This comes as the British heavyweight lost for only the second time in his career, with Usyk winning via a unanimous points decision.

This reliable online news platform had reported that Anthony Joshua was hospitalized following his loss to his opponent.

Anthony Joshua was taken to the hospital for assessment following his loss to Usyk.

The British-Nigerian boxer is suspected to have suffered eye socket damage.

Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has revealed that he could not see properly after the ninth round.

By the 10th round, ‘AJ’ was carrying a black and swollen eye, as Usyk continued to batter him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Ukrainian almost knocked him down in the final seconds but won via unanimous decision 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113.

“He will go to hospital. I don’t know if he has broken his eye socket, it doesn’t look great.

“He said he couldn’t see after the ninth round, obviously he was getting tagged a lot as well.

“His power looked like it had left him, the tank was empty and it was only heart which kept him on his feet in the 12th round,” Hearn had said.

Hearn, speaking to talkSPORT, said Joshua was still “frustrated, disappointed and gutted” at what transpired on September 25.

He also claimed Joshua is “fixated” with the mistakes he made against Usyk.

“I think AJ is humble in defeat, he feels a responsibility to act like that – it couldn’t be further away from reality. Actually, I’d like him to lose some of that humbleness sometimes.

“But he’s sulking. That’s the reality – I’ve been with him a couple of times and he’s fixated with the mistakes he made. He’s frustrated, he’s disappointed, he’s gutted. All he can think about is how he can improve,” Hearn said.
