All sports Usky Defeats Joshua On Unanimous Decision To Retain Heavyweight Title

Oleksandr Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua on points in Saudi Arabia to retain his heavyweight boxing world titles.

Joshua puts on a better performance than he did in their first fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September of last year, but Usyk was still too much for him over the course of the 12 rounds, retaining his IBF, WBO, and WBA (Super) heavyweight belts and winning the Ring magazine title that Tyson Fury had left vacant with a split-decision victory.

The fight was given a score of 115-113 in favor of AJ by one judge, 116-112 in favor of Usyk by the second, and 116-112 in favor of the world champion by the third.

Joshua started the rematch with more vigor than he did 11 months prior, and neither man gave ground.

To become the first undisputed champion of boxing’s top division since the great Lennox Lewis, the Ukrainian will now try to persuade Fury to come out of retirement for a lucrative fight.
