Anthony Joshua has suffered his second professional defeat. The 26-year-old Englishman lost to Ukraine's Alexander Usyk on Saturday 24 September after a unanimous decision by the judges.
Joshua lost his WBA, WBO and IBF belts at a packed Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. He was the favorite for the fight yet Joshua came close to a knockout. He ended the fight with a shattered eye.
Usyk is now the new king of the heavyweights and this is only his third fight in the top category of boxing. The 34-year-old Ukrainian has thus achieved a double as world light heavyweight champion and heavyweight champion. Only the American Evander Holyfield had achieved such a feat.
