Usyk Defeats Joshua By Split Decision in Rematch

Oleksandr \Usky retains his heavyweight championship over 12 hard fought rounds over Anthony Joshua via split decision which took place at the King Abdullah Sports City Arena to retain 3 heavyweight titles. The other WBC belt is currently held by Tyson Fury if he doesn't follow through with retirement.  With this win Usyk also becomes the Ring Magazine heavyweight champion as well. 

One judge scored the fight at the  115-113 to Joshua, with the other two deciding 115-113 and 116-112 to Usyk.

The fight was close throughout but overall Usyk's movement proved too much again for Joshua.  Joshua had a great round in the 9th but Usky came back hard in the 10th and finished the fight strong to secure the victory.
