BREAKING! ANTHONY Joshua loses out again to Usyk by split decision

ANTHONY Joshua’s hope to recapture his unified heavyweight titles against Oleksandr Usyk ended in utter disappointment as the Champion proved himself with a split decision over his challenger in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Saturday night.

In a clash billed as the Rage on the Red Sea, a spirited Joshua, 32, showed some aggressiveness and intent – a vast improvement from their first fight – but could not match the brilliance and ring savviness of the Ukrainian.

Two judges scored the fight 115-113 and 116-112 to Usyk, while a third judge gave it 115-113 to the challenger. While there were some close rounds, Usyk was the deserved winner.

Joshua suffers back-to-back defeats to Usyk, with the Ukrainian retaining the WBA (Super), WBO and IBF titles he won in London last September.
