Boxing Betting Angles

When handicapping a fight there are a few key factors you should focus on.

Fighter's records can often be misleading, instead you should focus on the quality of opposition the fighter has beaten.

Thorough Boxing stats are available at Box Rec.

Look at the combined record of each fighter's last 5 opponents, this is a good indication of the class of fighter each fighter has been fighting of late.

Look at each fighter's recent form, last 5 fights, be careful about betting on a fighter coming into the fight off a loss, especially a KO loss, it usually takes a fighter a couple of fights to get his confidence back after a KO loss, in particular if it was their first career loss via KO or unanimous decision, don't bet on these fighters, if they lost a contentious close decision fight it doesn't mean too much and can be considered similar to a win because they weren't outclassed.

Example:

Bernard Hopkins vs Joe Calzaghe

Last 5 fights record prior to this fight

Hopkins: 3-2 / Calzaghe: 5-0

Record and win % of each fighters last 5 opponents prior to this fight

Hopkins: 162-7-1 = 95.29% / Calzaghe: 130-5-2 = 94.89%

The result of this fight was Calzaghe win via Split Decision

Both fighters matched up closely, the class of their recent opponents was in the same range, the edge went to Calzaghe due to his 5-0 record over similar opposition compared to Hopkins and his 3-2 record.
