Enzo Maccarinelli says the ups of his career outweigh the downs, as he prepares to face Jurgen Brahmer for the WBA light-heavyweight title in Rostock on Saturday.
Former WBO cruiserweight champion Maccarinelli has admitted he should have taken a break from the ring during a difficult period in his personal life.
But he is looking forward to the "surprise" shot against Brahmer.
Maccarinelli was talking to Sport Wales' Gareth Rhys Owen.
The full interview can be seen on BBC Two Wales at 20:00 BST on Friday 4, April.
