The Watford-born boxer lost his heavyweight titles after losing via a unanimous decision in his fight against the Ukrainian

Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi has reacted to the loss of British-Nigerian boxer Anthony Joshua in his fight against Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua was the favourite heading into the clash, which took place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. However, he had no answers to Usyk’s technical skills and footwork, losing on all the three Judges scorecards.

It could have been worse for Joshua as he was on the ropes in the final seconds of the 12th round but was saved by the bell.

And following the encounter, Ndidi took to his Instagram to react to the fight. The Leicester City man did not say much but showed his support by posting a picture of the battered boxer on his Instagram stories.

Joshua has already stated his intention to initiate the rematch clause, which could see him fight the Ukrainian again in February next year.
