Boxing/UFC Rules

Boxing Pre-match

Bets on postponed fights will stand for 24 hours. If either fighter is replaced with another fighter all bets will be void and stakes returned.
For betting purposes the fight is deemed to have started when the bell is sounded for the beginning of the 1st round.
If either fighter fails to answer the bell for the next round then his opponent will be deemed to have won in the previous round.

To win the fight
Prices are offered for each fighter to win the fight and in the event of a draw, bets on both contestants will be deemed losing on 3-way markets where a draw was offered. 2-Way markets will be void. Bets will be settled on the official result announced in the ring. Subsequent appeals/amendments do not affect settlement (unless the amendment was made due to human error when announcing the result).

Fight outcome 5-way
Draw or technical draw - Draw is scorecard draw. Technical draw is if the ref stops the fight before the start of the 5th round, for any reason other than knockout, technical knockout or disqualification.

KO or TKO - Knockout (KO) is when the boxer does not stand up after a 10 count. Technical knockout (TKO) is the 3 knockdown rule or if the ref steps in.

Decision or technical decision - Decision is on scorecard points between the judges. Technical decision is if the fight can’t continue for any reason after the 5th round other than knockout, technical knockout or disqualification. A points decision is effective on completion of the scheduled number of rounds. Where for any reason a points decision is awarded before the full number of rounds is completed, bets will be settled on the round in which the fight was stopped. All bets will have action regardless of changes to the number of rounds to be fought.

Total rounds
For settlement purposes where a half round is stated then 1 minute 30 seconds of the respective round will define the ‘half’ to determine under or over.
If the number of rounds for a fight is changed after this market has been set then all bets will be void.

Round or group of rounds betting
If for any reason the number of rounds in a fight is changed then bets on round betting already placed will be void and stakes returned.
For betting purposes betting on rounds or groups of rounds is for a fighter to win by KO, TKO or disqualification during that round or group of rounds. In the event of a Technical Decision before the end of the fight all bets will be settled as a win by Decision.

To score a knockdown
For settlement purposes a knockdown is defined as a fighter being KO’d or receiving a mandatory 8 count (anything deemed a slip by the referee will not count).
