These examples are pushing the scoring system to the limit!
Sorry. Can't help myself.

I's good exercise.

I would be remiss for not pointing out that if a boxer is dominating a round as you say AND scores a late knockdown... the ref would probably be stopping the fight before the judges get a chance to score the round. That's why you'll probably never see such a scenario unfold. Still, I'll bite on the scoring. I would probably still just go with 10-8 in either situation. If I'm giving 10-7, we've got a terrible ref who should never work a pro fight again.
Probably. But for arguments sake, in a test-a-theory sort of way, or even better, how about if................... oh nevermind.
