Boxing betting guide
Boxing is as popular as ever. There are some fantastic up and coming fighters and Britain has some new champions to be proud of. The prize money on offer to these fighters mean the contests are heavily fought with some frightening hooks, punches and knockouts.
The world class fights continue into 2016 and the weigh-ins are bound to be as electrifying as the fights themselves. There are going to be some huge bouts this year with some grueling re matches. Once again we’ll see Tyson Fury enter the ring with Wiadimir Klitschko in what will be a much anticipated and hard fought battle between these two heavyweights.
This year sees Manny Pacquiao step into the ropes for the last time. The Filipino has had a blistering boxing career and he will be looking to finish on a high.

Boxing betting markets
Bookies love to get in on the boxing action and make this a fantastic sport to bet on. There are a number of ways to bet on this sport and we love the method of victory option. You can bet on how the fight will be won from a boxer being disqualified, to knockout or technical decision. You can also bet on when a boxer will win a fight with round betting. Choose the boxer and often a bookie will give a range of rounds when they will be victorious. Obviously knowing a fighters previous record helps here, however there are some great potential returns.
Of course there is the option to bet simply who will win and some bookies now offer a cash out option; place a bet on a particular fighter and if you think the bout isn’t going their way cash out early for at least some return on your stake. Boxing is also an Olympic sport, which means there are even more opportunities to bet on this market.
The Boxing Calendar
This year sees some huge fights taking place. Early on the calendar Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg will fight it out for the IBF and WBA world super-bantamweight belts. Meanwhile Julio Ceja will take on Hugo Ruiz for the WBC super-bantamweight title. Shortly after in Sheffield Kell Brook and Kevin Bizier will compete for the IBF welterweight, whilst at the same time the ever improving and exciting Chris Eubank Jr takes on Nick Blackwell in London.
April is a huge month for boxing. Boxing fans will be sad to see Manny Pacquiao hang up his gloves after his fight against his big rival Timothy Bradley. Pacquiao lost against the American in 2012 however won in the rematch. In the mean time the O2 arena in London sees Anthony Joshua enter the ring against Charles Martin.
Amir Khan travels across the pond the lights of Las Vegas in May to fight it out with Saul Alvarez for the WBC world middleweight championship. Later on David Haye is expected to return to the ring.
Some fights nights have yet to be announced so it is well worth keeping a check on when the likes of Fury and Klitschko go head to head in their much anticipated re match.
