KO.
I disagree, most refs stop the count when the fighter gets back up. It takes a good couple of seconds to look at the eyes, hold the gloves, ask "are you ready" or "are you ok", then ask the fighter to walk to him. If refs did what you suggested then many fighters should have been counted out after taking the mandatory 8 count because it took more than 10 seconds to assess the fighter.
