American mentor Robert Garcia said that Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) was a little ashamed of his performance after the rematch with Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).
“You all remember how the second fight ended. Anthony grabbed the microphone and everything. Why did he do it? I think he was filled with disappointment. It is very hard to accept defeat when you feel that victory was so close. That you just missed it. I think he was a little embarrassed by his performance. In any case, his post-match reaction did not resemble the way fighters usually deal with their failures. You rarely see this.
I wasn’t the only one who said after the fight that Joshua was a little disappointed. Not the only one who suggested that he was a little ashamed of his performance,” said Garcia, who prepared Anthony for this fight.
