What did you make of the fight?

"I think it was a great fight and both guys stepped it up from last time. I was actually impressed with Joshua’s adjustments for this fight. I didn’t think he was going to be able to put up such a good performance against Usyk but he proved me and I’m sure a lot of other people wrong. Usyk really had to dig deep and he once again showed that he’s a brilliant fighter but we also saw that no one is untouchable.

What next for Anthony Joshua?

"I think it makes a lot of sense for me and Joshua to fight each other. People in the UK know me for giving Fury one of the toughest fights in his career and I get a lot of support from over there. I’m always training and trying to get better and I can’t wait to go over to the UK and earn my right for another shot at Fury by beating Anthony Joshua."

What did you make of Anthony Joshua’s post-fight antics?

"It was hard to watch [Joshua post-fight] to be honest. I think it’s a culmination of pressure on him and I think that it’s affecting him a lot mentally. He did a similar thing when he lost to Ruiz and took the mic from him. It’s like he’s so used to being the champion, so it’s hard when he’s not that anymore."
