What Went Wrong During My Fight With Usyk—British Nigerian Boxer, Anthony Joshua

British Nigerian heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua has given an insight into what went wrong during his fight Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday night.

Joshua’s WBA, IBF, and WBO belts were ripped away by Usyk, who produced a masterful unanimous decision victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Joshua required medical attention after suffering a badly swollen right eye, which he admits had severely restricted his vision, Sky Sports reports.

“What went wrong? Just taking a loss, but we’ll get it right,” said Joshua.

“From the ninth, I couldn’t see in the ninth round. Couldn’t see anything really.

“My eye was shut, but it was a good experience, because in adversity, you’ve just got to learn to control yourself, stay on top of things, so when I couldn’t see anything, it’s the first time it’s happened in a fight.

“I was thinking, ‘Alright, cool, it’s the first time my eye has closed up in a fight. I can’t see nothing.’

“I’m looking out of one eye, but it got better as the rounds went on.”

However, Joshua says a fight against Tyson Fury could still happen in the future, even without his world heavyweight titles, after his loss to Oleksandr Usyk.
