7. 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.

8. a. Rounds in boxing are each 3 minutes long; a half-round is defined as 1 minute and 30 seconds (90 seconds). For Total Round wagers, if a half mark is stated, then the next round will define the 'half' mark. For example, for Over 3.5 rounds to be the winner, the fight must go over 1 minute 30 seconds of round 4.
b. Rounds in MMA are each 5 minutes long; a half-round is defined as two minutes and thirty seconds (150 seconds). For Total Round wagers, if a half mark is stated, then the next round will define the 'half' mark. For example, for Over 3.5 rounds to be the winner, the fight must go over 2 minute 30 seconds of round 4.
c. The official stopping of a round before the sounding of the bell does not constitute a full round.
d. A full round is considered for betting purposes only when the bell sounds, signifying the end of that round.
e. In round distance wagering, if a fighter fails to answer the bell for the start of any round, the fight officially ended in the last round fought.
f. In total wagering, if a fighter does not answer the bell to start a round where the fight has gone the exact distance listed on the total, the UNDER is the winner.

9. For betting purposes, the disqualification of a boxer during a match will be counted as a knockout by his opponent.

c. If the fight ends in a 12 round draw or any draw, all proposition wagers other than the draw lose (these include, but are not limited to, props such as by Decision, by KO, by TKO, by DQ).
