Unintentional Fouling

(1) If a bout is stopped because of unintentional fouling, the referee shall determine whether the boxer who has been fouled can continue or not. If the boxer's chances have not been seriously jeopardized as a result of a foul, the referee may order the bout continued after a reasonable interval. Before the bout resumes, the referee shall inform the judges of the determination that the foul was accidental.

(2) If the referee determines that the bout may not continue because of an injury suffered as a result of an accidental foul, the bout must be declared a draw if the foul occurs during the first 3 rounds.

(3) If an accidental foul renders a boxer unable to continue the bout after the third round, the outcome must be determined by scoring the completed rounds and the round during which the referee stops the bout.

(4) If an injury inflicted by an accidental foul later becomes aggravated by fair blows and the referee orders the bout stopped because of the injury, the outcome must be determined by scoring the completed rounds and the rounds during which the referee stops the bout.

Penalizing Contestant

(1) The referee may penalize any contestant who fouls an opponent during a contest, by charging such contestant with the loss of points, whether such foul or fouls are intentional or unintentional. However, the referee shall use discretion in determining the number of points, if any, chargeable against the contestant in each instance, depending upon the severity or harmlessness of the foul and its effect upon the opponent. The referee shall indicate on the official scorecard supplied by the Director the number of points taken away from a contestant in any and all rounds in which the referee may find it necessary to charge a contestant with such loss. The referee shall, at the conclusion of each round, notify the judges of the number of points to be deducted in accordance with this determination.

(2) When necessary to deduct points because of fouls or other infractions of the rules, the referee shall warn the offender and at the end of the round notify both contestants of any penalties which may be assessed against either contestant.

(3) Points deducted for any foul or infraction of the rules shall be deducted in the round in which they occur. No contestant shall be penalized in a later round by virtue of a previous foul or infraction of the rules.

(4) The referee may disqualify a contestant for persistent fouling, in which case the referee must explain the disqualification in the referee's report.

(5) Should a contestant lose a mouthpiece during a round, the bout will be stopped, the mouthpiece washed and replaced and a point deducted from that contestant's score. No contestant shall be allowed to box without mouthpiece.

The Referee Shall Have Power to Stop Contest

(1) The referee shall have the power to stop a contest at any stage if the referee considers it too one-sided, or if either contestant is in such condition that to continue might subject the contestant to serious injury. There shall be no standing eight-count and the bout may not resume.

(2) Should both contestants be in such condition that to continue might subject them to serious injury, the referee shall render a technical draw if the bout is stopped in the first round. A majority rule of the scorecards shall be used if the contest goes beyond the third round.

(3) In cases where a contestant receives a cut eye from a fair blow or an unintentional butt or any other injury which the referee believes may incapacitate the contestant, the referee shall call into the ring the ringside physician for examination of the contestant. Time shall be called during the examination.

Procedure for Failure to Compete

Purses, if applicable, shall be withheld pending investigation and disposition of the funds by the Superintendent. The announcer or referee shall inform the audience that no decision has been rendered.

Failure to Resume Boxing

No contestant shall leave the ring during any one minute rest period between rounds. Should any contestant fail or refuse to resume boxing when the gong sounds denoting the commencement of the next succeeding round, the referee shall award a TKO decision to the opponent as of the round which has been finished, unless the circumstances indicate to the referee the requirement for investigation or punitive action, in which event the referee shall not give a decision and shall refer the matter to the Director in the referee's written report. The purses, if applicable, of the contestants shall be withheld pending investigation and disposition of the funds by the Superintendent.

Method of Counting Over a Boxer Who is Down

(1) When the contestant is knocked down or as the result of a punch is knocked through the ropes the referee shall order the opponent to retire to the farthest neutral corner of the ring, pointing to the corner, and immediately begin the count over the contestant who is down. The referee shall audibly announce the passing of the seconds, accompanying the count with an arm motion, the downward motion indicating the end of each second. No contestant who is knocked down shall be allowed to resume boxing until the referee has finished counting eight. The contestant may take the count either on the floor or standing. The timekeeper, by effective signaling, shall give the referee the correct one-second interval for the count. The referee's count is the official count.

(2) Should the opponent fail to stay in the farthest neutral corner, the referee shall cease counting until the opponent has returned to it, and then go on with the count from the point from which it was interrupted. If the contestant who is down rises before the count of eight, the referee shall step between the contestants. If, after the count of eight, the referee is assured that the contestant who has just regained his feet, is in a fit condition to continue, the referee shall order the bout to continue. Should a contestant who is down arise before the count of ten is reached, and go down immediately without being struck, the referee shall resume the count where it was left off.

