Nigerian-born British boxer, Anthony Joshua, has congratulated Ukrainian, Oleksandr Usyk after losing to him in a heavyweight rematch held on Sunday.
Joshua used the opportunity to apologize for his unruly behaviour after the game.
Taking to his Facebook page, Joshua wrote;
“I wish Usyk continued success in your quest for greatness. You are a class act champ.
Yesterday I had to mentally take myself into a dark place to compete for the championship belts! I had two fights, one with Usyk and one with my emotions and both got the better of me.
I’ll be the first to admit, I let my self down. I acted out of pure passion and emotion and when not controlled it ain’t great.
I love this sport so so much and I’ll be better from this point on.
