 I didn't watch it to the end: a video of Usik's reaction to a terrible knockdown in the fight by Joshua & Ngannou appeared

The Ukrainian boxer reacted emotionally to the fall of the Cameroonian MMA fighter.

The WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF heavyweight world champion Alexander Usik was shown fragments of the fight between former world champion Anthony Joshua and ex-UFC champion Francis Ngannou, in which the Briton effectively destroyed his opponent.

AJ knocked outCameroonian MMA fighter in the second round. Before that, he managed to knock down his opponent twice.

Usyk, unlike WBC title holder Tyson Fury, did not attend the fight in Saudi Arabia. However, on the DAZN Boxing Twitter page they published a video of his reaction to one of the knockdowns that Ngannou suffered.

The Ukrainian closely followed what was happening in the ring. When Joshua knocked Francis to the canvas with a powerful blow, Alexander smiled with eloquent facial expressions and covered his laptop, not having seen the knockout.

For Joshua, the victory over Ngannou was his fourth in a row after two defeats to Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk. The British boxer lost to the Ukrainian by decision in 2021 and 2022, losing his championship belts.

Recall that Usik is now preparing for a fight with Fury for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. The fight was scheduled for February 17, but due to an injury that the “Gypsy King” received during one of the sparrings, it was postponed to May 18.

To avoid another breakdown of the fight , the organizers of the fight in Saudi Arabia have established sanctions that will be applied to Usik or Fury if one of them does not enter the ring on May 18. Boxersface a huge fineif they refuse to fight on the scheduled date.
