Boxing

General Rules

  1. Date: If the fight does not take place for any reason and is started again within 48 hours after the original start date, then – unless otherwise specified – all bets count for the rescheduled fight. If the fight does NOT start within 48 hours after the original start date, then all bets will be void.
    • Future Fights: The one exception to the 48-hour rule is fights that have been set up before the exact date is known. They will be reclassified under the correct event and date, once an official announcement has been made. These fights will only be voided if either fighter is scheduled to fight another opponent instead. Once a fight has been reclassified, it is then subject to the 48-hour rule as normal.
    • www.boxrec.com will be used as the official results page for any final decisions.
  2. If a rescheduled fight takes place in a country different from the original country, then all bets will be void. If a fight is rescheduled and takes place at a different venue but in the same country, then all bets are valid.
  3. The result at the end of the contest is final. This includes any recounts of the judges’ scorecards. For betting purposes, any contest declared a ‘technical tie’ will result in a tie being deemed the winning option. Any subsequent changes made by governing bodies do not count for betting purposes.
  4. Total Points/Rounds (Over/Under): If the fight is abandoned before its completion then all bets will be void, unless the highest possible total to bet on has already been attained, in which case all bets stand. If a boxer fails to start a round, then the previous completed round is considered the last round of the fight. Where half a round is stated, the halfway point of the respective round (1 minute 30 seconds for 3-minute rounds or 2 minutes 30 seconds for 5 minute rounds) will determine the under or over. If a contest lands exactly on the specified half round time, the result will be considered ‘Over’ (Eg: Total is over/under 1.5 rounds and the contest ends at 1:30 of the 2nd round – the ‘Over’ will be the winner).
  5. Knockdown/Count in Round: Only knockdowns that lead to a ‘count’ from the referee or if the referee initiates a ‘count’ will qualify for this bet.
  6. Individual Round betting: Bets will be settled based on the round during which the bout ends. If a boxer fails to start a round, then the previous completed round is considered the ‘winning’ result for this bet. If for any reason, the number of rounds is changed before the fight, all round by round bets will be considered invalid.
  7. Ties: If a fight ends in a tie and no odds have been offered for this option, all bets will be void.
  8. Victory Method: All bets will be settled on the official result declared. If, for any reason, the number of rounds is changed before the fight, all bets stand.
    Offered options:

    • KO: When a fighter fails to stand up after a 10 count.
    • TKO: When the fight is stopped by the referee or one fighter retires.
    • Technical Decision: When the fight is stopped by a cut/injury not caused by a punch, and decided by the judges’ scorecards before the scheduled number of rounds is completed.
    • Disqualification: When the fight is stopped and the referee declares one or both fighters as disqualified.
    • On Points: When the fight is decided by the judges’ scorecards at the conclusion of the scheduled number of rounds.
    • Tie: When the judges’ scorecards are a tie, or when the referee stops the fight and declares a technical tie.
