A bang down generally results in a score of eight (8) for the boxer who was banged down, and ten (10) for his or her challenger (provided, of course, the banged-down boxer gets up earlier than the finish of the count ). An umpire may occasionally reward a 10 - 8 score if the rounds champion is visibly dominating the other fighter. If the fight progress through all programmed rounds, the amount of the scores for each round are tallied for each umpire to decide the champion of the match.

If not capable to continue the fight previous to that number of rounds has been fought, the fight is lined a "no contest."

Each foul generally costs one point, and is dogged by the referee.
