Anthony Joshua: I let my emotions get the better of me after Oleksandr Usyk loss | Boxing News



Anthony Joshua has vowed “to be better” after admitting to losing control of his emotions in defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua threw Usyk’s world title belts out of the ring and stormed out of the ring following his split decision defeat in Jeddah, only to return and launch into a remarkable speech that has been criticised by many.

But writing on Instagram, Joshua said: “I wish @usykaa continued success in your quest for greatness. You are a class act champ.

“Yesterday I had to mentally take myself into a dark place to compete for the championship belts! I had two fights, one with Usyk and one with my emotions and both got the better of me.

“I’ll be the first to admit, I let myself down. I acted out of pure passion and emotion and when not controlled it ain’t great.

“I love this sport so so much and I’ll be better from this point on. Respect.”
