Charles in his interview with the Sky Sports said:

"One thing that's been ascertained is Derek Chisora is not retiring, he wants to fight on, He's a very proud man and obviously if he said he wasn't hurting, that would be a lie. I know my boy really well, it's hurting. He's putting a brave face on."
