Who won the Usyk fight

Answered By: Gabriel Brooks Date: created: Mar 12 2023

Oleksandr Usyk hit the canvas in round five claiming he had been hit with a low blow by Daniel Dubois Briton Daniel Dubois said he felt “cheated out of victory” after his heavyweight world-title challenge ended in defeat by Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk on a dramatic night in front of 40,000 boisterous fans in Poland.

Dubois, a huge underdog, floored the champion in a controversial fifth round. With Usyk wincing in pain on the canvas, the referee ruled the shot – which appeared to land on the belt line – a low blow. Usyk, 36, regained control and dropped Dubois, 25, with a flurry of shots in the eighth round at Tarczynski Arena, Wroclaw, before the referee halted the contest following another knockdown in the ninth.

“I didn’t think that was a low blow, I thought it landed,” Dubois said after the fight. His promoter Frank Warren agreed, calling it a “complete home decision” as he criticised referee Luis Pabon and said he planned to appeal. “I like Usyk, but he was not fit to go on and they gave him a couple of minutes to recover,” added Warren.

In fact, Usyk took three minutes and 45 seconds before declaring he was fit to resume – fighters are allowed five minutes when caught with a low blow, although Dubois was not deducted a point by the referee. Usyk, a former undisputed cruiserweight champion, responded well towards the end of the fifth round and reasserted his dominance in rounds seven and eight as he made a successful second defence of his WBA ‘Super’, IBF and WBO belts.

He also retained his undefeated record, winning a 21st professional bout, to keep hopes of a blockbuster fight with Tyson Fury alive. “I’m ready to fight Tyson Fury,” Usyk said. “I feel good. I am grateful for my team, my family, my children. I love you.

Is Tyson Fury still fighting AJ

Answered By: Rodrigo Rodriguez Date: created: Dec 13 2022

The new Netflix show following the lives of the Tysons comes out next week, ITV News Entertainment Reporter Rishi Davda reports Both Tyson and Paris Fury are high-energy individuals, big smiles and even bigger personalities – they are pretty perfect to be the stars of their own show.

  1. It turns out that Netflix has been thinking along the same lines and it’s releasing At Home With The Furys next week.
  2. It looks as glitzy and glamorous as some of the series that follow around Hollywood’s high flyers.
  3. Tyson and Paris, however, live in Morecambe Bay with their six children – soon to be seven.

As for whether or not it’s odd having cameras in the house all the time, Paris says she “didn’t find it strange.” The pair have been married for 15 years and most of their life has been “put out there anyway.” “It feels a bit more comfortable to know that what you are putting our there is the real us and not just what a newspaper or camera has caught a glimpse of.” I’ve seen a few of the episodes already and it is as candid as you would expect from Tyson, a heavyweight boxer who has never been shy and saying what’s on his mind.

As a long-serving mental health campaigner, he hopes he can help others by being open in the series. He reflects that his “struggle with alcohol, drugs and mental health has been well-documented over the years. I just want people to learn from my mistakes, my mental health journey. “Maybe they won’t have to go down the same path.” Tyson Fury and his wife Paris.

Credit: PA Tyson is undoubtedly a controversial figure. In 2016 he apologised after making homophobic, sexist and anti-Semitic remarks in an interview. When asked about whether he regrets his past mistakes, the undefeated fighter says that you have to acknowledge when you’ve done wrong.

  1. Time is a precious thing”, he says.
  2. If there is a time to say sorry or ask someone for forgiveness, now’s the time to do it.
  3. Don’t do it tomorrow.” Paris and Tyson have known each other since they were teenagers.
  4. They’ve risen through the ranks of celebrity side-by-side, but for their children, the selfies and autographs demanded of Dad are hard to get used to.

Tyson jokes: “They don’t want to go out with me anymore. If it’s a 10-minute job, it’ll take an hour.” While Paris says it’s “something they have to learn to grow with, it’s not a bad problem to have.” Tyson has “entered retirement” in years gone by, but it is always short-lived.

He’s training right now for his next fight against UFC champion Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia in October. As for the one fans want, the Anthony Joshua bout, it’s not on the cards unfortunately. “I don’t think you could fit enough 500 Euro notes in this room for AJ to fight me. He just doesn’t want to get absolutely smashed to pieces and I can’t say I blame him,” Tyson says.

