After Anthony Joshua lost to Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 25th September, 2021, he sent a powerful message to his fans on social media platforms.
According to Joshua:
I’ve watched the fight, analysed my preparations and identified my mistakes. I’ve learnt my lesson.
Thanks for sending love and checking in. Don’t worry about me. My spirit is strong!
The dangerous Ukrainian, Usyk put on a stunning display to take AJ’s WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO belts in front of a sell-out crowd in north London.
Joshua, who suffered a nasty eye injury and looked shattered at the final bell, has a rematch clause and will now face a vital return clash against Usyk as both eye a huge unification blockbuster against either Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder in 2022
