Oleksandr Usyk claimed a stunning split-decision victory over Anthony Joshua to retain his WBA, WBO and IBF belts, while adding the Ring Magazine title to his collection.

A much-improved Joshua was given the nod on one of the judges’ scorecards, taking it 115-113.

A masterful Usyk, who will surely fight WBC champion Tyson Fury next, was handed it by the remaining judges 115-113 and 116-112.

Anthony Joshua gave a good showing of himself in the ring against Oleksandr Usyk but many feel he let himself down following the announcement of the decision.
