The British ex-world heavyweight champion believes that he did not perform well in the second fight with the Ukrainian.

Anthony Joshua called the worst defeat of his career. According to the former world heavyweight champion, that’s how losing a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk was.

According to the British boxer, he didn’t think he could beat the Ukrainian and he didn’t perform very well.

“The most painful defeat was in the second fight against Usyk. It was so painful. Do I respect Usyk? Yes, this defeat was not just touching.

It is weak. I gave a poor performance. In my mind, I didn’t expect to lose. I dedicated my life to this game, I gave it my all, I swear to you. I have given a lot. Even as I talk about it now, I have a small lump in my throat.

When you give everything to something, it’s not easy. We are only given credit after successes. Boxing has no silver medals. I didn’t do enough,” Joshua was quoted as saying by the Independent.

It will be remembered that Joshua experienced three defeats in his career: early from Andy Ruiz and two on points (unanimous and separate decisions of the judges) from Usyk.

This Saturday, August 12, Anthony Joshua will fight Robert Helenius. Boxers used to have a fighting perspective.
