Speaking after the fight, Usyk said: “The fight went the way I expected it to go.

“There were a couple of moments where Anthony Joshua pushed me hard, but just nothing special. I had no objective to knock him out because my trainers pushed me not to do that.

“At the beginning I hit him hard and tried to knock him out but my trainers said to stop and just do my job.

“The only thing I wanted to do with this fight was to praise my Lord, Jesus Christ and say all comes from him. Today, 12 years ago, my wife said to me yes, today I am double happy.

“I have been working so hard since January in preparation for this fight, it took me half a year and I didn’t see my family for so long. I miss my family, I want to go home and I am not thinking about the rematch at the moment.

“You didn’t see the best Usyk, I can be much better.”
