Usyk vs AJ: Uncut new video reveals what triggered Anthony Joshua’s emotional response following his loss against Oleksandr Usyk.
Following the announcement of the outcome of the rematch for the world heavyweight title on Saturday, Joshua is first seen remaining composed while shaking hands and conversing with Usyk’s attired manager Egis Klimas.
He then engages in verbal combat with the former three-weight world champion of Ukraine, Vasyl Lomachenko, who is visible wearing a black bucket hat. After that, he fist-bumps two members of Usyk’s team, brushes off another who is wearing a black t-shirt and taps Joshua on the shoulder, seemingly to move him along.
Then, as Usyk looked to be presenting two of his titles to the champion, Joshua takes the belts from chief trainer Yurii Ivanovich Tkachenko and brings them to the other side of the ring, where he throws them on the floor.
Back on his feet, the British boxer looks to bump shoulders with Tkachenko, who responds with a remark to start a violent argument that saw Joshua’s teammates restrain him.
Then, Joshua is seen leaving the arena and hurling his towel in frustration before acting irately in response to a remark made by someone who is not in the image.
After turning around and returning to the ring, he shakes Usyk’s hand and offers him his congratulations once again. He then goes in search of the microphone to deliver his post-fight address.
“I feel nothing but respect for Anthony Joshua,” said Usyk afterwards. “I saw he was a bit emotional and he was bullying some of my teammates.
“But I don’t recommend him to have a bare-knuckle fight with them because they are horrible street fighters.
“I have 20 bouts and 20 wins at the moment, some of my guys have 25 [wins] and 25 by the way of knockout.”
