I was watching the 2002 De La Hoya - Vargas fight the other night and I noticed at one point in between rounds, De La Hoya blew his nose twice to get the blood out. The announcers said he broke the cardinal rule as you are never supposed to blow your nose during a fight. Why exactly is this?

Maybe coz snot and booger serve as Anticoagulant? :dunno: (no idea).

Blowing your nose helps you breath though.

Maybe the announcer is very superstatious.

It makes the blood flow even more.

there should have been buds upo the nose with him sniffing the blood and snot back in, when you blow your nose it tends to make it run even more and as prettyboywho says bleed worse and that stops you breathing through your nose which we all know you are supposed to do.

Exactly if anything you should sniff it back in and spit it out.
