Usyk thought Joshua acted like a child after their rematch.
Joshua acted bizarrely after Usyk was declared the points winner over him last month in Saudi Arabia. He dropped two of Usyk’s belts outside the ring before taking the mic and ranting. Joshua said his size prevents him from throwing punches like an old heavyweight.
Joshua: “I’m a new breed of heavyweight, like Mike Tyson, Sonny Liston, and Jack Dempsey.” “You’re no Rocky Marciano. 18 stone, heavy, hard work. “
Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) then asked the crowd to cheer on Usyk. In a recent interview, Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) compared Joshua’s actions to those of a “little boy.”
Usyk said in a YouTube video with English subtitles, “What a poor fool.” “Why are you doing that?” He reminded me of a boy who wanted to play with a ball but was denied, so he threw it over the neighbor’s fence to the fierce dog. Was it a wise choice? “
Usyk said he sympathized with Joshua’s post-fight antics.
Usyk: “He was freaked out, and no one should blame him.” He’d been training and believed in something, but he lost again.
His physical condition was good, but [mine] was better. It may explain verbal diarrhea.
