Oleksandr Usyk Beats Anthony Joshua To Retain Heavyweight Titles

Oleksandr Usyk has out boxed Anthony Joshua to retain his IBF, IBO, WBA (Super) and WBO titles in a split decision on Saturday.

The Judges scored the fight 115-113 to Joshua, 115-113 to Usyk and 116-112 to Usyk.

Joshua who was not pleased with the result got close to leaving the arena after throwing two of the belts on the ground and asking Usyk, “You are not skilled, how did you beat me?”

He, however, returned to the ring, grabbed the microphone and asked the crowd to applaud Usyk.

He went ahead to say, “Usyk is one hell of a fighter. That’s just emotion.

“If you knew my story, you’d understand the passion. I’m not an amateur boxer. I was going to jail and I got bail and I started training. If I got sentenced, I wanted to be able to fight.

“It shows the passion we put into this. For this guy to beat me tonight, it shows the levels of hard work he must have put in so please give him a round of applause as heavyweight champion of world.

“They said that I’m not a 12-round fighter. I ain’t 14 stone, I’m 18 stone, I’m heavy. It’s hard work. This guy here is phenomenal.”
