BREAKING: Oleksandr Usyk Beats Anthony Joshua [Video]

Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk has defeated Anthony Joshua.

iexclusivenews reports that Oleksandr Usyk outboxed British Anthony Joshua to retain his IBF, IBO, WBA (Super), and WBO titles in a split decision on Saturday night, August 20, 2022.

This online news outlet understands Usyk won on a split points decision after the pair went the full 12 rounds – 113 to 115, 115 to 113, and 116 to 112.

iexclusivenews Nigeria reports that Joshua threw two of the title belts over the side of the ropes before storming out of the ring after the judges’ decision was declared.

However, he returned to the ring and grabbed the mic, telling the King Abdullah Sports City:

“If you knew my story, you would understand the passion.

I ain’t no amateur boxer from five years old that was an elite prospect from youth.

I was going to jail, I got bail, and I started training me a*** off, I wanted to be able to fight.

This guy beat me tonight, maybe I could have done better, but it shows the level of hard work I put in, so please give him a round of applause as our heavyweight champion of the world.”
