The tendril explained why did not knock out Joshua to 'bloodthirsty' fans

Alexander noted that he did not want to harm his opponent's health.

Ukrainian boxer Alexander Usik held a press conference after returning to Kiev with championship belts, which he took away from Briton Anthony Joshua in London, reports with reference to TSN.

The 34-year-old Ukrainian won by unanimous decision. In the last round, he pinched the British champion at the ropes and was close to a knockout, but before the final bell he felt sorry for his opponent. During a conversation with journalists, Alexander explained why he did this.

& # 171; Why are you so bloodthirsty? Such questions are asked. There is a victory, everything is fine. Why is it necessary for a person to fall. He has relatives and friends, a mother and a father. This is a big chunk of health in the negative if a person falls and loses consciousness. I'm not for that. And not that he would get up and forget what day it is. There was no knockout & # 8212; and thank God. We will be healthier & # 187;, & # 8212; Usyk said.

  • Usik defeated Joshua by unanimous decision & # 8212; & nbsp; 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113 & nbsp; and won & nbsp; IBF, WBO, WBA and IBO heavyweight titles.
  • Alexander became world champion in the second & nbsp; for himself weight category. Previously, he collected all four prestigious belts in the cruiserway.
  • For 34-year-old Usik, this was the 19th professional fight. He has 19 victories.
  • The 31-year-old Joshua has 26 fights. The Briton won & nbsp; 24 victories and suffered 2 defeats
