Thank God Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder signed a rematch clause before the fight because yesterday's heavyweight championship bout ending in a draw left Boxing fans wanting more.
The 30-year-old still found cause for optimism after another impressive display at world title level, over three years after he took Wladimir Klitschko's world titles with a points win.
"I don't know anybody on the planet who could move like that".
"One hundred percent we'll do the rematch", Fury said.
"I just showed the world tonight, and everyone suffering with mental health problems, you can come back, and it can be done. But I don't want to take anything away from Wilder, the decision was not his fault and he's a fantastic fighter".
"I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight", Wilder said afterwards. "I'm going on a holiday and I need six months away from this man", Fury's trainer Ben Davison joked to media.
During the twelfth and final round between long-out-of-the-game TysonFury and now undefeated DeontayWilder, Fury was dealt a vicious combination of blows, culminating in a hook that initially seemed to knock him out cold.
In an oblique reference to the long count at that crucial moment: 'He said before the fight he would give anyone knocked down every chance to continue as long we said we were okay.
But former two-weight world champion Andre Ward wrote on Twitter: "A draw, I understand (even tho I feel Fury won by a 2 or 3 rds)".
"That's as bad a decision as the first Lennox Lewis-Evander Holyfield fight (in 1999), but who am I to say anything?"
The British boxer was the better man throughout, making the American miss over and over. Fury, after cracking the WBC champion, continued with his ducking and dodging in the second round before Wilder cracked him with a shot on the chin right before the bell.
"When you're on your back flat out, you don't know what your legs will be like", he said. The buildup was the buildup, and we had a great buildup.
His awkward style and constant feints had Wilder struggling to find the target for much of the night, apart from his two notable successes.
A punch to the top of Fury's head shockingly put him down in the ninth, but he bounced up quickly.
"I hope I did you all proud after almost three years out of the ring", Fury continued. Opinions were divided on the judges' decision, however, with some claiming that Fury was robbed of one of the greatest comebacks in history despite two knockdowns. It was Fury, after all, who started the current heavyweight renaissance by doing the impossible in 2015 to end Klitschko's monotonous lineal reign.
