British-Nigerian Heavyweight boxer, Anthony Joshua has admitted that he still thinks about his loss to Oleksandr Usyk everyday.
In an interview with iFL TV, Anthony Joshua admitted that he is still not over his loss to Usyk because it’s the first thing on his mind when he wakes up in the morning.
Earlier in September, Joshua was outclassed by Usyk’s superb footwork and technical skills on a frustrating night in North London.
The former WBO, WBA, IBF, and IBO champion opted to take an immediate rematch with the newly-crowned king, despite some fans and pundits telling him he has little chance of turning things around.
He stated as follows in the interview;
“A lot of times I wake up in the morning and the fight and fighting is on my mind. After the fight, you sleep on it.
You sleep on it after the fight and then what happens is you wake up on it and I’m waking up on it and it’s the right thing because you’ve got to use it as fuel for the day.
I think about it a lot and not just on a physical thing but up here as well. I think about it a lot.
That one made me think a lot and I could go on but I just care, I actually care. I don’t think, ‘eh, it’s a loss’. I actually deeply care.”
Anthony Joshua has also vowed to apply destructive power to reclaim his titles next year.
“I have one thing in my mind, that’s war, that’s murder, that’s war, let’s go out there and hurt the guy.’
I’m done with f***ing losing, I’m done with trying to learn the sweet science,’ AJ said in October.
The referee might get thrown on the floor in the next fight because this is war. It’s just straight war, I’m annoyed. I’m boiling up even speaking about it – it’s that passion to win.” Anthony Joshua stated.
Anthony Joshua lost his heavyweight titles to Usky last month by unanimous decision and a rematch has been agreed between both boxers but a date for the fight had not been decided yet.