At Home With The Furys is out on August 16 on Netflix, showing the softer side of boxing’s tough guy. Want a quick and expert briefing on the biggest news stories? Listen to our latest podcasts to find out What You Need To Know.

What round did Anthony win tonight

Answered By: Oscar Powell Date: created: Mar 05 2024

Heavyweight Anthony Joshua spectacularly knocked out Robert Helenius with one punch in round seven, after boxing tentatively in the first half of the fight at London’s O2 Arena. The 33-year-old Briton – who was jeered by fans during the bout – landed nothing of note until a huge right to the jaw ended Helenius’ night.

The win – Joshua’s first stoppage victory in two-and-a-half years – sets up a blockbuster fight with American Deontay Wilder in January. “It’s a fickle sport, you’ve got to be real about this industry and not get caught up. I’ve done my job tonight,” Joshua told BBC Radio 5 live. When asked in the ring about the potential fight with Wilder, Joshua joked: “My back’s gone, is there a doctor in here? I want to carry this heavyweight division to the top.” After the knockout, an emotionally charged and smiling Joshua climbed out of the ring, high-fived fans and shared a beer with Irish mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor.

Helenius needed oxygen after the heavy knockdown, but recovered and left the ring unassisted after congratulating Joshua. Anthony Joshua secured his first knockout since 2020

Did Joshua Franco win

Answered By: Steven Cooper Date: created: Jul 10 2023

Boxing: Kazuto Ioka defeats Franco to win WBA super flyweight title Japanese boxer Kazuto Ioka claimed the WBA super flyweight title via unanimous decision Saturday over Joshua Franco of the United States in their rematch. The bout at Tokyo’s Ota City General Gymnasium came after the World Boxing Association stripped Franco of his super flyweight belt for failing to make weight a day earlier. Japan’s Kazuto Ioka (R) throws a punch at Joshua Franco of the United States in the third round of their WBA super flyweight boxing match in Tokyo on June 24, 2023. (Kyodo) ==Kyodo Two judges scored the bout 116-112, while the other scored it 115-113.

  1. I’m glad I got the result,” said the 34-year-old Ioka.
  2. I knew I had to keep throwing punches.
  3. Franco was as strong as last time, with a wide range of punches.” Franco, 27, slowed a little after he suffered a cut above his right eye in the fifth round, while Ioka turned up the pressure with body shots and uppercuts.

Ioka improved his win-loss record to 30-2, including 15 wins by knockout, with one draw. Franco fell to 18-2-3 with eight KOs. On Dec.31, 2022, the two boxers battled to a 12-round draw in a two-belt unification fight, with Ioka fighting as WBO super flyweight champion.

The World Boxing Organization ordered Ioka to arrange a mandatory title defense against top-ranked countryman Junto Nakatani, but Ioka chose to vacate his belt in order to face Franco again. “Since that day (New Year’s Eve), so many things occurred, but I never give up,” Ioka said. “I became a champion again with the help of many people.” The Japan Boxing Commission revealed Wednesday that Ioka’s urine sample taken on the day of the New Year’s Eve fight showed traces of cannabis, adding that the amount of cannabis found was below the World Anti-Doping Agency’s detection limit.

Ioka’s Shisei Gym, reacting to the JBC’s move, said, “Ioka hasn’t taken or used any banned substance. We’ll prove his innocence. We wonder why they needed to announce that at this time.” Ioka is the only Japanese man who has held world boxing championships in four weight classes.

How long did Usyk get to recover

Answered By: Lawrence Henderson Date: created: Sep 27 2023

Beltline controversy – Dubois insisted he did not land a low blow. He maintained that should have been ruled a knockdown, if not a knockout given how long Usyk stayed down. He said: “I don’t think that it was a low blow. I’ve been cheated out of victory.

That was a win tonight. But I’ll come again.” Frank Warren, Dubois’ promoter, and his trainer Don Charles both agreed. “It hit on the waistband. That was not a low blow. How long did he get to recover? A couple of minutes? The governing body will have to look at that and order a rematch. Justice has to be done,” Warren said.

Charles was left lamenting: “How is that low?” He added: “I’ve usually got a lot to say but I’m speechless. Daniel Dubois has left the building. He’s distraught. He’s a young man aspiring to do great things in life, in boxing.” Dubois’ team say they will appeal what happened.

