Shocking Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua 2 scorecards reveal one judge horrendously scored first THREE rounds for Brit
THE shocking scorecards for Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk have been revealed.
Joshua, 32, suffered a split-decision defeat to the former undisputed cruiserweight champion in their Saudi rematch on Saturday night.
But it would’ve been a clean sweep for the undefeated Ukranian had judge Glenn Feldman not turned in an outrageous scorecard.
The American stunningly scored the fight 115-113 in favour of Joshua – giving him the first THREE rounds despite the fact he clearly lost them.
Boxing fans were quick to comment on Feldman’s crazy card, with one saying: “In what universe does he give AJ round 12? What?!”
Another said: “Feldman had Joshua up 5-1 after 6. That’s a disgrace.”
And another said: “Poor card to have AJ winning 115-113.”
One remarked: “That’s not even close to be a split decision. Don’t let him judge again please.”
Another chimed in: “Feldman must be high.”
A dazed and heartbroken Joshua went on a stunning x-rated rant after his second successive defeat to slick southpaw Usyk.
And he opened up on his fiery antics in the post-fight press conference, saying: “When you’re trying to do things from the heart and everyone is just not understanding.
“It was just from the heart. I was mad at myself. Not anyone else just myself.
“So I thought, I’ve got to get out of here because I’m mad. Like anyone, when you’re angry, you might do stupid things.
“I was mad and then I realised, ‘Oh s**t, this is sport. Let me do the right thing and come back.’
“I just spoke from my heart. It’s been so tough. You see AJ holding it together, yeah, and I’m a hustler so I try to put things together.
“Try to work hard and put things together and make sure my team’s good.
“But it comes at a cost, a big cost. It’ll never break me, but it takes real strength for it not to break me. And tonight, there’s a little crack in the armour when I took a loss.
“And I think you just saw me just upset. And with the speech, I was just speaking about where I come from. I was on the roads, really.
“And I made a transition to boxing that really changed my life and brought me closer to God and brought me closer to meeting so many people.
“And I just kind of laid it all on the line with my speech. But let’s not forget the champ Oleksandr Usyk. He put on a phenomenal performance as well. So credit to him.
“I can’t remember what I said in the ring because it was just so passionate, but I just want to say thank you to him for taking part in a great historical fight as well. It takes two to tango. I was just so upset.”
