Major Boxing Events

Heavy weight bouts used to be regarded as major boxing events. Heavyweights like Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson used to dominate boxing's biggest stages.

Today, even the lighter weight divisions are drawing hordes of boxing fans. Names like Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Sugar Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Marquez are sure draws because of their speed ferocious fighting styles.

There's a boxing event nearly every weekend. But the really major ones happen in Las Vegas, often referred to as the Mecca of boxing. The Yankees Stadium in New York and the Cowboys Stadium in Texas are also popular venues for Major Boxing Events.

Today, there are five recognized world sanctioning bodies for Major Boxing Events. These are:

  • World Boxing Association (WBA)
  • World Boxing Council (WBC)
  • International Boxing Federation (IBF)
  • World Boxing Organization (WBO)
  • World Professional Boxing Federation (WPBF)

Some people only bet on flashy pay-per-view main events like the ones promoted by the likes of Don King, Frank Warren, Bob Arum and Golden Boy. But if you look elsewhere, you will find a rich vein of lower key fights running through the whole year, and it's these that can give you the action you need to make boxing betting pay.
