He rose to his feet, but could not recover and fight on.

“I found a beautiful uppercut and that was it.

“I’ve been in this game 20 years, I’m 34 in a few months. I said the third Wilder fight would be my last but I felt I owed the fans one last homecoming.

“This is definitely the end of the Gypsy King and I went out with a bang.

“Tonight was amazing but this is the end.”
