In recent years, the likes of Anthony Joshua and rising stars like Chris Eubank Jnr have brought the sport to life and betting on boxing is majorly on the rise. Whether you’re at home or out with the lads for a big night of fights, it has never been easier to bet on boxing via your mobile phone using some brilliant and innovative bookmaker apps – where you can also grab a free boxing bet if you’re a new customer!
Boxing betting apps for Android – All of the big name bookmaker brands have an app for boxing betting on all the main Android mobile and tablet devices.
These require a simple app file download. Follow these 4 basic steps once you’ve clicked on the Download option on your chosen bookmaker website:
Boxing betting apps for iOS – Betting apps for iOS on Apple devices are even easier than Android, simply because the Apple app store hosts all the big name bookmaker apps for one click download.
First you will need to register with your favourite bookmaker then visit the App store on your Apple phone, use the search facility to find their app, download and get betting on boxing in no time!
Mobile web sites – Along with having great apps for boxing betting, all the best bookmakers will have excellent mobile web sites too, where you can simply go directly to their site via your mobile device’s browser bar, login and play without the need to download an app.
You can even set up a shortcut to their homepage or boxing section on your phone’s home screen.
Whichever bookmaker or sportsbook you use to bet on boxing, once you’re logged in simply navigate the menu to their Sports > Boxing menus and from there, a wealth of boxing matches and their respective betting markets will be available to you.
Only two men step in the ring for a boxing match, so it is the proverbial “two horse race” but there are many different ways to make it more exciting with all these different types of boxing bets:
The ‘Method of Victory’ is perhaps the most popular boxing betting market because it provides a catalyst for debate and conversation among boxing fans.
Anthony Joshua is a renowned knock-out (KO) artist for example, so he will be favoured to win by KO/TKO in his fights. By contrast somebody like Floyd Mayweather is best known for his “Decision” wins, outpointing his rivals over the entire 12 rounds of the fight.
Across a 12 round boxing match there is 24 different betting options on both fighters for you to predict a) which fighter will win and b) in which round.
So you can get some very big prices and great betting value in these markets. Bookmakers will also give you the option to bet on “the fight to go the distance”, along with coupling of rounds to give you a more solid bet if you fancy the fight to end in rounds 1-3, 4-6, 7-9 or 10-12 for example in a 12 round title fight.
The betting odds for many boxing matches can be a little one-sided since unless it is a title fight, you will generally have a strong favourite against a clear underdog.
A prime example is in the upcoming Floyd Mayweather Jr Vs Conor McGregor super fight, in which Mayweather is the hot 1/6 favourite and McGregor is the 5/1 underdog.
But by using the different types of boxing bets as explained above, you will have the chance to back up your opinion whilst getting some great value boxing odds. Sometimes the bookmaker boxing odds are a lot closer, like the Gennady Golovkin (8/13) and Canelo Alvarez (5/4) fight, where you have two world class boxers going toe to toe with similar ability.
Boxing ultimately comes down to your personal opinions and gut feel of the fighters and your success when betting on boxing.
Any betting will involve a lot of luck of course, but your knowledge of each fighter’s background, attributes and skills will give you an invaluable edge when making your boxing bets.
If you know a fighter has KO power and usually finishes their fights in the first few rounds, then you can back up your opinion accordingly. The same applies for more technical boxers with less KO power who tend to win more fights by Decision.
The online bookmakers will always have some amazing free boxing bets, price boosts and boxing betting promotions for all the big fights to grab your attention. But remember, just by signing-up with a new online bookmaker you will usually get a tasty free bet or welcome offer that you are free to use on any sport including boxing.
Then there are ‘Enhanced Odds’ sign-up offers such as Paddy Power’s amazing 40/1 for Conor McGregor to beat Floyd Mayweather which gives you a chance to take advantage of some amazing boxing odds. Keep an eye out on our website for all the latest boxing free bet promotions.
You can bet on boxing at any bookmakers online via desktop PC and of course, in today’s mobile world of smartphones and tablets there’s also a fantastic array of sports and boxing betting apps available.
Here are the two we think are the best to start off with:
There has never been a better time to bet on boxing via your mobile phones.
