The fight between British professional boxer and Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk has triggered comments from former British heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte after the bout.

Whyte said Joshua was too “gun-shy” after he lost his world titles to Oleksandr Usyk.

Whyte’s comments came after the Ukrainian won by unanimous decision with the judges scoring the heavyweight bout 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113.

Going memory lane, Whyte who was defeated by Joshua in 2015, was also tagged too negative.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live Whyte said, “I said if Joshua tried to box he was always going to lose.”

“If he had come out and bullied him and pushed the pace and let his hands go he could have even knocked him out in the first round.

“But he came out and was being too negative. He seemed like a gun-shy fighter. You are the bigger man – have a go.

“I don’t know, he lacked ambition in the ring there tonight.”
