Boxing as a sport
Boxing is one of the oldest sports we have and it was practiced all the way back in 668 B.C. With such a long history it has undergone some changes and as it is hard to know exactly how it looked like and how it was practiced in Ancient Greece, it is probably quite different today. First of all due to gear being used, such as gloves and headgear to protect the boxers, but also because it is most likely much more formalized with rounds, time limits as well as weight divisions to divide people into groups well-fitted to fight each other.
Different rules have been put into order and have been the formal frame around the sports. Each match consists of rounds of three minutes and the matches can be anything from four to twelve rounds. Most likely the ones with twelve rounds are professional matches with champion boxers and the ones on fewer rounds are upcoming boxers or match-up matches.
How to bet on boxing
Betting on boxing is somewhat similar to betting on other sports. Even though it is not two teams competing but only two people. Betting lines in boxing use a similar betting line as they coin a favorite and an underdog of the match. And the most common bet is of course betting on who will win the match.
Whether they bet on the favorite or the underdog it is a popular betting option. Closely followed by betting on how many rounds the bout will go for. Even though there are betting lines guiding you, these factors can be pretty hard to predict as there are so many factors involved in a match. And how many rounds it will continue depends on how much the boxers can handle which depends on how the match plays out and can be hard to predict.
