That's wrong, as boxing is based on a points scheme unless someone gets a knockout, and the points are displayed after every round.

You sure? When I watch it on TV the points are never displayed until the end of the match when the judges are totaling up there points?

Jup, never seen any sort of scoreboard or score indicator near or in or above the ring
Computer games don't affect kids. I mean, if Pac-Man had affected us as kids, we would all be running around darkened rooms, munching magic pills, and listening to repetitive electronic music.

Ah well, must either be an English thing or it may just be my imagination, but i'm sure Sky Sports always indicate the amount of points gained after every round.

Also, after each round, as the contestants go to their corner, their crew always tell them how the round has gone, who did better in the round, what they need to do to win etc.

Yeah, sky sports will always do an estimate at the end of each round. It's not the judges score, but someone scores the rounds to give you an indication of who's winning.
