Rounds
There will be four rounds of two minutes each. Stopping the contest for whatever reason, is not included in the two minutes. A one minute rest period will be given between the rounds. No additional round will be given.

Fouls
The boxers who do not follow the instructions, box in unsportsmanlike manner, or commit fouls, can be cautioned, warned or disqualified at the discretion of the Referee. A Referee can, without interfering in a contest, caution a boxer. If he wants to warn a boxer, he has to stop the contest, and then tell how he had infringed the rules. Once a warning has been administered to the boxer, he cannot be cautioned. A third caution for the same type of foul will invite a warning. If a boxer gets three warnings, he will automatically be disqualified.

Seconds
Every boxer is allowed to be assisted by two seconds. They can mount the apron of the ring. However, only one of them is allowed to enter the ring. The seconds shall not remain on the platform of the ring during the boxing. They should remove all their things from the platform before the duel. While in the corner, they shall be in possession of a towel and sponge for the boxer. The seconds are not allowed to offer any advice, assistance or encouragement to their boxer. If a second violates the rules, he may be warned or disqualified. A boxer may also be cautioned, warned or disqualified by the Referee for offences committed by his seconds.

Timekeeper
Timekeepers have been appointed to regulate the number and duration of the rounds as well as the intervals between rounds.
