Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk 2 LIVE RESULTS: Brit LOSES rematch and Tyson Fury says he will fight Ukrainian in undisputed heavyweight world title fight


Anthony Joshua lost his heavyweight world title rematch against Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia.

The Brit was much improved from their first encounter as he once again took the unbeaten Ukrainian the distance.

But Usyk’s ring craft just proved too much for Joshua as he clinched victory for the second time on points – taking a split decision 113-115, 115-113, 116-112.

The WBA (Super), IBF and WBO world titles remain in Usyk’s hands – and he now takes the Ring Magazine strap too.

Joshua, 32, must now rebuild having suffered his third career defeat, while Usyk, 35, remains unbeaten and will be seeking a unification fight with Tyson Fury, who insisted he is open to fighting for all the straps – if the money is right.
