 Joshua's close friend:

A close friend of British boxer Anthony Joshua Michael Jerman gave an interview totalkSport in which he said that Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk should have lost the fight. According to him, in the fifth round, the referee should have counted him down.

In the fifth round, Joshua hit Usyk with a low blow, although Jermen does not agree with this. He believes that the blow was legitimate.

“I didn't have to watch the last three rounds because Usyk won them confidently. So maybe 115-113 was the correct score. Usyk was given 25 seconds to recover – and that was a lot. But the blow was clearly on the belt. If you watch it in slow motion, you can see where the glove lands. It was an accurate hit. Usyk should have been given a knockdown countdown. The referee who gave the fight to Usyk 115-113 would have to bet Joshua 114-113. Then Anthony would have won by split decision, – Jermaine said.
