Usually after a boxing match win or lose, Anthony Joshua is very respectful and classy with his competitiveness. However, on this day he felt for the first time that he was robbed of a clear victory. Oleksandr Usyk won the rematch by split decision with official score cards reading (113-115, 115-113, 116-112). After hearing the official result Anthony Joshua picked up Usyk’s belts then threw them down, and stormed out the ring. He would later return to the ring, and give one of the most awkward post fight speeches that seemed like his way of cleverly interrupting Usyk’s celebration. Before making the speech it sounded like Anthony Joshua said, “How did you beat me” to Usyk in a condescending manner.
On the post fight show a UK reporter suggested that Anthony Joshua went crazy, because he had a concussion.

Most people might think that Deontay Wilder would kick Anthony Joshua while he’s down, but he’s a different man since being humbled by Tyson Fury. Deontay Wilder revealed a strange alleged contractual request he got prior to fight that could suggest the outcome was predetermined. In a tweet reacting to Anthony Joshua losing to Oleksandr Usyk a second time Deontay Wilder wrote, “They tried to lock me in for insurance, because they knew he wasn’t going to win. This is strictly a business, not a sport there’s a difference”. Essentially Wilder seemed to suggesting that the powers that be fixed the result, and cheated Anthony Joshua so he would lose no matter what. Ultimately it paves way for them to make that Tyson Fury vs Usyk match.
Times have really changed since the days when Tyson Fury announced he was fighting Anthony Joshua mistakenly. Ever since then his career went downhill, and now he it seems like Anthony Joshua went crazy on live TV.
Boxing is known to be one of the most corrupt sports in the world in terms of people behind scenes pulling strings to make sure they get the results that make the most money. There was once a time when Anthony Joshua was the cash cow, which made the thought of him being cheated seemingly impossible. The fact that it’s now possible he was on the losing end of a fixed fight could show how far his overall star power has fallen in the eyes of promoters.
There’s no doubt Anthony Joshua will bounce back from this though.
