Boxing News: Oleksandr Usyk, the heavyweight champion, defeats Anthony Joshua in a thrilling rematch

Boxing News: In a thrilling 12-round fight, Oleksandr Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua for the second time in a row to successfully defend his unified WBO, WBA, and IBF world heavyweight belts.

On the cards of Viktor Fesechko of Ukraine and Steve Gray of the United Kingdom, Usyk won by scores of 116–112 and 115–113, respectively, in the King Abdullah Sports City Arena in Jeddah. Glenn Feldman of the USA gave Joshua a 115-113 advantage.

The outcome enraged Joshua. Before storming off, he grabbed two championship belts and hurled them out of the ring.

Then Joshua returned, grabbed the microphone, and let out an explosive rant.

“I’m stealing this Usyk, I’m sorry, but it’s because of the passion we put into this,” Joshua told the crowd during his two-minute speech.
