Gonna go early on this and go for an AJ stoppage.

No denying Usyk is great but I believe AJ will come again. X3 timer!

Hope Usyk does the job and retires Joshua once and for all.

Only one of them is a proper fighter and its not the bodybuilder

I nearly binned this thread thinking someone had slipped through and posted a spam message from the way the title looked

Bring back the good old days when we just had three channels that showed stuff worth watching, including world championship boxing!

Split decision? Not sure what fight the judge that gave it to Joshua was watching but that's boxing I suppose.

Joshua properly let himself down after the fight, I'm sure we'll hear he was concussed or some other bullshit but to me it was the actions of a man who just realised he's now an also ran. Bottom line is he was found out twice when he fought a proper fighter

"How did you beat me? I got skills. I had character, and determination...." AJ

Usyk had a right cheek taking that result. How dare he be more skilful/smarter πŸ˜… And box better.
And character and determination, facing off with the Russians in Ukraine doesn't count!

Never liked AJ. Impressive career/cv, but he's never been a likeable guy outside of the ring. Also, he never seemed to take his boxing as seriously as he perhaps should have done?
But all that attention and pressure can't be easy to shut out. Mind you, all that money...and 2 times unified Champ... Not done badly...

Like i say. AJ is not a nice chap. The fact he has to have the words, 'Stay Humble' printed on his shirts.. just to remind him...😁
But he was definitely concussed post fight. Punch drunk. We got another glimpse of his character. Amazing his 'handlers' didn't step in. This post match performance by AJ, and the one with Bellew...Usyk must think all Brits are weird πŸ˜‚ At least AJ wasn't kissing him.

Just watching it tonight. 4 rounds in and I'm thinking - is this even a boxing match?
Dancing around each other flicking shots out that have no hope of hitting.
Compare it to Benn and Eubank and it's ludicrously non-combative.

Round 9 and Joshua looking far more like a boxer. Usyk rocking.

Round 10 Joshua is waving Usyk on To me this looks like a staged fight.
