Paris Fury, the wife of heavyweight boxer Tyson, has admitted she wanted him to call time on his boxing career following his first fight with Deontay Wilder.
The 'Gypsy King's' bout with the 'Bronze Bomber' ended in a controversial draw in Las Vegas, despite the fact Fury looked to have won most of the rounds.
The Brit was knocked down twice by Wilder, however, with one of the putdowns coming in the final round.
Most viewers expected Fury to stay down after the second brutal hit from the American, including Paris, who was watching ringside.

Fury has suffered mental health problems in recent years.
And Paris admitted on Tuesday that she still has fears over the Manchester boxer suffering a relapse.
She told This Morning: "I never think of him going to lose. He always goes to win and that's how we want to think of things – that he's going in there positive.
"The truth of it is that it's 50-50. When you go into a fight, especially at this level, it's very dangerous and there is always a chance of serious injury.
"That is very worrying for me, I don't think he actually thinks about it!
"And with his mental health and with the problems that came with him retiring in the past, it's sort of always been an ongoing problem, with Tyson having mental health issues.
"We only found out when he got diagnosed a couple of years ago.
"Its hard because you worry if he lost or of is he loses that dedication towards boxing, would he sink back to those lows?"
