Falling out of the ring on purpose
It is my understanding that based on the rules, if you get knocked out the ring you have 20 seconds to come back in. So if you are in a fight being rocked and need an extra 10 seconds, is it a bad idea to take a punch near the ropes and purposely fall out the ring?
"9. A boxer shall receive a twenty (20) second count if the boxer is knocked out of the ring and onto the floor. The boxer is to be unassisted by spectators or his/her seconds. If assisted by anyone, the boxer may lose points or be disqualified with such a decision being within the sole discretion of the referee."
If a fighter falls outside the ring and ring apron, he will have 20
seconds to come back to the ring without assistance, unless the
referee orders it."
