§ 351. When Boxer Falls or Is Knocked from Ring During Round.
A contestant who has been wrestled, pushed, or has fallen through the ropes during a contest may be helped back by anyone and the referee shall allow a reasonable time for the return. When on the ring platform outside the ropes, the contestant shall enter the ring immediately.
Should the contestant stall for time outside the ropes, the referee shall start the count without waiting for him to re-enter the ring.
When one boxer has fallen through the ropes, the other boxer shall retire to a designated corner and stay there until ordered to continue the contest by the referee. When a boxer is knocked outside of the ropes by a legal punch, the referee shall begin the count. If at the count of eight the boxer is no longer down, he or she shall be allowed reasonable time to reenter the ring.
A contestant who deliberately wrestles or throws an opponent from the ring, or who hits him when he is partly out of the ring, and prevented by the ropes from assuming a position of defense may be penalized.
