Since the Fitzgerald fight, there had been doubts whether he could box, Cheeseman wanted to prove his doubters wrong, which he has now done, and with this victory, he as now revived his career.

“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.”
