Technical draw

Technical draws occur when a fighter is unable to continue from an accidental injury (usually cuts), or foul. Draws occur when the bout goes to the scorecards, and the official decision of the officials is a draw. They also occur when a bout has not completed a certain number of rounds (usually four), thereby not making it an "official fight." Most states have eliminated the technical draw decision for bouts that don't go a required distance, and have replaced it with a no contest.
