Fans are all saying the same thing as adopted boxing anthem Sweet Caroline is NOT played before Usyk vs Joshua
BOXING fans couldn’t believe their ears as Sweet Caroline WASN’T played before Anthony Joshua’s showdown with Oleksandr Usyk.
The Brit is on a heavyweight title revenge mission against the Ukrainian champ on Saturday night.
With the fight taking place in Saudi Arabia rather than on home shores Neil Diamond’s adopted boxing anthem did not blare out of the speakers before the first bell.
And it was music to the ears of fight fans everywhere.
One wrote: “None of that Sweet Caroline nonsense at least.”
Another added: “That’s more like it….No cheese, no Sweet Caroline, short ring walks and straight to business!!
While one relieved fan said: “Well at least they didn’t play Sweet Caroline.”
One simply stated: “Sweet Caroline – worst song ever made.”
However others weren’t enjoying the rather sedate atmosphere ringside on Jeddah watch than a booze Wembley.
One wrote: “No Sweet Caroline… no beer throwing… no punch ups in the crowd. What kind of s*** is this!!!”
