19 New Scoring System

20 New Scoring System 20

21 Scoring System The new scoring system is based on a 10 point must system that can be used either with a similar electronic scoring system as in the past or a manual mode (paper scoring) When the electronic scoring system (ESS) is available, 5 judges will enter the field of play, their position around the ring will be randomly selected by ping pong balls numbered 1 through 5 When using the manual system, 3 judges will enter the field of play, their position around the ring will be randomly selected by ping pong balls numbered 1 through 3 21

22 Scoring System Just before starting the bout, the ESS will randomly select 3 judges out of the 5 to score the bout, only the scores of these 3 judges selected will be counted When using the manual system, all 3 judges will be live When using the ESS system, the judges will not know if they are live until the end of the bout when their names and scores are announced At the end of each round, when using the ESS the judges will have 15 seconds to enter their score into the ESS scoring pad 22

23 Scoring System The judge will select a winner after each round by hitting the red or blue button on the scoring pad or manually writing it on the score card, all judges will declare their winner, but only the 3 live judges scoring the bout will decide the outcome Each of the judges must determine the winner of the round and award a score of or less, but not lower than 6, every round must have a declared winner no ties Whether it is electronic or manual scoring, the supervisor will apply any warnings associated with the bout and make the proper adjustments manually on score cards With the the electronic scoring, they will inform the ESS tech to apply the warning and it will be noted in the equation 23

24 Scoring System With manual scoring the proper adjustments will be made once the score cards have been collected (the judge’s full concentration must be dedicated to the bout without distractions) If the bout is tied, the scoring pad will light up and blink indicating to the judge they have to select a winner In the event of a tie when using the manual system, when the score card is turned in for the final round, a winner must be declared on the score card 24

25 Scoring System If the computer system goes down prior to the bout starting, the supervisor will give the referee 5 scorecards to pass out to the judges; the supervisor will randomly select through the blind selection process (ping pong balls) 3 of the 5 judges to score the bout If the scoring system goes down after the beginning of the first round, score cards will be handed out to all the judges, but only the 3 live judges scores will determine the winner When scoring manually this will not be an issue 25

26 Manual Scoring System

27 Scoring Criteria A boxer will be given value for the following scoring methodology: Number of quality blows landed on the target area Domination of the bout Competitiveness – not giving up and continues to be competitive in the bout 27

28 Scoring Criteria Technique
Clean, effective scoring blows with good style and form Strategic and Tactical Maneuver himself in the position to score Out maneuver an opponent by ability to cut off the ring Infringement of the Rules set forth by USA Boxing 28

29 Scoring System The following scores are based on the new scoring criteria: 10 – 9 (Close Round) 10 – 8 (Clear Winner) 10 – 7 (Total Dominance) 10 – 6 (Overmatched) The difference between the 10 point must system in AOB versus professional boxing is that a knock down in professional boxing will automatically win you the round In AOB/USAB it’s just part of the equation and evaluation of the total performance of the round 29

30 Compulsory Count Limits
Elite men (19 – 40) after a maximum of three 8 counts in one round the bout will be stopped No limit of the amount of 8 counts in a bout without exceeding 3 in a round Women, youth and juniors will have a maximum of three 8 counts in one round and 4 in the bout 30

31 Boxer Knocked Down In the event a boxer is knocked down at the end of a round, referee must continue the count until the boxer gets up Should the referee count up to 10 the boxer will be deemed to have lost the bout by KO, the bell will not save the boxer 31

45 New Low Blow Rule Low Blow DQ 8 - count Boxer can continue

64 Judges Legal Scoring Blow Knuckle surface Legal scoring area of body
Weight of body or shoulder While not infringing a rule Clearly connected Must have clear vision of punch

65 Judges Tips / Hints(1): Never rely on past performance, reputations or titles earned by a particular athlete. Boxers who swing their blows are liable to connect the target area with the inside of the glove Considerable amount of swinging blows do not connect with the knuckle part of the glove, and are therefore foul blows Judge must not award points whenever a foul has been committed

66 Judges Tips / Hints (2): Infighting may be described as the exchange of several blows when the Boxers are close together The Judges need to consider the combination blows DO NOT give credit for blows delivered if the boxer is infringing the rules

67 Judges Tips (3): DO NOT be influenced by the crowd or by the corners
DO NOT engage in conversations or other distractions during the contest - You need total concentration Give your undivided attention to the competing boxers Be prepared to advise the referee if needed

68 Referees The referee may now use a touch by hand to stop and break the bout or to separate the boxers 68

76 Referees During Bout: Movement & Positioning
Shortening your distance when: Difficult and tough bouts Boxers infighting Ability of one boxer is in doubt Boxers moving towards/fighting on ropes There is a good deal of noise Sounds signalling that 10 seconds are left in the round 76

77 Referees During Bout: Movement & Positioning

79 Referees Fouls Has to decide about following:
Accidental or Intentional foul Type of foul Point deduction Possible disqualification Continue bout or not You don’t always have to call time; do it especially for potentially harmful and unsafe situations

80 Referees Tips (1): Six Characteristics distinguish a great referee:
Good Judgment Knowledge of the Rules Movement and Positioning General Ring Mechanics Identify right time to start an eight count Identify the right time when to declare a TKO or KO

81 Referees Tips (2): Priorities of the duties: Safety of the boxers
Uphold the rules Prevent either boxer from receiving any unnecessary blows Never allow spectator or any outside source to influence decision Be strict without being severe (Boxing is a sport) Never try to intimidate a boxer by ‘finger pointing’ when issuing a caution or warning

82 Referees Tips (3): Be sure to use the ‘whole’ hand as this projects a better image and will maintain respect form the competitors In the ring, be as discreet as the bout allows you Move alertly around the ring: Avoid remaining in one position for long period thus obstructing the view of the Judges and onlookers and indeed not seeing as much of the contest as you should Never give commands, if Boxers have their back to you: Ensure you are in a correct position where the boxers fully understand your instruction, actions, or signals

83 Referees Tips (4): This is not a foul
Distinguish between “infighting” and “clinching A clinch occurs when one or both boxers lead and for a moment their arms become locked together: This is not a foul A foul occurs when a boxer does not make an attempt to disengage from the clinch and continues to hold

84 Referees Tips (5): Do not walk backwards; always move in a forward direction when possible Do not give the command “BREAK” too quickly or too often “BREAK” command should be given when the boxers are slow in getting out of a clinch At the command “BREAK”, insist that “Both” boxers take a full step backwards

85 Referees Tips (6): Avoid saying Stop or Break too often, unless it is because of a head butt After the verbal command of “Break”, it may be necessary to use the hands to touch and separate the Boxers At the end of the round, call “Stop” and wait for the Boxers to retire to their corners: Do not turn your back on the Boxers, but move to the center of the ring, turn and back into the neutral corner

86 Referees Tips (7): The Referees have to maintain control of the bout at all times to prevent cuts, injuries and concussions Acknowledge clashing of the heads Caution or Warn Boxers for Head Butting In case of an accidental clash of heads, allow one or both boxers to recover, then continue the bout without standing 8-count, only Caution the two Boxers

87 Referees Tips (8): Read the rules and the manual thoroughly before each assignment Practice the application of the rules in sparring sessions Attend seminars Keep physically fit and follow a clean lifestyle Be physically and mentally ready to officiate Tone up and stretch before each of your bouts Carefully watch the boxers during each round and in the intervals, keep an eye on the Ringside Doctor, Coaches, Judges, and the Supervisor during the intervals as well
