Joshua lost to Usyk

In the locker room after his defeat in a rematch against Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), British boxer Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) demanded that his promoter Eddie Hearn organize him a new fight as soon as possible. At the same time, the Watford native quickly calmed down after losing the fight against our compatriot.

Joshua's trainer Robert Garcia told izquierdazo.com about this in an interview. The American specialist added that he liked his ward's reaction to the defeat by Usyk and his desire to return to the ring by the end of the fight.

"Watching him change in the locker room, you could see the disappointment on his face. He didn't want to lose, that's obvious, I know him. He was still a little upset about the defeat, but we quickly calmed him down. Hearn was with us for a while and I liked that Anthony told him right away that he wanted to fight in the near future, told him he wanted to fight in November. Joshua said he wants to fight as soon as possible because he doesn't want to be in a state of failure for a long time, he wants to come back to win as soon as possible," Garcia said.

Earlier, he explained Joshua's hysteria after the fight with Usyk, when Anthony threw the Ukrainian's championship belts outside the ring. In addition, Garcia also spoke about what Oleksandr's triumph in the fight on August 20 means for Ukraine.

As a reminder, Oleksandr Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua by split decision. Our compatriot defended the belts according to the World Boxing Organization (WBO), the World Boxing Association (WBA) and the International Boxing Federation (IBF), and also won the Ring Magazine title. This made him the strongest boxer on the planet regardless of weight category.

As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn explained the behavior of his client, who threw a tantrum in the ring after the result of the fight with Usyk was announced. A new video of the British boxer's emotions was published.

One of the scandalous moments was the judging. The American Glenn Feldman gave the victory to Joshua, but could not explain his decision. The work of the US representative angered Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko (16-2, 11 KOs). Our boxer tried to calm Joshua down after the fight.

The legendary Russian champion Kostya Tszyu did not recognize Usyk's victory over Joshua and also said that he did not consider the Ukrainian a great boxer. Another Russian, Dmitry Kudryashov, said that Oleksandr "simply overwhelmed" his opponent. Murat Gassiev, Usyk's former rival, said what surprised him about the Ukrainian's rematch with Joshua.

After the fight, Usyk said that he intends to fight Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs). The Gypsy King responded by issuing an ultimatum to organize such a fight and spoke harshly about the Ukrainian.

Joshua's trainer Robert Garcia spoke frankly about the defeat of his ward. In addition, the legendary Evander Holyfield explained Anthony's loss. Usyk himself showed off photos of his return to Ukraine.
