if any of the seconds throw the towel in the fight is stopped eveen if the ref thinks the fighter can go on the fight is still halted once the towel is thrown in there is no turning back the fight is halted contest is over I guess it depends on the peculiarities of the rules of the sanctioning body. however, as a "RULE" it is the ref, and only the ref who has the mandate to stop the bout. This is still applicable when the corner throws the towel. The towel is tossed in as an indication that the trainer does not think his fighter can continue therefore the ref will usually stop the bout at this point. This is not necessarily always the case however, if the ref believes that the fighter can continue, he can (and i have seen this happen first hand) have the bout continue. It is the ref's decision, just becasue the towel goes in does not mean the fight is over, the ref can either stop the fight or throw the towel back!!

What was the Kuwaiti players complaint that made the referee change his mind and disallow a goal by France in a finals match at the 1982 world cup?

The match was 21 June 1982, featured France vs. Kuwait, and was a first round match of the single elimination phase. The referee was Myroslav Ivanovych Stupar (Ukrainian). The argument consisted of the fact that a whistle was blown in the stands and the defense subsequently stopped playing. The referee, after collecting information from other sources, agreed and disallowed the goal. The decision was not a game changing one due to France winning the match with a 4-1 result. Under today's Laws of the Game and referee instruction, this is a correct decision due to the whistle being an outside agent. (Similar to a dog running onto the field and interfering with play.)

Is unsportsmenlike conduct a indirect kick in soccer?

Unsporting behavior is a cautionable offense (yellow card). If play was stopped solely to deal with the misconduct, then the restart is an indirect free kick for the opposing team. If play was stopped for another reason, and the referee waited to deal with the misconduct, then the restart is dictated by the reason it stopped; throw-in, goal kick, etc.
