MyBookie, a leading online sportsbook in the sports betting industry, threw their weight behind one of the biggest boxing matches of the year this past Saturday on September 28.
Errol Spence and MyBookie Create Knockout Punch
Errol Spence Jr., a Top 5 pound-for-pound boxer, battled top contender Shawn Porter in what many are describing as the Fight of the Year. Spence Jr. and Porter fought in the first ever unification bout at the Staple Center in Los Angeles, CA.
Spence Jr. entered the bout a big favorite. Shawn Porter was supposed to be a stepping stone on Spence’s career path. The 26-0 with 21 knockouts champion had his hands full with the tough, experienced Porter. Halfway through the bout, most ringside observers and those at home had Porter ahead on the scorecards. An eleventh round knockdown changed the scores on the cards, handing Spence Jr. a split-decision victory.
MyBookie was there to lend a helping hand. Spence Jr. versus Porter wasn’t the first time the online sportsbook has sponsored a fighting event. During the spring and summer, MyBookie sponsored the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships.
The promotion presents bare knuckle events between fighters whose first careers were in other sports. At any moment, in any given event, a boxer like Paulie Malignaggi might throw down against a top mixed martial arts fighter like Artem Lobov.
The success MyBookie found backing an organization like Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships led them to sponsoring Errol Spence Jr.’s victorious bout against Shawn Porter. “We got a taste for promoting combat sports events via our relationship with Bare Knuckle,” said MyBookie representative David Strauss. “It became natural for us to look for a combat sports event that we could sponsor that might give us even more exposure. Errol Spence and Shawn Porter provided us that event.
The representative went on to say that MyBookie will look for more events to sponsor in the future.****
