Bet on Heavyweight Boxing odds and all the best divisions and tournaments
Heavyweight boxing is poised on the verge of a potential golden era.
The division promises to throw up some tough-to-call bout betting heats between the best around in the years to come.
Potential fights between Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are sure to divide opinion among fans and boxing bettors. William Hill’s boxing odds help to shape the debate.
Not that it’s all about the big men, with welterweight boxing in particular likely to throw up some classics in the not too distant future.
Terence Crawford, Errol Spence Jr and Keith Thurman are all potential hall of famers operating at 147lbs.
Pricing up the odds in potential clashes between them is sure to be a head-scratcher for the William Hill boxing betting traders.
Outside of these two stacked divisions, many other supremely gifted fighters are currently in operation and there are also some exciting tournaments within the weight divisions.
Oleksandr Usyk is the first to unify all four world cruiserweight championship belts, while Vasyl Lomachenko became a three-weight world boss in just his 12th professional fight.
Betting on World Boxing Super Series odds adds a fascinating outright betting angle to the sport, with eight fighters starting each tournament and world titles often changing hands before one pugilist emerges victorious to raise the Muhammad Ali Trophy.
A guide to how to bet on boxing betting odds and the markets available at William Hill
How do betting odds work in boxing? How does boxing betting work? Brace yourselves, you’re about to find out.
Betting on boxing at William Hill is about far more than the most well-known of the markets, bout betting, which is equivalent to the win/draw/win betting in football.
Draws, it should be noted are far less frequent inside the boxing ring and can generally be backed at double-figure odds.
What is round betting in boxing?
Along with method of victory betting, round betting in boxing is one of the most popular markets among those making wagers on the fight game with William Hill.
The most widely known form of round betting tasks bettors with selecting the round in which their chosen fighter will win the fight.
Bigger odds are the chief reward for making selections in this market, with individual rounds usually priced up at more rewarding fractions than likely bout betting outcomes.
If you prefer a greater margin for error, grouped round betting is a great variation on this boxing betting theme.
Fights are usually scheduled for 12 rounds and this allows the opportunity to bet on odds about which quarter or half of the fight one of the protagonists will win it in.
Choosing the way in which the fight will be won is another popular way to bet on boxing, with pundits and tipsters usually offering boxing betting tips for this market in the build-up to big bouts.
Also known as method of victory betting, there are two potential options for each fighter involved, along with the odds on the draw.
The win by KO, TKO or DQ might be favoured if you’re backing a fighter with a proven history of stopping his opponents inside the distance.
Betting on the win by decision (or technical decision) is the alternative method on offer and a winning bet in the event of your fighter earning victory on points, or the more complicated technical decision.
What is a technical decision in boxing? A technical decision is generally a winning boxing bet if the referee decides a fighter is unable to continue due to an injury caused by an accidental collision.
At this point, the fight goes to the judges’ scorecards. In general, if it’s gone beyond the fourth round, whichever boxer is ahead gets the win by technical decision – if not the bout is a technical draw.
Total rounds or ‘fight to go the distance’
Otherwise known as ‘how to bet on boxing odds without having to work out who’s going to win’.
Our total rounds and fight to go the distance betting markets both allow bettors the chance to back their opinion on how long a bout will last.
Total rounds offers bettors odds based on an under/over betting line. This means it’s possible to back either under or over a specified total – 8.5 rounds for example.
Fight to go the distance is an even more straight forward betting market, with yes or no the only outcomes available.
A bout between two fighters whose records lack many knockout victories might be a prime candidate to go the distance.

Tips for betting on boxing
When it comes to tips for betting on boxing the most important things to bear in mind is the importance of research.
Looking into fighters’ records can provide all kinds of information that informs your assessment of the boxing odds and which of the many boxing betting markets to get involved in.
Their overall win-loss-draw records, the proportion of their wins that have come by knockout and how long their fights tend to last are all helpful for bettors, as are their records against mutual opponents.
Gauging the opinions of the numerous boxing insiders, trainers, ex and current professional fighters on the fight you’ll be betting on is another way of getting a good steer on the expected outcome.
Fight location must also be taken into account when working out your boxing bets, with home advantage a potentially-decisive factor in deciding close bouts.
The subjective nature of judging in boxing means that that different judges can see fights very differently and it’s far from unusual for ‘home’ fighters to benefit for fortunate points decisions.
As a result, the locale of the fight, whether it’s London, Las Vegas, or New York City’s famous Madison Square Garden, should always be considered if you’re thinking of betting on a fighter to win on points in the method of victory odds.
