If there are at least four rounds that have been completed, the boxer who has the most points from the judges will be declared the winner. On the other hand, if the both boxers have the same amount of points after four rounds, then the match is concluded as a technical draw. But, if four rounds have not been completed, then the match is concluded as a no decision.
No Decision in boxing can also be called no contest. This statistic occurs when a fight is wiped off the record. This occurs in unusual circumstances such as when a boxer isn’t following the rules, police get involved, or there is bad weather.

One can occur when all the judges think it is a draw between the boxers, and another is when all of the judges conclude to different outcomes (win, loss, and draw). Lastly, there is another kind of draw, and is called a majority draw. There are two ways this could happen. For one of them, it can occur when two judges decide there is a draw and one judge decides there is a win. For the other majority draw, two of the judges would decide there is a draw, and one judge would decide it is a loss.
