Boxing/UFC Rules

Fixed Odds

Bets on postponed fights will stand for 30 days. 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.

In the event of a fight being declared a No Contest all bets will be void and stakes returned, with the exception of markets where the outcome has already been determined.

To Win the Fight
In the event of a draw all bets will be void and stakes returned, this includes a fight which ends in a Majority Draw. 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).

All bets will have action regardless of changes to number of rounds to be fought.

Fight Outcome 5-Way
Draw or Technical Draw - Draw is scorecard draw. Technical Draw is if the referee 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 referee steps in. Any corner retirement will be considered a technical knockout (TKO), unless the fight is subsequently decided by the judges’ scorecards, or is a declared a No Contest.

Technical Decision - Decision is on scorecard points between the judges. Technical Decision is settled by the judges’ scorecards at any time other than at the end of the scheduled rounds.

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 still have action unless the new number of rounds result in the quote being higher than the total number of rounds to be fought.

For UFC specifically, where a half round is stated then 2 minute 30 seconds of the respective round will define the half to determine under or over. 

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.
