The scoring of a boxing match is always controversial and is constantly being picked up by supervisors.
It is always questioned because it is “subjective.” No matter how you count punches, watch actions, or make decisions, it can still be caused by human error, bias, and unfortunately sometimes dishonesty.
Having said that, the basic method and best formula on how to score a professional boxing match, each match should be based on the following criteria.
Here’s what judges are ADDITIONAL to monitor and base their decisions on:
EFFECTIVE EFFECTIVE. This is not simply about going forward and throwing punches. It means that a fighter is forcing action, deciding on speed, determining the distance at which the fight is to be taken, and “hit without being hit.” Too many amateur and professional level referees simply score the boxer who is closing in and creating action. If the fighter is doing it, but they are not effective, it will not count in the result.
GENERAL RING. This is best demonstrated when one fighter, mentally and/or physically, imposes his will on the other. It is also demonstrated by a boxer using his space to their advantage. They usually work well with the ropes, setting the tempo of the fight and dictating the range or distance at which the match is waged. The dominant fighter must always demonstrate a clear understanding of his surroundings, positioning and controlling all areas of the boxing ring.

CLEAN DOLL. This measurement should only be applied to a hit that hits the ground with full force to the head, face, upper body, and core. Punches blocked with hands, shoulders, glances, or missed shots don’t count at all. The operation is not equally effective. Speed and power should also count, as long as each punch hits the ground “flush”. Cleanliness means direct contact.
DEFENSE. When aggression and power are being countered by punches and/or an equally effective defense, this also plays an important role in proper scoring. Only punches that clearly hit the ground count, and fighters who effectively miss their opponents get credit for this valuable skill.
Being an amateur or professional boxing judge comes with great responsibility. They have careers and livelihoods within reach. Judging a boxing match can never be perfect, but there are some rules and guidelines that are standard. They give the best approximation, especially when they are applied without bias, personal feelings, or fraudulent expressions.
