Oleksandr Usyk is the new heavyweight champion! Joshua is beaten!

Oleksandr Usyk is the new heavyweight world champion after securing victory over Anthony Joshua in London.

Having conquered the cruiserweight division, the undefeated Ukrainian has now taken Joshua’s IBF, WBO and WBA heavyweight titles after a sublime points victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Usyk was handed the win after shutting out the Briton with tactical masterclass, demonstrating why he is regarded as one of the best-pound-for-pound fighters in boxing.

It is the second defeat of Joshua’s professional career after his shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019.
