2202.1100 INJURIES SUSTAINED DURING COMPETITION.

A.

If an injury sustained during competition as a result of a legal maneuver is severe enough to terminate a contest, the injured combatant loses by technical knockout.

B.

If an injury sustained during competition as a result of an intentional foul is severe enough to terminate a contest, the combatant causing the injury loses by disqualification.

C.

If any injury is sustained during competition as a result of an intentional foul and the contest is allowed to continue, the referee shall notify the scorekeeper to automatically deduct two points from the combatant who committed the foul.

D.

If an injury sustained during competition as a result of an intentional foul causes the injured combatant to be unable to continue at a subsequent point in the contest, the injured combatant shall win by technical decision, if the combatant is ahead on the scorecards. If the injured combatant is even or behind on the scorecards at the time of stoppage, the outcome of the contest shall be declared a technical draw.

E.

If a combatant is injured while attempting to foul the combatant's opponent, the referee shall not take any action in the combatant's favor, and the injury shall be treated in the same manner as an injury produced by a fair blow.

F.

If an injury sustained during competition as a result of an accidental foul is severe enough for the referee to stop the contest immediately, the contest shall result in a no contest if stopped before two rounds have been completed in a three-round contest or if stopped before three rounds have been completed in a five-round contest.

G.

If an injury sustained during competition as a result of an accidental foul is severe enough for the referee to stop the contest immediately, the contest shall result in a technical decision awarded to the combatant who is ahead on the scorecards at the time the contest is stopped only when the contest is stopped after two rounds of a three-round contest, or three rounds of a five-round contest have been completed.

H.

There will be no scoring of an incomplete round. However, if the referee penalizes either combatant, then the appropriate points shall be deducted when the scorekeeper calculates the final score.
