§ 339. Unintentional Fouling.
(a) When a bout is interrupted due to an injury caused by an unintentional foul, the referee in consultation with the ringside physician shall determine whether the boxer who has been fouled can continue or not. If the referee sees, or if after consultation with the judges, determines that a boxer is unintentionally fouled and if the boxer's chance of winning has not been seriously jeopardized as a result of a foul, the referee may order the bout continued after a reasonable interval.
(b) If the referee and/or the ringside physician determine that the bout may not continue because of an injury suffered as the result of an unintentional foul or because of an injury inflicted by an unintentional foul which later becomes aggravated by fair blows, the bout must be declared a draw if the bout is stopped before the bell rings to begin the fourth round. After the bell rings to begin the fourth round, the outcome shall be determined by scoring the completed rounds and the round during which the referee or ringside physician stopped the bout.
(c) When an unintentional foul causes the bout to be interrupted for the purpose of allowing the injured boxer time to recover, the referee shall penalize the boxer guilty of the foul one or more points.
