FANS all said the same thing as Anthony Joshua’s team told him he was BEATING Oleksandr Usyk.
AJ, 32, succumbed to a split-decision defeat in their thrilling rematch in Saudi Arabia.
He went down 115-113, 113-115, 112-116 on the judges’ scorecards.
However, he was not helped by his corner telling him he was well in control of the fight.
New coach Robert Garcia and the rest of the team told AJ he was 3-0 up after three rounds – despite virtually everyone agreeing Usyk had taken at least one.
That could have meant AJ didn’t see the need to up the ante earlier to win on points – or go all out for a knockout.
Incredibly, a similar thing happened in the first fight against Usyk.
