Anthony Joshua loses World Titles To Oleksandr Usyk

Joshua looked one-paced with Usyk more often being the aggressor

Oleksandr Usyk is that the new unified heavyweight world champion after beating Anthony Joshua with a fabulous display in London fight.

The Ukrainian placed on a masterclass ahead of 65,000 fans population inside Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, outsmarting Joshua over twelve 12 rounds, and causing damage to the defending champion on different occasions.

These are the unanimous decision scorecards by the three judges– 117-112, 116-112, 115-113 – and were all for Usyk and there was a mere shrug of the shoulders from Joshua because the second encounter of defeat of his boxing professional career was approved.

Having seen a fight with fellow Briton Tyson Fury collapse last summer, Joshua decided to face his WBO mandatory challenger and former undisputed cruiserweight champion Usyk instead.

It appeared the better fight for Joshua, but boxing’s victory returned to stadium nights was sad for the house filled by a very unexpected display from the challenger.
