Boxing has kept me off the streets, stops me smoking and drinking and gives me something to do.
But my promoter Frank Warren knows what he is doing, and has been through this cycle many times with other fighters.
I had a good chance when I went to Beijing and the guy who beat me, I'd beaten him three weeks before and he went on to win silver.
I've had two fights within a month and I can't ask for more than that.
But as an amateur, the highest level you can box at is the Olympics. I did that at 18 and felt it was time to move on to other challenges as a professional.
