Thread: What would you do?

    Default What would you do?

    Hi Guys

    A quick question for you.....

    You are reffing a fight, both fighters are on the ground. One fighter looks directly at you and spits his gumshield out.

    As a referee I believe you should look for an opportune moment to replace the fighters gumshield but if you suspect it was done deliberately as a way to gain an advantage could that also be classed as timidity?

    Cheers

    Wait for the next opportune moment to replace it and either give a warning or take a point. Same as you would standing.

    this is why i always carry a sachet of black pepper when i referee. although, i ought to confess that it can have a marked effect on a fighters' concentration.

    Foul 26. Timidity, including, without limitation, avoiding contact with an opponent, intentionally or consistently dropping the mouthpiece or faking an injury
    Would constitute a points deduction.

    It is a foul of course, if it is intentional. If it is blatantly intentional and particlualrly at a critical point then it would warrant penalty. Gumshields do come out from time to time, the Referee has to asses if he/she thinks it is deliberate.
