Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk LIVE RESULTS: Re-match latest as Ukrainian wins, AJ eye socket injury – reaction


Anthony Joshua has said he will fight Tyson Fury ‘without the belts’ after last night’s defeat.

Boxing fans had been anticipating a unification bout with Fury, until Oleksandr Usyk upset the odds last night.

In his post-fight press conference, AJ said: “The road to undisputed and all that stuff, it’s good.

“As I said, I’ll fight Tyson Fury, Wilder, without the belts.

“The belts are fun. It’s great, it’s legacy. But with or without the belts, I’ll fight whoever. The road to undisputed is a nice title to have and a nice title to chase.

“But would you still watch it, without the belts? That’s the main thing – is you’ve got two competitive fighters in the ring from UK soil, that just want to go toe-to-toe.”
