    In event of the bout going the distance a points decision will be rendered by 3 prior nominated independent judges (as appointed by Sportfight UK) using a ten point system round system. Points will be gained by successful striking, successful throws and sweeps and progression of the fight where a fighter is aggressively seeking the win.

    What does semi pro or pro mean in relation to payment for a bout? Is it a fixed amount, mutually agreed, contracted, cash/cheque, travel expenses?
    "Awww, so you lost darling - but it's the taking part that counts" My Mum... thanks for nothing Mum.

    Default Semi pro

    Semi pro differs from pro

    Pro is 3min rounds
    semi pro is 2 min rounds.

    Pro rules allow knees to head
    semi pro does not

    Depending on both camps agreeing pro rules also have elbows allowed
    semi pro is no elbows.

    Pro offers payment and winners bonus
    semi pro is either ticket deal or set amount of cash with no bonus.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the info. Guess the payment is a mutual agreement/haggle then as no amount mentioned.
    Might be in touch for the later show.
    Cheers.
