Joshua vs Usyk post fight. Usyk vs Joshua post fight. Anthony Joshua defeat to Usyk. Anthony Joshua’s points defeat to Oleksandr Usyk
Oleksandr Usyk beat Anthony Joshua on a unanimous points decision to become world heavyweight champion.
A potential heavyweight rematch between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury has been dismissed as ‘completely off the table’ after the events of Saturday night.
Adam Catterall said: “Unless we get something miraculous in the rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, where Anthony Joshua comes raging back in and knocks the dude out…
“Listen, he has done it before, he’s revamped before hasn’t he? He got embarrassed by Andy Ruiz Jr, went away and came back with a totally different game plan, boxed completely differently in the rematch and got the job done.
“Oleksandr Usyk and Andy Ruiz are two totally different cats though. Can he do this in second fight? Yes he can, because it is heavyweight boxing.
“I personally think that is completely off the table.”
New champion Usyk has revealed his trainer advised him against trying to KO AJ last night.
“I had no objective to knock him out because my trainer, in my corner, pushed me not to do that,” Usyk said after.
“In the beginning I hit him hard and tried to knock him out.
“But then my trainer said: ‘Just stop, and do your job’.”
