I wonder where the name comes from for his work comes from. The connotation that I make is one where a boxing champion who may be a little past his prime, is engaged in a tough fight with a younger hungry fighter. Late in the fight, the 10th or 11th round, the challenger scores a knockdown in a particularly grueling round and the champ's corner bids him to stay down. They don't want him to take anymore punishment and the fight is pretty much lost.

... or could just be me and my flights of fancy taking off..! Everything may be a balloon but not a boxing metaphor !
