Hey Oddessa, appreciate you putting these up in this form, so we have a reference to the opening lines.

Kid looks like a good bet to me.

I actually like Kid in this bout. I think it should be alot closer than the line indicates. I bet him earlier today at  another site at a higher + number. I  also took a small shot on Hunt, Kondo  and Herring  at different numbers.

Paulo ceasar silva is the uncoordinated 7 plus foot Brazilian and possible the only Pride heavyweight worse than Thompson.

you probably know him as Giant Silva

I might have to drop some money on some of those(not giant silva though lol)


Hunt looks like a steal to me with Cro Cop at -220. Hunt wants this fight real bad.

I figured Tokoro would be a solid underdog, but +590? I dunno, that looks kind of tempting.

Made a different thread about this awhile ago, but here's the short of it.

When the bell sounds to begin the first round, the bout will be considered official for betting purposes, regardless of the scheduled length or title.

Most sportsbooks  got it right.  The bout never started so regardless of K-1's scorebook ruling, the bout has to be NO ACTION for bettors. (Refunds of all wagers on both sides.) 

I'm suprised at  K-1's thought process in ruling a possible win for Nakao. Under those circumstances,  in the USA or boxing, no sanctioning body would call it a win.  The bout never started. 

Books would likely just have to eat what they paid out. 

 I recall a UFC where something similar happened with a Matt Serra bout. With online sportsbooks its not that big a deal because the money is not directly handed over immediately. As for Brodie- Chi, not many walk up books even offer odds on these type boxing matches. 

 Boxing betting was a dying thing in Vegas, especially the small bouts, untill roughly 2001. You couldnt find a book to offer odds on foreign , non TV stuff, or an ESPN type card. Offshore opened the door for that.  

UFC betting was unheard of in casinos  until a couple years after  offshore's started offering it and letting people bet big on the events. Vegas does not take a big bet on MMA.

Anyways, to answer your question, the walk up sportsbooks would likely just eat the payouts on the wrong side and pay the decision that was reversed that night.  I guess the rule is 'night of the fight' a opposed to announced 'decision in the ring.'  In the event of some mishap, sportsbooks would simply hold up payment of tickets. Kinda like a racetrack would.

The Herring bout was a no  brainer though. Like I mentioned, I question K-1's credibilty when they declare a guy a winner when the bell never rang and the bout never started.  Its pretty lame IMO. Thast why I dont like offering it. Way too shady, but that boxing rule and others like it are in effect to prevent this kind of stuff from happening..........

Has happened before.


M.E.N. Arena, Manchester, Greater Manchester, England

10-18- 2003- In Jin Chi vs Michael Brodie ended in a DRAW after 12 Rounds

~ Referee: Daniel Van de Wiele | 112-114 | 113-113 | 113-113 ~
~ Vacant WBC Featherweight Title ~

The fight was initially a MD12 for Chi, but it was changed to a majority draw half hour later when WBC President Jose Sulaiman determined that there was an error in the scoring of one of the cards.
Title had been declared vacant when reigning champ Erik Morales was named "WBC Champion Emeritus".

MAb by Decision is the correct grade. Fight for your money. MAB  won the fight. Allotta shops graded it wrong.

sounds like bullshit to me