Warren later added: “That was a legitimate blow and should’ve been stopped. He got three minutes and 46 seconds’ recovery time, which was wrong. He got it wrong the referee and I still don’t understand, if it was a low blow, why he didn’t take any points off him? “I don’t think crooked, I think he just got it totally wrong.

As a result, it should be declared a no contest in the worst case, or a rematch ordered.” Usyk, for his part, is looking to move on.

Is Usyk a good boxer?

Why Oleksandr Usyk is the best heavyweight boxer American audiences don’t know is an Olympic gold medalist, former undisputed cruiserweight champion and current unified heavyweight champion who is widely recognized as one of the top five pound for pound fighters in the world.

  1. But with all of these accomplishments as part of boxing’s glamour division, he remains relatively anonymous to Americans.
  2. Why is that? MORE: For starters, Usyk doesn’t necessarily look the part.
  3. With a resurgent heavyweight division anchored by a trio of giants in Tyson Fury (6’9″), Anthony Joshua (6’6″) and Deontay Wilder (6’7″), Usyk’s six-foot-three-inch frame can easily get lost amongst the trees.

He’s not as statuesque as the physical specimen known as Joshua nor does he tower over the competition like Fury and Wilder. What he lacks in size he more than makes up for in ability and that’s the reason why the Ukrainian has managed to get his hands on the IBF, WBA, WBO, and Ring heavyweight titles by soundly defeating Anthony Joshua not once, but twice.

  • Looks aren’t everything in boxing and Usyk’s skill should be enough to get him over with fans in the United States, right?
  • Not necessarily.
  • As talented as Usyk is, he doesn’t have that notably quality that other heavyweights have: Power.

Wilder and Joshua made waves in the heavyweight division due to their penchant for knocking opponents unconscious. Wilder boasts a 97.67% knockout-to-win percentage while Joshua isn’t very far behind at 88%. Fury may not be as devastating of a knockout artist as either Wilder or Joshua at a still impressive 72.7%, but his bombastic personality more than makes up for it.

  1. Wilder, Joshua and Fury all have something unique about them that fans have been able to sink their teeth into.
  2. Joshua is a physical specimen with marketable looks that pair with his devastating power.
  3. Fury’s boistrous persona and tremendous backstory of overcoming his demons has thrust him into the spotlight.

Wilder’s life-altering power has made him a walking viral moment each and every time he steps into a boxing ring. Usyk doesn’t have any of those qualities. And being a really, really good fighter just doesn’t cut it in this day and age.

  1. But the biggest reason that Usyk has yet to resonate with American audiences is relatively simple.
  2. He’s a non-English speaking fighter who doesn’t come from a huge boxing country and he rarely fights in the United States.

Over the course of Usyk’s 20 fight career, he has fought in the United States a grand total of three times. Only one of those fights took place when Usyk was a heavyweight and that was against Chazz Witherspoon for his debut as a heavyweight in 2019. In order to make your mark on American audiences — who have their attention pulled in so many different directions by various other sports — you have to be visible.

  1. Usyk’s Ukranian counterpart, Vasiliy Lomachenko, has had 18 of his 20 professional bouts in the U.S.
  2. Not to mention that Top Rank prioritized turning the two-time Olympic gold medalist into a star for the promotion.
  3. Usyk has had no such push and isn’t tied to a major boxing promoter like Top Rank, Premier Boxing Champions or Matchroom Boxing.

MORE: Tyson Fury made it a point to make a mark on American audiences during the latter half of his career with five of his last seven fights being fought in the United States. Facing Wilder three times (once in Los Angeles and twice in Las Vegas) boosted his profile and now he’s one of the biggest global stars in the sport.

Anthony Joshua doesn’t quite have the profile or Fury or Wilder in the United States but his 2019 fight with Andy Ruiz at Madison Square Garden in New York City could have sent his marketability through the roof if he had won. As Usyk prepares to defend his unified heavyweight titles against Daniel Dubois in Poland, it’s unfortunate that the fight will end up flying under the radar.

His lack of visibility will continue to hurt his negotiating power with Tyson Fury in hopes of a potential undisputed heavyweight championship showdown but until Usyk finds a way to raise his profile stateside, he’s going to continue to be the best heavyweight that nobody knows.