(3) If the contestant taking the count is still down when the referee calls the count of ten, the referee shall wave both arms to indicate that the contestant has been knocked out, and shall raise the hand of the opponent as the winner.

(4) If both contestants go down at the same time, counting shall be continued as long as one of them is still down. If both contestants remain down until the count of ten the contest shall be stopped.

(5) If at the end of any round including the last round a contestant is down and the referee is in the course of counting, the gong indicating the end of the round will not be sounded.

(6) The referee may, at his discretion, terminate the count at any time.

230-080-0140

When a Contestant Shall Be Deemed Down

(1) A contestant shall be deemed to be down when any part of the contestant's body except the feet, is on the floor, unless determined otherwise by the referee, or if the contestant is hanging helplessly over the ropes. A referee may count a contestant out either on the ropes or on the floor.

(2) When a contestant is knocked down three times in any one round, the contest will be automatically terminated. The contestant scoring the knockdowns shall be the winner by technical knockout. The referee shall have the authority to stop a contest at any time if a contestant is defenseless.

When Contestant Falls From Ring During Round

(1) A contestant who has been wrestled, pushed, or has fallen through the ropes during a contest may be helped back by anyone and the referee shall allow a reasonable time for the return. When on the ring platform outside the ropes, the contestant shall enter the ring immediately, and the contestant may either resume the contest or take a count which in the latter case shall be started by the referee as soon as the fallen contestant is back in the ring.

(2) Should the contestant stall for time outside the ropes, the referee shall start the count without waiting for the contestant to re-enter the ring.

(3) When one contestant has fallen through the ropes, the other shall retire to the farthest neutral corner and stay there until ordered to continue the contest by the referee.

(4) A contestant who deliberately wrestles or throws an opponent from the ring or who hits when the opponent is partly out of the ring, and prevented by the ropes from assuming a position of defense may be penalized.

Boxers Knocked Out

(1) A boxer who has been knocked out shall be kept in a prone position until the ringside physician orders otherwise. When a boxer is knocked out, no one is to touch the boxer, except the referee or chief second who will remove the mouthpiece, until the ring physician enters the ring and personally attends the fallen boxer, and issues such instructions as the physician sees fit to the boxer's handlers. If a boxer has been knocked out or if a technical knockout decision has been rendered against the boxer by the referee, such boxer shall be placed on the ill and unavailable list for such a period of time as ordered by the ringside physician or any certified Boxing and Wrestling Commission Section physician who may examine the boxer, but such period of time shall not be less than 30 days.

(2) Such a boxer shall not be permitted to engage in any contact boxing during this period without the approval of the Boxing and Wrestling Commission Section physician.

(3) Whenever the referee has stopped a contest because he considers a contestant to be defenseless, such contestant shall be deemed to have been knocked out for purposes of the impositions of medical suspensions.

Scorecard to Referee and Judges

The Superintendent's Representative in charge at all boxing shows shall, before the start of each bout, give the judges the regulation scorecard. The judges shall score each round of the bout on the card and sign it. At the discretion of the Director, individual round scorecards may be used in contests and, if so used, shall be picked up at the end of each round by the referee and delivered to the ringside inspector. At the conclusion of the contest, the Superintendent's Representative may then show the cards to accredited press representatives and immediately thereafter mail or deliver the score cards with the remainder of the required reports to the Director's office.

Method of Judging

(1) Judges shall score all contests and determine the winner through the use of the ten point must system. In this system the winner of each round receives ten points and the opponent receives nine or less. If the round is even, each contestant receives ten points. No fraction of points may be given. A clean knockdown should be scored heavily.

(2) The referee shall advise the judges of a foul as soon as it occurs, and the number of points to be deducted. This should be done at the time the foul occurs. Judges shall clearly write their decision concerning the foul and sign the individual round scorecards.

(3) In case a point has been deducted by the referee, the appropriate score is marked and the penalty then shown -1 or -2 at the side for final tally.

(4) At the end of each round, the referee shall pick up the scorecard from each judge. The referee shall then deliver the cards to the Superintendent's Representative assigned to maintain the master scorecard. The Superintendent's Representative shall then total the score. The majority opinion shall be conclusive, but if there is no majority then the decision shall be a draw. The Superintendent's Representative shall inform the ring announcer of the decision and the ring announcer shall announce the decision.
