Joe Louis boxes Tony Galento

Many years ago, the famous boxer Joe Louis was in a title bout against Tony Galento.  Joe Louis’ trainer told him, “Don’t get up until the count of nine.  Rest!”

But when Tony Galento knocked Louis down, he jumped right back up.  He explained later, “I didn’t want to give Tony nine seconds of rest.”
