Breaking news… Usky beat Anthony Joshua on split decision

Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usky heavyweight boxing bout, which the Ukrainian reclaimed his titles via split decision

Gallant Anthony Joshua lost his bid to become heavyweight champion for the third time, as Oleksandr Usyk won the bout on a split decision, www.totorinews.com reports.

The Ukrainian was too sleeky and swift in the ring, hitting Joshua, while also avoiding the big punch from his opponent.

The first judge had it 115-113 to Joshua, the second 115-113 to Usyk and the third 116-112 to Usyk. The champion bursted into the tears as he was announced the winner.

Joshua had the glaring opportunity to win the fight with a knockout in round 9 had it been he was more aggressive and  assertive to finish off the Ukrainian.

The fight in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, follows their bout last year in London, where Usyk won the heavyweight belts from the British boxer.

Usyk was fighting on the frontline in Kyiv against the Russian aggression in Ukraine, but left the war-torn country in March to focus on his rematch with Joshua.
