Ukrainian professional boxer Oleksandr Usyk kept his heavyweight titles unified WBO, WBA, and IBF King Abdullah Sports City Arena in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Usyk won from split decision 2W-1L(116-112, 115-113, and 113-115). This match was the second time since Usyk outpointed Anthony Joshua in London last year.
Unlike the first match, Joshua had pushed Usyk with an uppercut until six rounds, but the mood turned around after Usyk marked out near Joshua’s right eye.
Joshua vents his dissatisfaction while Usyk gives his victory to his homeland, Ukraine, after the game.
