A Crash Course in Choosing the Best Betting sites for your Boxing Bets

Boxing is a great sport to be placing bets on with the thrill of the knock-out or the anxious wait for the points decision. When you begin your search for an online gambling site to bet on this sport, there are plenty of factors that you need to consider.

It’s not just a question of joining the first site that you see online. Spending A bit of time finding out just what individual sites have to offer an avid boxing fan is an excellent idea. A website such as www.scams.info can offer you a great deal of assistance in how you go about choosing the best boxing betting sites.

Trust the Site You Join

it’s important that you become a member of one where your finances are protected. Make sure that you join a site that is properly licensed and regulated, for example by the UK Gambling Commission or Gibraltar Government.  This is important because if you do have any complaints about them, they have someone to answer to.

Join a site that has good customer support because the last thing you want is to not be sure about something and not have anyone to help you out. Look for a site that has online chat, that you can phone and has a helpful FAQs page.

It’s also important to become a member of an online gambling site that has plenty of payment methods. Don’t join up with a website that makes charges when it comes to deposits and withdrawals and take ages for your cash to return to your chosen payment method.

Plenty to Bet On

You’ll be wanting to become a member of a website that offers odds (highly competitive ones of course) on plenty of fights. Join up with a site that gives odds on the undercard matches not just the main events.

Ante-post betting is popular too and with some sites it’s possible to place bets on fights that haven’t even been confirmed yet.  They give odds on future match-ups such as Wilder v Joshua and if they don’t happen by the given date, your stake is returned.

Mobile Action

Becoming a member of a site that has a mobile app is also recommended. You’ll be able to follow all the action wherever you are, and some sites also offer promotions that are exclusive to their mobile customers.

Lots of Markets

Gone are the days when you just bet on who was going to win the big fight or whether it might even end in a draw (always a handy bet at good odds). Now there are lots of markets available for fights and it’s important that you sign-up with a website that supplies them.

You can bet on how the fight will end and in which round. There’s group betting available too allowing you to bet a fight might finish in rounds 1-3 or 4-6. All of this adds to the excitement of your boxing bet as you hope a fight ends when you have bet that it will. The more markets available the better for a gambler who loves a flutter on boxing.

In-Play Betting

Being able to place bets while the fight is taking place is essential for a boxing fan. The odds will be constantly changing depending on what’s happening in the ring. It can help you get some better odds too if your selection makes a slow start. Their odds will lengthen, and you can place more bets if still believing they will win. If your selection is having an off-night, in-play betting allows you to put bets on his opponent to try and rescue the situation. Joining a site that has live streaming is even better as you can see the action as it happens.


In a highly competitive market, online gambling sites will attempt to entice new customers with welcome offers. This could be a free bet or enhanced odds such as 40/1 on Joshua to beat Miller. Always check the terms and conditions of such offers as there may be restrictions or wagering requirements. Take a good look at the site to see what promotions they offer. The best sites will have good offers on top boxing matches either offering enhanced odds or guaranteeing their site has the best odds.


There’s a lot to consider when choosing the best boxing sites. Join one you can trust, has good promotions, offers customers lots of help, has plenty of markets available (particularly in-play ones) and has a mobile app.
