Usyk defeated Joshua twice

British boxer Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) has expressed his admiration for Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), to whom he lost two fights. The Watford native called our compatriot one of the best boxers in the history of sport and wished him success in his future performances.

Joshua said this in an interview with DAZN Boxing. He recalled all the achievements of the Ukrainian boxer - both in his amateur career, where he fought dozens of fights, became a world and Olympic champion, and in the professional ring.


"He is the unified heavyweight champion. He has proven himself well. He is a very talented fighter. If you look at his amateur career, he won world championships, he won the Olympic Games. Then he became the absolute heavyweight champion, the super heavyweight champion. I think he's one of the best heavyweights of all time, and he's now taking his territory in the super heavyweight division. Even though I hate to lose, I wish him all the best because he's a great champion," said Joshua.


Recall that Usyk was unable to agree on a fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion with the British Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs). The day before, Oleksandr commented publicly on the cancellation of the fight with Fury for the first time. In his turn, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn expressed confidence that the Ukrainian's fight against Tyson would take place.


Earlier, the World Boxing Association (WBA) issued an ultimatum to Usyk and Fury and named the British Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs) as a mandatory contender for the Ukrainian's championship belt. Our compatriot decided to leave his training camp after the news of the cancellation of the fight with Tyson. And the Briton was literally furious about the cancellation of the fight and showered Oleksandr with insults.


As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Usyk's promoter Oleksandr Krasiuk revealed the details of negotiations with Tyson Fury and the reason for the cancellation of the historic superfight. And boxing fans have been tearing the Gypsy King apart online.

The British promoter threatened the Ukrainian with the loss of his championship belt. In addition, American Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) admitted that he was not surprised by the disruption of the Usyk-Fury fight.
