Former WBA, IBF, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has said his fight against Oleksandr Usyk was a great experience for him.
Candidreporters.com gathered that Anthony Joshua’s reign as world boxing heavyweight champion ended on Saturday, with the proposed “Battle of Britain” against Tyson Fury now in tatters.
This was after Oleksandr Usyk of Ukraine claimed a stunning unanimous decision win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
Scores of 117-112, 116-112, and 115-113 were rewarded after a near-masterclass from the unbeaten Usyk.
He became only the third fighter after Evander Holyfield and David Haye to win world titles at cruiserweight and heavyweight.
Joshua was obligated to face WBO mandatory challenger Usyk after a bout against Fury fell through earlier this year.
While narrating how Usyk beat him, Anthony Joshua said he saw nothing in the ninth round.
