One of the most fascinating aspects of sports gambling is the range of sports a sports gambling enthusiast will follow. The two big sports gambling activities in Ireland are of course horse racing and football, but sports gambling fans are always ready take a punt on another sport particularly I it is a special event. Boxing is a prime example of this fascination for a big event. There are of course some sports gambling fans who enjoy gambling on boxing on a regular basis, but whenever a big fight comes along the number of people gambling on boxing swells dramatically. It will be interesting to see what happens to boxing gambling revenues next month when one of the most long awaited fights ever is due to take place. For those sports gambling fans reading this article who are not big boxing fans we are referring to the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jnr. and Manny Pacquiao which is due to take place on May 2nd. Mayweather has been undefeated throughout his near twenty year professional boxing career, and with a record of 47-0 is rapidly approaching the all-time record of 49-0 held by the boxing legend Rocky Marciano. There are however many serious boxing gambling fans who think that this fight will bring that record to a halt. His opponent Manny Pacquiao is also a modern day legend and is the only boxer ever to have won world championship titles at eight different divisions. This is a fight made for sports gambling fans who enjoy gambling on boxing, but it is also likely to attract many sports gambling enthusiasts who would not normally follow the sport. Not only are these two boxers among the best we have seen over the past twenty years, but also their boxing styles couldn’t be more different so boxing gambling fans need to decide whether the all action fast punching Pacquiao can disturb the ultimate skilful defensive qualities of Mayweather. The whole boxing world will be looking forward to this one.
