A Guide to Betting on Women’s Boxing
January 18, 2018
Women’s boxing has come
along way in the last few years. The likes of Christina Hammer,
Katie Taylor, Claressa Shields and Cecilia Braekhus have raised
the profile of the sport around the world. As a consequence,
plenty of fans are betting on women’s boxing.
However, there is more
to bet on than just the winner of the fight and fans can use
their knowledge of the fighters to find the best betting market.
This piece will break down the betting markets for the Claressa
Shields v Tori Nelson bout for the WBC ,IBF Super Middleweight
WBAN Belt held on 12th January 2018.
This is the most basic
betting market in boxing and, as you might expect, it is for the
final result regardless of the how victory is achieved. Clearly,
the bookmakers feel that
Shields is an overwhelming favourite to retain her titles.
There would be not much profit in backing her. If you fancy
Nelson to cause an upset, however, you will earn over fifty
times your outlay.
KO, TKO or Disqualification
Decision or Technical
Now that the markets are more
specific, the odds have become more generous for a Shields
victory. She has won two of her four professional fights by KO,
so if you think that will happen you will increase your outlay
by 10%. Nelson has only won two out of 17 victories by KO, so
the odds are quite high for her to win by that method.
Again, the markets are now more
specific allowing the odds to increase. Backing Shields to win
in the 5th Round, like she did against Nikki Adler,
would provide a decent profit. You may also notice that the odds
lengthen for Shields as the rounds progress. This is because the
bookmakers will reason that there is more chance for Nelson to
‘hang on’ until the fight is over.
No: 1/20, Yes: 4/9
Finally, a simple betting market
that does not factor in the bout winner. In this case, it is
arguably a matter of betting that Nelson can hang on against
Shields for the full 10 rounds. If you think the answer is yes,
you could land profits of nearly 50% - regardless of who wins.

The above highlights the basic ways
to bet on a women’s boxing match. For bigger fights, such as the
potential one between Hammer v Shields, you would likely see
special betting markets added by the bookmakers.
