A knockout occurs when an boxer is knocked down by his opponent, falls through the ropes and cannot get back into the ring and on his feet by the count of 20, or otherwise is down, and the referee reaches the count of ten before the boxer is back on his feet in the ring. A knockout ends the bout, resulting in a KO win for the boxer's opponent. This is to be distinquished from a technical knockout (although a TKO is usually recorded as a generic "knockout" in a boxer's fight record).
