If more online sports books had all those detailed bet options I'd be for it. But for consistency, since it's highly unlikely we'll find such detailed odds available for the majority of fights, it seems more prudent to me to keep it simple with the four-option system (which is always available, and ultimately includes any picks someone may make; ie rather than bet "Pavlik by KO in the tenth" they can split up their cash, some on Pavlik to win and some on the under 11.5).
Ok, well generally offer a wide range of prices. At least 2-3 bookmakers in the boxing section offer the 'Method of Victory' option on decent sized fights

If its a domestic fight im more than happy going with the 4-5 options (Fight A, Fighter B, Draw?, Under and Over) but for big fights id like to see us use Oddschecker because the options are great.

Like the more varity, for big fights, the more interesting it will be to see where the cash is going. On the smaller fights, maybe not so much
