A boxing ring has four corners, two are owned by the fighters, these are normally the blue & red corners. The other two corners are the Neutral Corners and are normally white.

The purpose of the neutral corners is to provide a space that a boxer can be sent to by the referee, for example whilst counting down a felled opponent.

 The referee may also send a fighter to a neutral corner having broken up the fight in order to give the other boxer a moment to recover. In either case the boxer sent to the neutral corner cannot receive any support or input from their own corner whilst there.

In white collar boxing the neutral corner can feel a little like a 'naughty corner' as seen in these pics of my first fight with Conrad. 

I'm not sure what Conrad was being told off for in the photo above, but clearly Coach Cris was not amused.

Equally I can't remember what Coach was saying to me in the neutral corner in this pic. 🤣
