New world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk insists he is not yet contemplating a potential rematch with Anthony Joshua and says he was told by his corner not to push for a knockout in Saturday’s one-sided title clash. Usyk produced a sublime performance in front of 66,267 stunned fans at an atmospheric Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to end Joshua’s second title reign, claiming the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts and following Evander Holyfield and David Haye as only the third man ever to win world titles at both cruiserweight and heavyweight. It was a thoroughly deserved unanimous decision victory for the skilled southpaw, who wrecked Joshua’s hopes of finally meeting rival Tyson Fury - who faces Deontay Wilder for the third time in Las Vegas on October 9 - in a lucrative all-British unification mega fight.
