"Before I fought Deontay Wilder 3, I was in my house in Vegas and I said to (wife) Paris 'this is going to be the last fight, I just don't want to do it anymore' and she said 'yes I'm happy, let it be the last fight.'

"Then after the fight, I said to her in the shower, 'it's definitely the last fight, there's no more of this.'

"I was happy with that decision. I get a call from Frank (Warren) saying we can do a homecoming fight at Wembley. I said to Paris 'I've got to go one more time, I've got to get the boots out again.'

"It was a tough decision. I was happy being in Morecambe retired and going to the gym to watch Joe Parker and Tommy (Fury) train."
