Brooks was already on cloud nine after completing his life’s work, so he didn’t want to risk losing that euphoric feeling by getting his 40 winks.

I said BBC: “I think I have to say [the highlight would be] won the world title.

“Obviously going to Carson, California, going to America – his back garden – and winning the world title.

“I didn’t sleep for three days because I was afraid that if I went to bed, I would wake up and it was a dream. I swear I was walking on air.”

The jubilation he felt seconds after being announced that he had dethroned Porter behind enemy lines was a moment Special K would never forget.

“Everybody who walks into boxing gyms around the world wants to go out and be a world champion,” he said.

“Not only won your own back garden, Sheffield, the city of Sheffield, I went to his back garden in the US and everyone got rid of me. And I won a close match.

“I don’t want to go to sleep.

“You can immediately see the emotion when I win and what it means to me.

“For someone who wears those gloves, they all want to be world champions. Go out and do it. [mean’t so much to me]. “

Brook, 35, will be back in action on Saturday night for a The long-awaited Battle of Britain against Amir Khan.

And he promises a dramatic fight that will make ‘King’ Khan explode across the frame.

He added: “Pace meets speed.” I am always looking for ways to execute my shots.

“We’re in it for a long time – there will be a time when we’ll trade. There’s going to be a lot of drama in the fight.”
