Settle an argument: How long can a fighter not counter before a technical KO called

In boxing, how long can a fighter NOT counter his opponent before the ref calls a TKO. Essentially turtleing on the ropes, etc. Just covering up as the opponent peppers him constantly with shots.

One guy said 20 seconds I thought more like 60, someone else said there is no limit.

Is this an interpretation call or is there a certain number of seconds of non-counter that can cause this to be called?

Fighters must "intelligently defend themselves", or something similar to that.

It seems to be pretty much up to the official. There might be an actual rule about it, I dont know, but sometimes its quick and sometimes it lasts quite awhile.
