Usyk beats Joshua to become the unified heavyweight champion

Joins Evander Holyfield and David Haye in an exclusive list

Oleksandr Usyk is now the unified heavyweight champion after beating Anthony Joshua on Sunday.

The Ukrainian was too good for the English boxer who was fighting in front of his home fans.

The 67,000 fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium were not enough to make the fight swing Joshua’s way.

As Usyk dominated from the first bell, outclassing Joshua with a sublime performance.

In the end, the judges scored Usyk 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113 to reward the Ukrainian who became just the third fighter after Evander Holyfield and David Haye to win world titles at cruiserweight and heavyweight.
