The concept reminds me of the recent Kim Couture incident. I would like to think I would keep fighting (though I am far from being ready to get in a ring/cage at the moment). I would also do everything in my power to ensure the ref never worked in combat sports again, assuming it was a preventable death. Naturally freak accidents do happen.

Its hard to say how one would react personally..I know I would feel terrible for a time. But hanging up the gloves might be doing more disrespect to your late opponent than continuing to fight would.
I know if I was to get killed in a professional fight, I wouldn't want the guy who did it to quit and mope around for the rest of his life.
Aftermath of Kim's death
Mancini went through a period of reflection, as he blamed himself for Kim's death. After friends helped him by telling him that it was just an accident, Mancini went on with his career, though still haunted by Kim's death. His promoter, Bob Arum, said Mancini "was never the same" after Kim's death. Two years later, Mancini lost his title to Livingstone Bramble.
Four weeks after the fatal fight, the Mike Weaver vs Michael Dokes fight at the same Caesars Palace venue ended with a technical knockout declared 63 seconds into the fight. Referee Joey Curtis admitted to stopping the fight early under orders of the Nevada State Athletic Commission to be aware of a fighter's health in light of the Mancini-Kim fight, and a rematch was ordered.
Kim's mother flew from Korea to Las Vegas to be with her son before the life support equipment was turned off. Three months later, she took her own life by drinking a bottle of pesticide. The bout's referee, Richard Green, committed suicide July 1, 1983.
Kim left behind a fiancée, Lee Young-Mee, who was pregnant at the time with their son, Kim Chi-Wan, who was born in July 1983.[1
As for me- I'll focus on being able to beat people first, then later I'll worry about killing them.
Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

I would leave through the locker room window, get in a cab with a good looking spanish woman and smoke a cigarette. When she tells me my opponent died I'd say, "sorry 'bout that floyd" I'd have her take me to my hotel and pay her to tell anyone who asks that I was 3 well dressed slightly toasted mexicans. Then I'd say bonswa Esmirelda.

One of the best movies ever.
