[, Music, ], [, Music, ], hello, there, boxing fans around the world.
Thank you once again for joining me on talk and fight.
Where i discuss with you the news from around the world, the headlines, courtesy of boxing 247 across the pond, headed by christian von sponik, who also joins me on on a monday to fr on monday to thursday, show where we discuss uh boxing in general.
And today we discussed uh the first headline of the day.
Today we discussed alexander usyk and anthony joshua’s fight, which to me uh was a bit of a disappointment, but it is what it is uh christian’s right when he says that that now opens up a little bit of the backlog in the heavyweight division.
Uh and let me just read you quickly: the uh the result.
First of all, the titles, the wba wbo and ibf world titles, uh on the line, uh joshua, was beaten on points and soundly beaten.
I might add we we thought he might come out uh swinging hard, taking advantage of his reach, but uh music proved to be quite uh, the quicker tougher opponent and certainly as you watch the 12th round unfold, anthony joshua definitely was beaten anyway.
Let me read you: the article alexander yousick featured one of the greatest heavyweight moments of these times.
He arrived in london against the odds and defeated anthony joshua by unanimous decision to world the wba super championship, along with the ivf, wbo and ibo belts at the tottenham hotspur stadium tottenham, who then lost the next day to arsenal the judges scored about 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113, which gave the ukrainian a unanimous decision in victory to win the belts held by the britain.
The venue had 60 000 people, cheering for the home fighter.
Joshua received the support of most of the crowd and combined that motivated factor with the fact that he was the bigger 20 pounds, heavier younger and more experienced in the category.
But for the first moment, yousek made it clear that he was all in for the victory and made a very mobile fight, circling joshua and throwing punches with force.
The good news for the southpaw fighter was that from the moment he landed the first punch.
He knew he could hurt joshua and that gave him confidence absolutely.
In fact, in the third round he managed to put the hitherto champion in trouble with straight left, and that was usually the first big moment in the fight in the middle rounds.
Joshua was able to get a distance that favored him and connected good punches, especially straight rights and uppercuts to the body that pushed the challenger back.
Those punches caused a cut to his u-6 eyebrow, but the 30-year-old 34 year old fighter, instead of running away continued with his plan, which helped him close well and connect the best punches.
He even gave away 20 intense seconds at the end of the fight in which joshua stayed on on his feet.
Out of pure heart, but badly hurt.
Music is now the new unified heavyweight champion and approved his record to 19 wins no losses and 13 knockouts joshua, who made a great performance, dropped.
His record, however, to 24 wins two losses with 22 knockouts.
The result will likely scuppers the previous plan of a four belt unification uh between joshua and tyson fury, which was the plan for the summer until deontay wilder successfully forced a trilogy boat.
With the current wbc champ, there was rematch clause in the contract, joshua promoted eddie.
Here and told the zone during the post fight show that joshua would invoke it.
When we go to the uh next story.
