You're betting on: which fighter will win and whether they win it during the fight, or on points/decision.

  • Win in rounds 1-12 by KO/TKO/DQ: When a boxer fails to beat the referee’s 10 count after a knockdown, or referee steps in to stop the fight. Any corner retirement will be classed as a TKO.
  • Win on Decision/Technical Decision - A points victory: A Decision victory is a fighter to win on the judges’ scorecards after all the scheduled rounds are completed. A Technical Decision is settled by the judges’ scorecards at any time other than at the end of the scheduled rounds, usually due to an accidental injury.
  • Win on Decision/Technical Decision - Technical Decision: When a fighter is unable to carry on due to a cut/injury that wasn’t caused by a punch, then the fight will be decided on the judge’s scorecards at the time of the stoppage. And settled as a Decision Victory.

Fight Special Bets

Method of Victory

You're betting on: which fighter will win and by what method (e.g. A Khan to win by knockout).

The result is settled on the official result announced by the match referee on the conclusion of the fight:

  • KO = Knockout - (Typically this is when a fighter is knocked down and unable to beat the referee's count)
  • TKO = Technical Knockout - (Typically this is when a fighter is knocked down and gets up to beat the count but the referee stops the fight as he deems him not fit to continue or the referee feels the boxer is taking too much punishment and stops the fight)
  • RTD = Opponent Retired - (Typically this is when a boxer returns to his corner at the end of the round but doesn't come out for the next round as his corner or doctor has deemed him unfit to continue)
  • UD = Unanimous Decision - (This is when all three judges agree which fighter won the fight when it goes to points after the full number of scheduled rounds have been completed)
  • SD = Split Decision - (This is when two of the three judges score for the same fighter to win the fight and the third judges scores for the other fighter when it goes to points after the full number of scheduled rounds have been completed)

  • TD = Technical Decision – (Typically this is when has been a fight has to be stopped because of an accidental head butt and a fighter is deemed not able to continue due to an injury. The fight must pass a certain number of rounds set by the competition rules of that fight and then it goes to the judges scorecards and the winner decided on who was winning at that point when the fight was stopped. If a fight doesn't reach the required round when it happens then the fight is a technical draw)
