Sky Sports forced to apologise after Anthony Joshua drops FIVE F-bombs in emotional speech after Oleksandr Usyk defeat | The Sun

SKY SPORTS were forced to apologise after Anthony Joshua dropped FIVE F-bombs in an emotional rant following his second consecutive loss to Oleksandr Usyk.

The two-time former world heavyweight champion was beaten by split decision, and was clearly unhappy with the loss.

Joshua, 32, performed much better than he did in his first fight with Usyk, 35, but was still outclassed by the Ukrainian.

After the result was announced, AJ lost his head and threw two of Usyk's belts out of the ring.

Joshua then stormed out of the ring, but later returned to the squared circle to shake hands with his opponent.

But as they talked in the ring, AJ said: "I don't care about being strong, I have that skill.

"Being strong doesn't win boxing. Skills win boxing.

"You're not strong. How did you beat me? How? Because of skill.

Then the Brit grabbed hold of a mic to deliver an impassioned speech to the crowd, which forced Sky Sports commentator Adam Smith into making a number of apologies for the X-rated language.

Joshua said: "Usyk is one hell of a f***ing fighter, let's give him a round of applause.

"Sorry guys, look, if you knew my story you'd understand the passion.

"I ain't no f***ing amateur boxer from five-years-old, I wasn't an elite prospect from youth, bro, I was going to jail.

"I seen some youths in Reading jail, I got bail and I started training my a*** off.

"Because if I got sentenced I wouldn't be able to fight. I bust my case, my cousin, where's he at? G14.

"I'm stealing this Usyk, I'm sorry but it's because of the f***ing passion we've put into this s***, man.

"Guys I'm telling you, this guy to beat me tonight, maybe I could have done better but it shows the levels of hard work he must have put in.

"So please give him a round of applause as our heavyweight champion of the world.

"I'm not a 12 round fighter? Look at me, I'm a new breed of heavyweight, all them heavyweights; Mike Tyson, Sonny Liston, Jack Dempsey – they say 'he doesn't throw combinations like Rocky Marciano,' because I'm not f***ing 14-stone, that's why, I'm 18-stone I'm heavy.

"It's hard work, this guy here is a phenomenal talent, we're going to cheer for him three times. Well how many belts have you got now bro, five?

"As I said, I was studying Ukraine and all of the champions that have come from your amazing country, I've never been there but at the same time what's happening there is not nice.
