3 Ways to Enhance Your Next Boxing Experience


If you are a boxing fan, then you will know that nothing quite compares to the excitement of a fight night. Whether you are in the ring or not, you will have adrenaline coursing through your body as you wait for the fighters to come out, do their ring walk and start trading blows. Here are some tips to help enhance your next fight night and truly make it a night you won’t forget. 

Watch it Live 

When you’ve bought a fight to watch on TV, it can be really exciting watching at home, especially with your mates. But, it is nothing compared to watching the real thing live and in person. Getting tickets to watch your favourite boxer is the ultimate way to enhance your next boxing fight. 

For the bigger names in the business like Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, tickets can be quite expensive, especially if you are trying to sit ringside. They also tend to hold these events in bigger venues like football stadiums, where the atmosphere will be like nothing you have experienced before. 

If you want to get a bit closer to the action, then you could always look for local clubs that are putting on events in your area. You will usually be much closer to the action, and you may even be seeing the next up-and-coming boxer before they become a big professional. 

Put a Wager on the Event 

Having a bit of skin in the game is always a great way to add to the enjoyment of a big occasion. There are plenty of different ways you can place bets on a boxing match. You can bet on an outright winner, the round they might win in and even the number of times a fighter goes down in the ring.

If you are placing a bet through a betting company like Unibet, then they will be able to give you different odds on the various scenarios happening in the fight. If you are just at home with your mates, then a friendly wager between the lads is enough to get everyone in the mood. 

Start Training Yourself 

You will never quite know how a boxer feels when they are stepping into the ring until you get in there yourself. There are hundreds of different clubs across England that are part of England Boxing, the National Governing Body for the sport in England. A lot of the clubs are happy for you to attend and will do the training even if you don’t want to participate in a fight. 

However, if you love the sport and the idea of getting in the ring, and you do want to give it a go, then going to an amateur club is the best way to get started. Once you know what the adrenaline rush is like when you get into the ring for a fight, you will have much more admiration for the fighters you watch next time you sit down to enjoy a fight.
