with its layout and how the bets for individual matches look.
You can then find the match you want to place bets on and also look at the other available matches too. Oftentimes, sportsbooks cover multiple matches and will have previews of upcoming bouts too.
Step 4 – Study the individual bets available
With the match selected, you can look at the different available bets. Most sportsbooks that specialize in boxing will provide a wide range of bets. Simple bets usually include the overall winner, and the method of winning — points score or knock-out.
However, there is also typically a selection of advanced bets. These could include wagers for individual rounds and
the outcome of each round. For example, you could bet on the winner of round one and the method. You should
spend some time looking at the bets and choose ones you want to place wagers on.
Step 5 – Make a deposit and place your bet
You have registered an account and found the match you want to bet on! The next step is to deposit some money into your account.
Once you have logged into your account, head to the banking or account section. Here, you should be able to make a deposit. This is a simple process – just select the desired payment method such as PayPal or Visa and enter the deposit amount. You may then have to enter your banking details in a third-party pop-up. With money in your account, you can place a bet.
Make sure that you have studied the betting structure thoroughly and understand exactly what you are doing. Also, double-check that you have entered the correct amount for the correct bet.
Step 6 – Enjoy the bout and (hopefully) collect your winnings
With all that hard work done, you can get into the action and watch the fight unfold. Hopefully you get to see an epic bout like the 2009 Pacquiao vs Hatton duel. This was a legendary fight and was also voted as the 2009 knockout of the year by Ringside magazine. As the two titans duke it out, the match hopefully unfolds as you predicted, and your bet is successful.
We hope you have found this guide on how to bet on boxing matches useful. This initial process may seem long-
winded, however, once you have found a sportsbook and registered an account, you do not need to do that again.
Subsequent matches will be far easier to bet on.
