Why is it easy to bet on a box?
There are several advantages to betting on various sports. Boxing is no exception and has its own pros and cons. The latter include a very meager number of battles in a calendar year. After all, it makes sense to create predictions specifically for popular fights. But, often, a boxer fights 2 or 3 times a year, and as we said, many often pick up passable opponents. In most cases, there is a lot of information about fighters for pre-match analysis and for betting.
