Anthony Joshua apparently thought he had done enough to beat Oleksandr Usyk because he absolutely lost his mind after the fight.
On Saturday, Joshua suffered a split decision loss against Usyk and proceeded to have a temper tantrum in the ring.
Even though most experts felt Usyk had won, Joshua decided to throw Usyk’s championship belts to the ground before storming out of the ring after the fight.

Joshua would later return and give a bizarre speech about the war in Ukraine while a bewildered Usyk looked on.

Anthony Joshua’s speech was just weird man
AJ- ‘I don’t know what’s happening in your country, but it ain’t nice’

Boxing fans immediately mocked Joshua over his bizarre postfight behavior.
It hurts to see Anthony Joshua trying to cope in the ring with that speech.

It was going so well until Anthony Joshua got on the mic, he’s lost it mentally someone take him off ring this is hard to look at. Good fight against Usyk but AJ needs to sit down. pic.twitter.com/6BdqUoXnz0
