JOSHUA HEAVYWEIGHT LOSS TO Usyk: Joshua Will Trigger A Rematch – Promoter

Published

on

After losing all three belts to the Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk by a unanimous decision in a devastating defeat on Saturday night in front of 67,000 fans at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the now-former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is already talking up a rematch willing to reclaim his 3 heavyweight title belts back immediately.

Joshua loss IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles to an underdog Ukranina fighter on Saturday night in a masterclass outboxing bout.

Usyk, the former undisputed cruiserweight king, now owns the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight belts.

But like his experience after his first professional defeat to Andy Ruiz in 2019 where he had to trigger a rematch clause to win his belts back, Anthony Joshua is already talking about getting back in training to retake on Usyk.

According to his promoter, Eddie Hearn in post-fight, Joshua ‘is already talking about training again’. He said: “He’s already talking about training again. A devastating defeat. Congratulations to Oleksandr Usyk, what a fighter, a great performance tonight, the better man won.”

“The fighter in AJ, he’s already talking about, ‘I’ll win the rematch, I’ll win the rematch.’ It was a tough defeat. I had it reasonably close in the eighth or ninth then Usyk just ran away with it, I thought 8-4, even 7-5 the best scenario.”

“Usyk was the deserved winner and Joshua has got to make changes in the rematch because if that happens again, of course, he’ll get beat. He’s got to impose himself early.

“It’s straight back into the fire and It’ll be really difficult because Usyk’s confidence will be sky-high. When you get to the level of Joshua, as we saw after the Ruiz defeat, there’s no 10-round comeback fights or warm-ups, you’re straight back in.

“He’ll want to go straight back into that rematch. He’ll be an underdog but that’s what he does. He was beaten by the better man.”
