Losing this is so incredibly AJ. Just like Ruiz he was more focused on the next one.

There's no way he would've been overlooking Usyk like he did Ruiz. He came in fully prepared tonight, make no mistake.

Usyk just showed there's levels. He put on an absolute clinic last night. Joshua just didn't have an answer, at all.

Usyk's the best Cruiserweight of all time and will go down as an ATG.

Fury vs Usyk will be a great fight, but I feel Tyson will know how to use his weight and height advantage in a way that Joshua couldn't. Fury is a much better boxer than Joshua and Usyk might not be able to bridge that size gap as the technical advantage won't be as great.

What a shame we'll probably never see Fury vs Joshua though, Fury probably would've done a Wilder 2 on Joshua, on that showing anyway.

What a performance from Usyk last night the man is an absolute machine! Possibly the best I've ever seen his head movement, footwork, timing of shots he's porn of the boxing world, Had the luxury of seen him in the flesh against Bellew thankfully!

I was 100% convinced he would beat Joshua last night and boy did he put on a show, Joshua got his arse handed to him he's nothing but a big shit static robot.
I'd say Tyson Fury was raging last night watching it too, I hope this puts the whole Joshua v Fury debate to bed now once and for all, Joshua shouldn't be named in the same bracket as Fury! Fury would take the piss out of Joshua for 12 rounds completely go to town on him.

Anyway, I hope Usyk takes over now he's capable of beating absolutely anybody he fears nobody and rightly so.

GET IN USYK!

he is some fighter

Joshua is a very good fighter but last night he was beaten by a fighter who was levels above him and you are right about about fury aswell because usyk beats him easily aswell. The only way you beat usyk is by going in there and actually trying to go to war with him which again may not guarantee the win but at least you have a chance because outboxing him is not going to happen. Not very often you see elite fighters come around so make the most of it and enjoy. And don’t forget in 19 pro fights with his guy has unified cruiserweight and has 3 heavyweight belts .

p4p I agree he beats most but just think the size and style of fury maybe to big of an ask

I’m not a huge Fury fan, apart from the 2nd Wilder fight I find his fights horrible to watch
Just think he will be all over Usyk, holding him dropping his weight all over him and just wearing him out, I thought AJ should’ve been getting closer and leaning all over him last night, use your advantages, Ali was a master at it

All this over looking bollocks being touted, drivel

Usyk is a refined boxer and AJ is a robot in comparable terms, so pleased for Usyk and you see what it means to the lad, taken nothing for granted and exposed what has been apparent since the first Ruiz fight, AJ is well managed, however elite he isn’t, despite original excitement (me included)....

There is so much to like and admire about Usyk. I'm really not that arsed that my fellow countryman lost to him last night as I truly believe he isn't the boxer we're led to think he is.

I hope Usyk goes on and batters the lot of them.

feel the same, just a shame he’snot 28 and we see him for years yet

We were all sat round watching AJ's ringwalk and all said wtf. Looked totally unfocused, wanting to touch gloves with anyone and everyone and I just don't think he has that nasty killer streak required to be top level. If he has a rematch he should change his corner men as they gave him shit advice all through the fight. Just before the 11th, they said stay behind your jab and let him come to you???. He had the centre of the ring for the majority of the fight but didn't utilise it to his advantage

Just gutted Usyk didn't wear his City top like he did when he came over to fight Bellew, would of capped off a perfect day.

I don't buy into Joshua's got great boxing skills cos he danced around fat Ruiz in the return.
He got boxed to death last night by the superior man.
Joshua has now lost his belts and is at a crossroads with Sly sports, thats why he is know spouting off he will fight Fury without the need for belts, aye ok Anthony

The centre of the ring is the last place he should be against such a skilled boxer, the tactics were simple, he should of capitalised on a greater weight advantage (he trimmed down far to much) as he never had the boxing skills to trouble him, that weight will of enabled him to wear him down, thus fatigue beats Usyk!
