Penalizing a Competitor

(1) The referee may penalize any competitor who fouls an opponent during a bout, by deducting points from the fouling competitors score, whether such foul or fouls are intentional or unintentional. However, the referee shall use discretion in determining the number of points, if any, chargeable against the competitor in each instance, depending upon the severity or harmlessness of the foul and its effect upon the opponent. The referee shall indicate on the official scorecard supplied by the authorized representative of the superintendent, the number of points taken away from a competitor in any and all rounds in which the referee may find it necessary to charge a competitor with such loss. The referee shall, at the conclusion of each round, notify the judges of the number of points to be deducted in accordance with this determination.
(2) When necessary to deduct points because of fouls or other infractions of the rules, the referee may warn the offender and at the end of the round notify both competitors of any penalties which may be assessed against either competitor.
(3) Points deducted for any foul or infraction of the rules shall be deducted in the round in which they occur. No competitor shall be penalized in a later round by virtue of a previous foul or infraction of the rules.
(4) The referee may disqualify a competitor for persistent fouling, in which case the referee must explain the disqualification to an authorized representative of the superintendent.
(5) Mouthpiece Replacement:
(a) Should a competitor lose a mouthpiece during a round, the bout will be stopped, the mouthpiece may be washed and replaced. No competitor shall be allowed to continue without a mouthpiece.
(b) A competitor may be penalized by deduction of a point from their score for losing their mouthpiece. A deduction of points is at the discretion of the referee.
