Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk LIVE RESULTS: AJ suffers ‘suspected damaged eye socket’ in loss


Here is what Usyk, the new heavyweight champion of the world had to say after his upset.

He roared: “The fight went exactly the way I expected it to go. There were a couple of moments when Anthony pushed me hard, but no, nothing special.

“I had no objective to knock him out because my corner pushed me not to do that.

“In the beginning I pushed hard to knock him out but my trainer said: ‘No, do your job’.

“I’ve been working so hard since January in preparation for this fight. It took me half a year and I didn’t see my family for so long.

“I miss my children and watching them play. I want to go home and see my family, and I’m not thinking about a rematch at the moment.

“You didn’t see the best Usyk, I can be much better.”
