    This is what is known as a "majority" decision brother Rich. Two judges ruled the fight a draw, so their cards over ruled the one card which declared a winner. The exact same thing happened in the Hasim Rahman-James Toney fight this weekend. A draw would also happen if one judge declared one fighter a winner, while a second judge declared a different fighter a winner, and the third judge declared a draw. The purpose of having three judges is that at least two need to see a fight the same way (or similar) in order for a decision to be declared.

    Thank you Pan that answers my question
    i never knew that i thought they add up the score by punchies landed
    combonation and jabs that land

    I'll have it all down pack soon , i'm getting into boxing more and more

    Is there a knock down rule in place or is it that they call a fight if the fighter
    seem wobbled ??

    I ask that i saw once a fighter knock to the canvas four times but he got up
    the third time he seem wobbled but kept fighting.

    Actually brother Rich scoring a fight is incredibly subjective. Different judges look for different things. Most judges typically will award a fight to which ever boxer lands more punches, so that is a good general rule to go by. However some judges like fighters who are aggressive, even if they are not accurate with their punches. Other judges like fighters who have good defense, even if they do not throw as many punches as their opponent. The subjectiveness of judging is why many casual fans don't understand most boxing decisions.

    As far as knock down rules go, in the past there was a "three knock down rule". This rule called for a fight to be automatically stopped if a fighter went down three times in one round. This rule is no longer in play, although many referees will still call a fight if a boxer goes down three times in one round. Instead of the number of knockdowns most judges look for how badly a fighter is hurt as well as their history. There are some boxers who have a history of getting knocked down and coming back to win. Felix Trinidad, Light Weight Champion Diego Corrales, and Undisputed Cruiserweight Champion O'neil Bell all have this reputation. Not every fighter who gets knocked down is seriously hurt, and referees know this. This is why they ask a boxer a series of questions (watch their body reactions) every time they get up from a knock down. If the reaction of a fighter is okay, the ref will let the fight go on, no matter how many times they are knocked down. With this in mind though, realize that a ref can stop a fight even if a boxer never goes down, if he thinks a fighter is taking too much fighters. There have been boxers who have been killed as a result of the damage they took in a ring (one died this past weekend), yet they never went down in the fight.

    I honestly don't believe there have been more ring deaths than normal, it is just that the one's happening lately have all been Televised. Also you are right, death and major injury is an inherant risk of the sport.
