I watched "Rocky" with my roommate last night and we had a debate about what happened when Rocky was knocked down in the 14th.

Mickey yells "stay down!" to Rocky when he gets knocked down in the 14th round. Personally, I thought he was telling Rocky to stay down and take the knockout. My roommate thought he was telling Rocky to stay down and rest to take full advantage of the 10 count. I just thought that it was an displayed Rocky's determination to get back up even though he had every excuse to stay down.
Does anybody know what Mickey was really trying to say?
