“I am overwhelmed with the support. I can’t believe my 94,000 countrymen came here tonight to see my performance. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to everyone who bought a ticket here tonight or stayed up late to watch it on TV. I am one of the best heavyweights of all time.

But I was offered to fight at Wembley at home, and I think I deserved itI owed it to the fans, I owed it to all the people in the UK for coming here and fighting at Wembley. Now everything is done.
