Default Scoring a KD

Ok--I am in my mid 40's and I have been watching boxing since I was a teenager. But there is always a question about scoring that has bothered me.

Lets say Smith in round 1 score a KD and was winning the round. Most judges rightfully will score that round 10-8. No brainer.

BUT--I notice when I am watching a fight on HBO, when they ask their "expert judge" every other round how he has scored the fight so far, he'll say something like, "Ok--Smith won the first round and he got the extra point for the KD so I have it right now 10-8."

Has anyone else noticed this? It's not really "getting an extra point". It's more the other guy LOSES an extra point for getting dropped.

Maybe it's just the wording that bothers me.

Its just the wording that is off, they mean he won that round by an extra point.

Thanks--I thought that's all it was--just the wording. I didn't know if there was some specific scoring rule that I wasn't aware of.

But to the wording thing--I wonder then why they just don't say it as it actually IS..."I scored the round 10-8 for the KD..so the other guy loses a point for being dropped"

My biggest issue is that there is no differentiation between a dominant round and a coin toss round. It is stupid. Judges almost never use a 10-10 round and score it 10-9... and on the flip side RARELY do judges score a 10-8 round where there was no knockdown. So again you get a 10-9 round. Makes no damn sense.
