'RSC is a British term meaning "Referee stops the contest.” It is used to save a boxer from a knockout when he is being outclassed, cannot protect himself, or is otherwise unfit to continue the bout. This results in a technical knockout win for the boxer’s opponent.

This is to be distinguished from RSCH ("referee stops contest because of head blows").

See also, RTD.
