The 10-point must system is a technique of scoring a fighting match .Under the system, the jury must give the champion of a round 10 points, and the loser 9 points. 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 round's 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." If a fighter loses points by placing fouls this may affect in awarding an equivalent number of points to each fighter, even with an odd number of rounds and an odd number of jury, draws is probable. Each foul generally costs one point, and is dogged by the referee.
