“You can’t imagine. I see fighters lose who don’t care. I cared, I cried my eyes out, I stormed out of the ring. I’m a winner, I gave my heart to this sport and I felt that I deserved some luck last year but I never got it.

“I lot of people doubted me, thought I would tire. When it got tough, I had a fight with Sam. It was morale – I haven’t won for nearly two years – and you need confidence.

An emotional Ted Cheeseman added: “I was confident going into that ring. There was no pressure with no crowd.

“I made mistakes but I boxed really well. I could have thought: ‘It isn’t going my way’.

“But I gave it my all.

“If I lost tonight I would have retired.

“I could cry my eyes out with happiness.”
