Joshua's promoter: "Anthony considers the second fight with Usyk a disaster"

Promoter Eddie Hearn said that boxer Anthony Joshua, despite good boxing, still considers the second fight against Oleksandr Usyk a disaster for himself.

At the same time, the Briton was close to success in the 9th round.

"I think that Joshua showed himself well in the second fight. Could have done more, but after the ninth round I thought Anthony was winning. And then Usyk closed the fight in an incredible way, it was great. But Joshua considers the second fight a disaster. I tell him that he showed himself normally, he lost on points to perhaps the best boxer regardless of the category."

"And you have to forget about Joshua's first fight - there were wrong tactics," said Hearn.

Joshua will return to the ring on April 1st in a fight with Jermaine Franklin, and Usyk still cannot agree on a fight with Tyson Fury.
