§ 518. 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 fighter who has been fouled can continue or not. If the referee sees, or if after consultation with the judges, determines that a fighter is unintentionally fouled and if the fighter'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, not to exceed 5 minutes.
(b) If the referee and/or the ringside physician determines 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 shall be declared a draw, if according to the score cards, the bout was determined to be a draw at the time the foul occurred. If, according to the score cards, the fighter committing the foul was winning prior to the foul, the bout shall be declared a technical draw. If, according to the score cards, the fighter being fouled was winning prior to the foul, then that fighter shall be declared the winner.
(c) When an unintentional foul causes the bout to be interrupted for the purpose of allowing the injured fighter time to recover, the referee shall penalize the fighter guilty of the foul one or more points.
