vocabulary Pierre Boist: "It takes our whole lives to learn how to use it."

– the immediate deterioration of the boxer, who is on his feet, after a precise blow to the chin area. The groggy condition is caused by concussion of the ear labyrinth, and usually passes fairly quickly, but the athlete loses his fighting ability for a short period of time. In such a case, the referee stops the fight on the command "stop!" and counts down to eight. If the boxer, who is in the state of groggy after the number 8 has not come up to the fight stand with the restored fighting ability, the referee keeps counting up to 10, after that the boxer will be deemed to have been knocked out.
