§ 345. The Referee Shall Have Power to Stop Contest.
The referee shall have the power to stop a contest at any stage if he or she considers it too one-sided, or if either contestant is in such condition that to continue might subject him or her to serious injury, and in either case to render a decision in the manner prescribed by Rule 339.
Regardless of any examination by the ringside physician, if a boxer unequivocally manifests an intent to stop fighting, the referee shall immediately stop the contest. If the referee is unclear whether the boxer intends to stop fighting, then the referee shall ask the boxer if the boxer wishes to stop fighting and if the response is affirmative, then the referee shall immediately stop the contest.
