Former heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has reacted to his defeat by his opponent, Oleksandr Usyk.
Oleksandr Usyk has been made the world heavyweight champion after he clenched the WBA, WBO and IBF titles from Anthony Joshua.
Oleksandr Usyk was crowned as the new unified world heavyweight champion after a unanimous decision win over Anthony Joshua with scores of 117-112, 116-112, 115-113.
However, following his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk , Anthony Joshua has urged his fans to remain positive in the midst of hardships and uncertainties.
He disclosed that he has learnt some positive things out of his defeat and he is going back to the gym to work on his weakness and improve upon himself.
Oleksandr Usyk really gave a good account of himself as his well-mapped strategy took the Nigerian-born boxer by surprise and left his face badly bruised.
Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn whilst speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live exclaimed that the Briton fighter’s eye socket may have broken.
‘When he lost in New York everyone started analysing the dressing room, the ring walk,’ Hearn said.
‘He was fine, he was maybe a little too relaxed on the ring walk, he was shaking everyone’s hand, he was hugging a few people that is just AJ but I feel it was the wrong type of performance.
‘Sometimes you have to use your attributes.
‘[Joshua] never really got going, he will go to hospital now, I don’t know if he has broken his eye socket, it doesn’t look great.’
