“Since first launching the offer for the 2014 football World Cup, instant betting has become one of our most popular markets, especially across football and tennis where we see high VIP engagement and we are now seeing that interest spread to other sports, such as boxing,” Simon Noy, Kambi Head of In-Play, said.

Kambi first offered instant betting in boxing back in 2015 for Mayweather’s fight versus Manny Pacquiao, and has since extended the offer to include ‘Fight to end in next minute’.
