The maximum amount that can be wagered on a single boxing match varies depending on the sportsbook. Online sportsbooks Bovada, Betonline, Sportsbook.ag and 5 Dimes all have a betting limit of $2500 – $5000 range for a single wager on a major fight. This maximum betting limit is not written in stone however with online sportsbooks able to increase this amount at their own peril. A simple e-mail to the customer service department of these betting sites can be enough in some instances to increase the max bet.
Bets $100,000+ and up have been accepted by using this method to place a custom wager. Smaller fights that have boxing odds posted that are usually non-title bouts have much smaller wagering limits. Boxing matches that are on the undercard of major bout generally are restricted to a bet of $250- $500 online.
Smaller bouts with relatively unknown or unproven contestants are harder to predict than major fighters that are more proven. Requests can be made to place a larger bet on these fights but rarely are granted by the online sportsbooks. When it comes to big bets in boxing Las Vegas remains the king. Vegas has been known to take seven figure bets on big fights with regularity.
Behind Vegas are the new sportsbooks New Jersey. The Jersey sportsbooks have been around for less than a year and have not yet received a seven figure wager on a prizefight but are willing to accommodate big players willing to lay down big money.
