• When a fighter looks to be in trouble (i.e. on the verge of being seriously injured), the referee stops the fight and counts to 8 so that he may determine if the boxer is able to continue. Sometimes fighters can be knocked down and get up but yet be "out on their feet."
  • The referee can give a fighter the standing 8 count to see if the fighter is ok to continue to fight. If not ok, he can stop the fight.
