Following the Ukrainian’s comeback to successfully defend his heavyweight world belts in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, Anthony Joshua lamented his second defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua became enraged after failing to hand Usyk his first loss as a professional and flung two of his belts on the floor before storming out of the ring.
The British fighter sensed victory when he had Usyk hanging on in the tenth round.
The nimble southpaw fired back, though, and he eventually won by a split decision.
Usyk, who keeps the IBF, WBA, and WBO championships, is now looking for a unification fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury, leaving Anthony Joshua to rebuild his career following his third loss.
“I should have won,” Joshua lamented.
“I adapted, I made the change that I needed to give him more of a competitor. It wasn’t enough but I left everything in the gym.”
