The fact that he was definitely annoyed by the - sometimes nasty - comments was underlined, among other things, by the fact that he addressed his post to "smart alecks and know-it-alls".
He also writes that he would have liked to fight on. "I would have liked to fight further and I could have, but I don't go against the decision of the referee or the boxing federation." Also the following sentence: "So to all those who, like in the Bundesliga, always make much better decisions from their sofa at home than the national coach on the field should just get into the ring and cut a better figure...shows that it certainly makes a huge difference than just 'dry boxing'. and actually having to face the other person's fist.
