But infuriating boxing politics mean the 30-0 ace has just relinquished his hard-earned IBF title to agree major fights with the other champions.

But thanks to the evergreen Portugal and Juventus icon, Warrington’s dedication is far from Q-wavering – even with his financial future secured.

He said: “Lockdown and the big void in sport has made me realise how much I love boxing.

“But I’m not going to be one of those fighters who goes on into their late 30s.

“I’ve been taking inspiration from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo.

“How has he managed to maintain his level at the top? It’s his mind-set.

“He doesn’t have to do anything, to prove anything to anyone.

“But he’s there and he’s working his wotsits off to be the best.”
