    I was amazed that my bookie looks for boxing matches results in boxrec lol. They almost robbed me a big sum parlay which included Adam Lopez win. It was NC in 2nd round. And they calculated it as if it was a draw. Because of some moron in boxrec who think that no contest is the same thing as a draw, I almost lost a lot of money(That was a very careful and safe parlay). I had several very long conversation with their dumb support, and they don't have a slightest clue about boxing and their own rules. They say that there is no winner, so it is a draw lol. After checking they send me a boxrec link as a proof. When I say that it has no credibilty, they started to blabber about their super confidential and secret data source, which they can't give me a link to. But the second support employee was more sane. She told that accidental clash of heads is a technical draw. I made a research and found out that amazingly it is the case in Britain. Warrington and Lara 2 is really a draw lol. Only after I've shown them unified rules they changed loss to a push.

    Why use a bookie? I understand they can front you money but if you lose and don’t pay, things can get ugly quick from what I’ve seen. There’s so many easier ways to gamble now a days.

    Actually they should do it. For boxing it should be tapology of course, cause there is no boxing in sherdog. It is much better than that excuse for a site which is a boxrec.

    Why don't you just use an app?

    Bovada pays them as wins. It comes down to the site really. If your picking a winner and their is no winner I guess that could be considered a draw. It should just be removed from the parlay tbh. I’ve seen it both ways but never as a loss that’s crazy. Check bovada

    Tapology hasn't even been doing boxing very long at all. It's definitely not. Most records are not even close to complete. As for mma, obviously tapology is the best.

    They're official record keepers now so deal with it.

    Okay how is a NC any different than a Draw when it comes to betting? In my experience they’re both just scored as “pushes” and you get your money back.

    Unless they listed that as an option for outcome it's a wash

    If they had option to bet on a draw, then if it is a draw, all bets on winner are lost.

    Bookies sometimes close out wrong(very rare but it can happen).Few months ago I bet Chikadze/Barbosa fight over 2,5 round and they closed it as a win and I got payed,although it ended earlier.

    Not correct.

    If you bet a prop on a fight, (ie: Fighter x wins in round 1, or Fighter x wins by submission), and the fight is a draw, you lose the bet.

    Similarly, if you bet a prop like, "Fight goes 3 round distance", or "Fighter x +3.5pts" and the fight is a draw, you win the bet.

    In both of those situations, an NC would be a push.

    Draws are only pushes where you bet on a fighter "straight up" (ie: not as part of a prop).
