The heavyweight fight of this generation was Fury and Joshua and we will never see it. Both in prime and just the dynamic of it would have been interesting to see. Politics again ruins it. 

Behave what's your time frame regards generation...,mmh.

We will see it mate probably a trilogy belts are meaningless. Wilder v fury in a fortnight winner will fight usyk(if AJ is injured) next summer I think we'll see the first fight In Saudi

To me his mentality has never been right to be a consistently good/successful boxer. Heavyweights gone by and even Fury just now are hard cunts, that can stand toe to toe and give it. Never really seen that with AJ tbh. 

The big lumbering can you stand still till i knock you out,has been found out.
Should just be happy he never had to face the likes of Tyson,and how many times he would cross himself.

Nothing to do with politics. Joshua got  a doing from a Cruiserweight.

Previous to that it was a fat Mexican. 
Joshua ain’t a world class boxer.

A marketing dream but limited boxer.

Lacks belief and bottle too.

I loved AJ coming through. Went and saw him smash Charles Martin and really believed the hype. 
 

But in the last two years he’s just been exposed for being a robotic meathead with no real boxing ability. 
 

Hearn will be raging but it’s his own doing, he’s made him so boring and now he just doesn’t seem arsed. As others have said he’s not even a knockout boxer anymore. 
 

Wild.

Uysk's class shone through tonight, thought it was a cracking performance. 

If he had that explosive power that a Haye had when he moved up from Cruiserweight, I think he'd even have stopped Joshua early. 

I think a rematch goes pretty much the same way. Joshua would be better off regrouping and either fighting the loser of the Fury/Wilder fight or another 'grudge' match with Whyte.

I called him a bum earlier I take that back. I was just pissed off with him.  

Yeah I agree, I think I was just shocked with his performance tonight. Never had Usyk troubled which is criminal. 

I do think he's lost his way though. 

Plus he's been sanitised so much he must be bored stiff.

According to Hearn he was winning the fight on the scorecards up until the championship rounds. 

That's a disgrace in its self

I had it at a push 4-4 but wouldnt have been surprised if it was 5-3 Usyk, AJ winning at that point is mindboggling.

Joshua for ages has been trying to lose bulk and outbox his opponents. The problem is he’s never been a top boxer, his rise to fame was as a result of his sheer size, power and aggression. He used to just blow people away (including some very good fighters).

He needs to get back to that approach as it’s his only chance of being successful. He also needs to ditch McCracken.

AJ winning at any point in that fight is why boxing is a joke. He wasn’t ahead once in that fight and after round 8 looked absolutely terrified that Usyk looked like he’d just started. 
 

He has to be finished after that, he doesn’t deserve to win them back or fight anyone else.

Rematch will go the same way. Usyk is levels above AJ and could have ended that fight last night if he wanted to but was happy to outbox him over 12 rounds instead.

Not buying the rushed to hospital excuse from Hearn either. AJ fucking off to his dressing room after the scores were read out was classless as fuck.

Not even sure if he had to be coaxed by his corner to stand up for the result.
It's just a shame you eventually have to face boxers who fight back.
