Rule 2. Referee will count to 10 for knockouts. Referee will immediately restart the fight if he does not judge a fall as a knockdown. If the fighter is unsteady while standing, the referee has the discretion to regard that as a knockdown.
Rule 3. If there are 3 knockdowns in a round, the referee will rule the fight as finished via “count limit.”
Rule 4. If there are 4 knockdowns in a fight, the referee will rule the fight as finished via “count limit.”
