I came so close to beaten him so it shows I belong at that level. A few mistakes can cost you dearly and that's what happened tonight. I'm gutted.
The way this city turned out, I've got to make sure I win a rematch. It's something I'm so thankful for. F irst of all I want to tell the people of Manchester thank you so much.
Anthony once told me that he was a fan of me, and I am a fan of his. We gave Manchester a beautiful fight, and we should do it again.
I hurt my hand in the sixth round a little bit, but I backed off and played it well strategically. I then decided to close in the final three rounds, and I think that gave me the victory.
I think I hurt him a couple of times and I saw him rock, but I didn't want to be too aggressive. I wanted to be intelligent. And that's what I did. Now I want to take a good break, and to make sure my hand heals.
And then why not come back to England? And why not come back to Manchester, I love it here! I want to thank my team, my corner, my wife and my family.
