‘I thought I was done. He was going gentle and letting me throw some punches. Then I said to him I wanted to experience what it was like to be hit, ‘Grant told The Daily Telegraph.

‘He gets to six or seven and I realize I can not talk. He was knocking the wind out of me. I could not call for help, I could not say my safe word. I had no air in my lungs. ‘

Grant continued: ‘My face started to turn a funny color. I went to vomit my toasted sandwich. He came out of his psychosis and he backed off. ‘
