"To Throw In The Towel"

To throw in the towel - The reference is to the towels or sponges used to cleanse fighter's faces in prize fights. One contestant's manager would throw in the towel to signal that his fighter had had enough and would no longer need the towel to wipe his face. He was ready to quit the fight. It means to surrender, to quit.
