Ricky Hatton announced his retirement from boxing after his ninth-round knockout by Vyacheslav Senchenko in Manchester, insisting: "I needed one more fight to see if I had still got it - and I haven't."
An emotional Hatton said he would devote his future to his family and his promotional activities after coming to the conclusion to call it a day despite having initially suggested he may consider fighting on.
A badly bruised Hatton said: "I found out tonight it isn't there no more. I'm a straight-shooter and I tell the truth. I can look at myself in the mirror and tell myself I did my best, but there is always an excuse to find."
