THE 10 POINT MUST SYSTEM

The 10-point must system outlines that the winner of the round receive 10-points, and that the loser "begins" with 9-points on the scorecard.

Usually, an extra point is taken away from a boxer who is knocked down.  If both boxers are knocked down during the round, then the knockdowns would cancel each other out. On the other hand, additional points can be deducted from a boxer who is knocked down multiple times during a round.

Of course, the referee can deduct points for fouls (i.e., holding, hitting illegally, not following instructions, etc.) from either boxer. If the points are deducted from a boxer who otherwise would have won the round by a score of 10-9, then the score becomes 9-9.  Points deducted by the referee for infractions must be reflected in the final scoring.  If the point is taken from the boxer who would have lost the round, then the round goes from 10-9 to 10-8.

There is no rule that mandates that a judge score a knockdown as an automatic one-point deduction. It is left to the judge's discretion on how they score each round. Theoretically, a judge could score a round at 10-9, 10-8 or if in the judge's judgment it was warranted due to the complete dominance of one fighter, a 10-7 round.

Each judge must make a decision about the knockdown and its severity.  For instance, it is up to each judge to evaluate what announcers refer to as "flash" knockdowns and to determine whether a scoring adjustment should be reflected.  In the same way, a scoring modification could be considered when a fighter dominates a round but doesn't put his opponent on the canvas.  In both of these cases, it is up to the individual judge to make a decision.

Right or wrong, scoring a professional boxing match is largely a subjective exercise.  Although guidelines exist for scoring a fight, there is not always a black-and-white interpretation of what happens inside the ring.  Though there have been efforts to quantify the criteria for scoring, it ultimately remains the judgment of the individual official.
