Usyk outclassed Joshua at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, with all three judges awarding him the fight by scores of 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113. He is now undefeated in 19 professional fights, picking up his third win in the heavyweight division.

 

Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports he expects Joshua - who wants a rematch with Usyk - to be an underdog if the two fight again.

 

He said: "He will want to go back in that rematch, and he will be the underdog in that fight but he has just been beaten by a pound-for-pound great.

 

"Joshua lives and breathes boxing, he is already talking about training again and he will be in the gym and ready to get back in again.
