Boxing uses money line and its pretty straightforward in A regards to wagering, as the odds will given next to boxer’s name.
For example, the odds on a hypothetical boxing match would be something similar to the following.

If you wager on Pacquiao, you will have to risk $200 to win $100, but if you wager on Hatton you are asked to risk $100 to win $150. If you believed the fight will end in a draw, then you have to risk $100 to win $2,000.
It’s important to note that you don’t have to wager $100 to win $150, you can risk $20 to win $30, but moneyline odds are given in terms of $100 wagers.
On boxing bets, your fighter must win the fight or you lose your wager. If the fight is declared a draw, bets on both fighters are declared losers. If you bet on the draw, then congratulations, you just won a nice chunk of change.
it’s important to note that if the fight you are betting on does not have the option of a betting on a draw and fights end in a draw, all wagers are refunded , as it is treated like a tie bet in other sports.
Proposition bets also known as prop bets, are wagers where you must make more specific choices than simply which fighter will win a fight or how long the fight will last. Proposition Bets allow you to bet on different aspects of a fight. The bigger the fight, the more prop bets will be available. Bookmakers are typically willing to offer prop bets related to the round in which a fight will end in a knockout or the number of knockdowns a fighter will cause. These types of bets are usually listed with a money line odds format. Here’s an example of what a “round of knockout” prop might look like:
Pacquiao in rounds 1-3 +400
Pacquiao in rounds 4-6 +280
Pacquiao in rounds 7-9 +220
Pacquiao in rounds 10-12 +200
Mayweather in rounds 1-3 +350
Mayweather in rounds 4-6 +240
Mayweather in rounds 7-9 +200
Mayweather in rounds 10-12 +180
No knockouts (fight goes the distance) -140
The most popular proposition bet are the over and under for how long the fight lasts. The wager works in the same manner as an over or under bet in other sports. Instead of betting that will be over or under a certain number of points scored, you are betting over or under a certain number of rounds taking place. For another hypothetical example:
Over 6 full rounds -150
Under 6 full rounds 120
If you wager over the six full rounds, you will win your bet as long as both fighters are in the ring for the start of seventh round. if you wager on under the six full rounds, you will win your wager provided the fight is stopped anytime prior to the bell signalingthe end of round No. 6.
If the fight stop between the fight of sixth round and the beginning of seventh round, all Over/Under bets would be declared losers.
A parlay is a type of bet that requires you to make multiple predictions, and order for you to win they must all be correct. If there’s 8 to 10 fights going on the particular night, and you really love who you think will win in two of them, you can parlay both of them to win and get a better payout if they both win than if you just bet each of them straight up. It’s a simple higher risk higher reward scenario since if you do bet each fighter straight up, and 1 out of 2 win, you still get to cash in a ticket.
