    Joshua admits ‘I let myself down’ with post-fight antics

    SAUDI ARABIA (AFP) – Anthony Joshua has admitted “I let myself down” after the British heavyweight’s antics following his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk in their world-title showdown in Saudi Arabia.

    Joshua hurled two of Usyk’s belts to the floor and stormed out of the ring in a fit of pique in Jeddah, then returned moments later to deliver a rambling speech peppered with expletives.

    Writing on Twitter, Joshua hailed Usyk as “a class act”, adding, “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 myself down. I acted out of pure passion and emotion and when not controlled it ain’t great.”
