London (AFP)

Beaten by points and unanimously by the Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday, the now ex-British heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has already said he wants "110%" for revenge.

Joshua has a clause for a second fight against Usyk in order to try to recover his belts, as he had done in December 2019, after the first loss of his professional career, against Andy Ruiz Jr in June 2019.

Dispossessed of his WBA, WBO and IBF titles on the occasion of the second loss of his career, Joshua said at a press conference after the fight that he was "ready to return to training" for a revenge he wants to play " at 110% ".

"I'm not the type to be the head, it's a golden opportunity to be able to fight for the title of world heavyweight champion," continued Joshua, already looking to the next fight.

"Right away, I watched the fight to find out what I could have done better," said the 31-year-old boxer.

Usyk, on the other hand, has just spent three months of preparation away from his family and has won most of his victories outside of his country.

"I would love a rematch at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev," he enthused.

But Eddie Hearn, the promoter of this fight which was held in front of 60,000 spectators at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, suggested that a possible revenge would take place in Great Britain, next February or March.
