Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk match update

Anthony Joshua’s second reign as world heavyweight champion has come to an abrupt end after an Oleksandr Usyk masterclass at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Anthony Joshua suffered only his second career defeat on Saturday night, leaving plans for a lucrative all-British unification showdown with Tyson Fury in shreds.

Joshua tweeted a obstinate message via his official Twitter account.

He wrote: “Keep positive

even if the world’s crumbling in front of you!

“London I love you & thank you each and every time!”

Hearn has confirmed that Joshua will go to hospital and is unsure if he has suffered a fractured eye socket.

“He will go to hospital,” Hearn told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“I don’t know if he has broken his eye socket, it doesn’t look great.”

Hearn added: “He said he couldn’t see after the ninth round, obviously he was getting tagged a lot as well.

“His power looked like it had left him, the tank was empty and it was only heart which kept him on his feet in the 12th round.”
