Mike Tyson says Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk could never beat him in his prime

On Saturday, Usyk had an impressive performance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, winning the IBF, WBO and WBA heavyweight titles after beating Joshua via a unanimous decision from the judges.

Tyson, boxing’s youngest heavyweight champion, was not impressed with what he saw from the two, however.

Mike Tyson wrote the following after the fight:

He follows in the footsteps of Evander Holyfield and David Haye by becoming just the third man to win world titles at cruiserweight and heavyweight.

Joshua however will have the opportunity to reclaim his titles thanks to a rematch clause, with promoter Eddie Hearn suggesting a second fight could take place in February or March next year.

‘I never tend to look at the opponent. I just tend to look at myself and realise where I went wrong,’ Joshua said.
