Below are two tips and tactics to help you with your boxing betting strategies:
Injuries, and KOs
Boxing is a physical sport, so inevitably it comes with injuries, these can put a fighter out for long periods of time, from a few weeks to years. Bettors will want to use this information to determine how an injury or injuries throughout a boxer’s career can impact a fighter on their return to the ring. This information can be easily gathered by reading articles online or by tuning in to press reports. It is safe to assume that an opponent fighter will want to play on a fighter’s injury to gain maximum points. The mental side of a previous knockout loss might also play a part in a game, so bettors should examine that angle as well to determine if a boxer might be prone to a loss because of a previous fight, be it with the same fighter in the ring or a different one. Some bettors look into previous results from last year to determine how a fight might pan out.
The pre-match weigh-in, which takes place a day before a boxing match, can lead boxers who miss the cut to go through radical measures to make sure they make the cut. This may include fasting before a match, which can leave some fighters exhausted before the first punch is even thrown. Therefore, bettors should be aware of the weigh-in process as another variable to consider before placing a wager.
