Betting on boxing has long been associated with the combat sport. From the days long before Don King’s crazy hair until now, betting has been a highlight for many boxing fans looking to win extra funds. Today, betting on fighters is easier than ever with the repeal of PASPA across the states and online sportsbooks taking action in the US.
