What separates a punch in the head from one in the neck?  Unlike in fencing where one has to hit a target with a clearly defined perimeter so that it registers electronically.  There are several sports that seem to fall between completely objectively scored contests (a ball either goes through a hoop or it does not, etc.) and contests with essentially subjective scoring.  It does not really matter, though, because it is popularity that seems to govern whether or not an event is included in the Olympic program.  Besides, the Olympics are overrated.
