On Saturday night, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua thereby becoming the new heavyweight Champion winning the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO after the 12-round bout based on unanimous decision at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The 34 years old cruiserweight king was dominant in the fight as he left Joshua's dream of his £500m fight with fellow Britain boxer, Tyson Fury in tatters.
Despite the loss, Anthony Joshua will keep the belts according to report as Oleksandr Usyk after posing with his new belts in the ring after the fight rushed down to the changing room to give them back to Joshua.
Consequently, the 31 years old Nigerian-descent and British professional boxer will kick-start his preparation ahead as he vows to fight his fellow Britain boxer, Tyson Fury.
Despite having his eye on Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua is also set to wrestle back his belts from Oleksandr Usyk like he did against Andy Ruiz two years ago, with the rematch already activated and is expected to take place in Ukraine.
With Anthony Joshua looking forward to his rematch against Usyk, he will also be fighting both Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder whether for a World title or not.
The question surrounding all these iconic fights ahead of Anthony Joshua is, Can he regain his titles before he faces Wilder or Fury or should his fight against the duo be a non-title bout?
