It wasn't at his "Discretion" the corner have a right to stop the fight, which they did by throwing in the towel. You don't need to get on the ring to prove anything or get in the ring. You throw in the towel.
    In UK corner does not have the right to stop it by the towel (ref is from there BTW) and I posted a link of same thing happening where commentators explained this.

    Well if it's up to the referee's discretion it does matter what he thinks. Not like the corner seems too upset about it in the dressing room post-fight. Like myself and others have said if the corner was really so concerned why didn't they climb the apron and jump in front of Ritson and take the DQ? I know that's what I'd do if I was concerned for my son's safety and they wouldn't stop the fight.

    I'm surprised he did it given the way the fight had been going and you virtually never see the towel declined, but he did not seem to be in mortal peril when it was thrown in, as I recall he'd just got a bit of distance, you don't normally see towels thrown in at that point either. Ritson was objecting when he thought it was over.

    Dumb explanation from him here, and he is a British ref as well. Doesn’t matter what he thinks, once his corner decides to throw the towel in then you stop the fight, when Bayless stopped Wilder he didn’t really want to stop the fight. It was only because Breland threw in the towel and he respected that action.

    They are definitely destroying us. Overrated doe? Who here overrate Ritson or Warrington? Overhype? Yep that’s because they are either with DAZN or signed with Matchroom, and if you are with Eddie Hearn then he would talk you up (Overhype his product).

    That referee should be called in to explain his decision, this is how Hometown boxers get an advantage, and the refs doesn’t even need to be from the same country as the hometown boxer.

    How TF do you throw out the towel when his team threw it in to save him from more punishment, either Ritson had pissed off the ref beforehand or someone has a bet on which round he would be taken out and wanted his money. Disgusting

    Ponce is a class act. He's gone into 3 opponents' backyards, beat them (2 by TKO), then showed tremendous respect and sportsmanship after. He lifted up the Italian guy to the cheering hometown crowd and seemed to show genuine concern for a downed Ritson.

    Easy young man to be a fan of, not to mention he has an all-action fan-friendly style and never stops throwing.
