British heavyweight Danny Williams has pledged to keep on boxing despite being outclassed and stopped in eight rounds by WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.
After a Las Vegas mismatch, promoter Frank Warren urged his charge to have a long think before fighting again.
But Williams told BBC Radio Five Live he would "regroup, enjoy the family and then get back into some hard training."
He added: "I want to continue. Look at Frank Bruno, he lost twice and then finally got his title."
Williams was taken to hospital for a precautionary brain scan after being stopped by Klitschko.
"I had stitches in my eye and a brain scan, but I was released and they said I was OK," he said.
"I'm very disappointed because I was not here to make up the numbers and I thought I could beat him.
"But I couldn't handle his style. Mike Tyson came forward and he was there to be hit, but Klitschko was leaning back."
Responding to suggestions that his weight - 19st 4lb - had slowed him down, Williams said: "I don't think it was a factor.
"I was only five pounds lighter for the Mike Tyson fight and that's just a couple of meals for a heavyweight.
"If I had lost a bit of weight I would probably not have made it through round one."
Warren conveyed respect and concern for Williams.
"If he does want to get back into the ring, we'll have to have a serious think about it because I couldn't have him in another fight like that," he said.
"He is a brave, brave man but my immediate advice is to have a think. It's not just about money, it's about your health."
