A boxer earns points from officials, generally ringside judges, during a bout through successful punches to his opponent's head and body, knockdowns, defense, and the like. A boxer can also lose points by commiting a foul. A boxer who accumulates more points at the bout's conclusion wins the decision or a win on points--unless the bouts ends by knockout, technical knockout, or no contest.
