    Usyk bless. I cant believe the shit that was talked about this dude. Thought AJ’s power would get to him but never once doubted he could hang with the best HWs.

    Where is Usyk's porous defense? I told you guys you have to over reach to hit Usyk clean. Because he is never a stationary target. That's why he has never EVER been hurt in his career. Joshua was hitting him tonight with reaching arm punches and was doing a good job actually in rounds 5 and 6 but lacks the engine and experience to do it all night long. Incredibly hard to outpoint such a busy active boxer too.

    I have a suggestion for people who doubted Usyk before this fight. Go back and watch his fights in ×0.5 speed because he is so fast you can miss greatness. (this last sentence should have a Usyk gif but can't put them from my phone)

    I expected Usyk to get KO'd if this is the eat crow thread. I'm happy to be wrong because Usyk is a good guy.

    Usyk at +220 was a fucking steal. Great performance. I think he broke AJ's face too.

    I don't rate Joshua highly, because he fought to the death with 40 year old Wladimir's corpse, but I doubted Usyk too.

    I always said Usyk was great but wouldn't be able to compete agains the giants.

    Having said that, I always thought beating Joshia was a possibility as he is the weakest of the 3 big HW's.

    I still think he can't beat Fury but that's not a knock against him, he simply is meant to fight in a different weightclass.

    If he beats Fury though... damn

    Missed it but was rooting for Usyk.

    Happy to see he got the win.

    I never thought Usyk couldn't make it at HW if a fat ass like Ruiz, who is shorter than him can.

    I didn't know who would win vs him and AJ cause of AJ's chin, also vs a mental midget like Wilder, I think Usyk can also win. I think fury is a complete nightmare for him tho.

    I wanted AJ to beat him though, so it could set up a super match of AJ vs Fury in the UK. Would have been insane crowd. Also props to UK for letting 70k at the Arena tonight.

    Love Usyk tho

    I'll eat humble pie!
    Even though I'm a Usyk fan i did say I don't think he could handle HW after watching his Chisora fight. I still think Fury would do Usyk and to be honest I think Whyte would beat Usyk too if he used the same tactics as Chisora, I just don't understand why AJ didn't adopt that approach tonight. Instead AJ tried to outbox a world class master boxer ha. If your a sprinter you don't challenger a marathon runner to a long distance race...Well done Usyk.

    Usyk is this generation's Holyfield.

    It had it 115-113 for Usyk, but the rounds Usyk won were clearer than the ones AJ did. I gave the closer rounds to AJ.

    I feel for 115-113 you have to give Joshua a round he clearly lost.

    I had it 117-111 Usyk. Joshua did not react well to getting hit tonight. If Fury beats Wilder again (which he should), I think Fury gets by the smaller Usyk and Wilder KO’s Joshua early when those fights get made.
