Heavyweight Scene Hots Up

The British heavyweight scene is healthier than it has been in years and it's not just all about Anthony Joshua, who after his win over Joseph Parker in April 2018 now hollds all the World Heavyweight titles bar the WBC belt that is in the hands of Deontay Wilder. There are several other British heavyweights lining up for world honours.

May 5 saw Tony Bellew repeat his win of last year over David Haye but this time it only took him five rounds to beat the former World Heavyweight champion. He had his opponent down three times before the referee stepped in to stop the fight. The defeat must surely end the career of Haye. As for Bellew, a return to the cruiserweight division looks most likely with either a shot at the winner of the Super Series or enticing Andre Ward out of retirement.

It wasn't all bad news for Haye on May 5. He manages Joe Joyce and in only his fourth professional fight, he beat Lenroy Thomas in two rounds to become Commonwealth Heavyweight champion.

Tyson Fury makes his long awaited comeback in Manchester on June 9 against an opponent yet to be named. Fury has been out of the ring since he beat Wladimir Klitschko to win the World Heavyweight titles in November 2015. Since then he's had mental health problems and put loads of weight on but now he's back at a fighting weight and after a title shot.

Also on the title hunt is Dilian Whyte after his recent win over Lucas Browne. He's the number one challenger for the WBC belt and may have to fight a final eliminator before becoming mandatory challenger. His long term aim is  rematch with Anthony Joshua who beat him in 2015, his only loss as a professional.

Selby to Defend Title in May

Lee Selby defends his IBF World Featherweight title on May 19 as he faces Josh Warrington at Elland Road in Leeds. Selby won the title in 2015 and this will be his fifth defence. His opponent in this all British clash fights for the title in his home city and has won all of his 26 professional fights. He won the WBC International Featherweight title and is used to going 12 rounds and is a former European, British and Commonwealth champion. Selby is 1/4 with Betfair to win this showdown.

Ding ding! What should I use my free boxing bet on?

Boxing betting is bigger than ever before. Betting on the big fight has come a long way from simply taking a punt on who will win the fight and whether there will be a knock out. You can now bet live on fights which gives you in-play options or on the exact round there will be a knock out, whether a fight will be won on points or whether a coach will throw in the towel.

Live boxing betting will also give you an opportunity to use any free boxing bets you have while a fight is going on. This is a great option because a fight may not start the way you anticipated it to do so, which provides you with a chance to make the most of your free bet and not waste it.

Most bookies update their odds in real time which means you could get a cracking price after the first round for something which was odds on before the fight began, maximising your odds when you're betting for free on boxing.

What sort of boxing free bets are there?

Free Boxing bets come in two forms; You can use your welcome bonus across any boxing betting market. This free bet is commonly a small no deposit bonus or it is based around your first deposit.

The second form are those which are unique to a fight. These free bets will only appear when there is a hugely publicised fight about to take place, they also come with strict terms and conditions

You will find all of the best free bets offers listed on and you will get up to date relevant information on any offers which are released by a bookie specifically for a big fight.

How can I claim my boxing free bet?

It couldn't be simpler. You will find the boxing section of your bookie via the sports list that runs down the side of the page. Click through the links until you have the market and the odds you want, selecting the odds or the name of your selection will put it into your bet slip. From here you can use any offer you have to stake your bet and process it.

If you are betting specifically related to a certain fight or boxer, the process may be a little different. You may have a code you have to use at some point when processing your bet or there may be a link on the main boxing page of your bookie which will take you through to the area where you can use your boxing free bet.

Is my boxing free bet ring-fenced?

No! (although I see what you did there, very nice). You can use it on whatever you like, from the outcome of the clash to the number of rounds there will be in total to whether there will be a TKO.
