How The Fight Will Be Won

The basic rules on how to win a boxing bout are relatively easy to understand. There are three ways that either Mayweather or McGregor will win the fight by. The first being by knockout (KO) or technical knockout (TKO) This is where one of the fighters knocks the other to the floor, and they are either knocked out cold, or they can’t get to their feet by the referee's count of ten. Or TKO when the referee stops the fight as in his opinion one of the fighters is taking too much punishment and not fighting back, TKO can also be if one of the corners throws in the towel and retires their fighter.

The next is the judges score cards, if both fighters are still standing at the end of the designated rounds (12 in title fights) then the fight will be decided by the three scoring judges. The judges will score each round using the 10-9 points system, if a fighter gets knocked down in a round, then they will lose a point with the judges, so that round would be 10-8 or 10-7 if they were knocked down twice and so on. The fighter that scores the best with the judges will then be declared the winner. From the score cards, you will either have a unanimous decision, where all three judges score the fight to the same fighter. A majority decision, where two of the judges score it to one fight and the other scores it a draw. A split decision, where two judges score it to one fighter and the other scores it to the other fighter. A draw, this can happen if all three judges score the fight a draw by giving each fighter the same score. A majority draw, this happens if two of the judges both have scored the fight to different fighters and the third judge scores it a draw, or if two of the judges score it a draw and the third judges scored it differently. Over the years we have seen some questionable score cards, one of the reasons that fighters will try and get the job done before it goes that far. As you are never sure what judges are looking for in a fight, all judges and fans like different things in fights.
