Usyk Dedicates Victory Over Joshua To God

Ukrainian fighter, Oleksandr Usyk has insisted that there is nothing special about Anthony Joshua (AJ).

Oleksandr Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113 in front of official attendance of 66, 267 in the Tottenham Stadium on Saturday night.

The Nigerian-born British boxer gave up his IBF, WBA and WBO belts as a result of the devastating defeat by Usyk who won by a unanimous decision.

Joshua quickly left the ring and headed straight to the hospital after the Ukrainian dealt heavy damage to his right eye as he could barely see.

Usyk is now the new world heavyweight champion and speaking about the match, the Ukrainian said, “The fight went the way I expected it to go. There were a couple of moments where Anthony Joshua pushed me hard, but just nothing special.”

Speaking further, he said, “This means a lot for me.

“I had no objective to knock him out because my corner pushed me not to do that. In the beginning, I tried to hit him hard, but then I stuck to my job.

“The only thing I wanted to do with this fight is to give praise to Jesus Christ.

“I have been working so hard since January in preparation for this fight, it took me half a year and I didn’t see my family for so long.

“I missed seeing them playing. I want to go home and be happy with my family and I’m not thinking about the rematch.”

  • Really devastating and a big letdown by AJ. AJ keeps learning his lessons the hard way. I hope he recovers soon and comes back for a rematch. See Usyk with his empty boasts. Why didn’t he knock AJ down if he could? Which boxer doesn’t cherish a KO if he could get one?
    Yeye man!

  • Congrats champion. Please warm AJ not to go near fury. That will be fatal. AJ is not really my type of heavyweight champion… sentiment apart.

    Champ congrats…this says it all

    “The only thing I wanted to do with this fight is to give praise to Jesus Christ.
