Round 5: Joshua lands vicious body shots

It’s a slightly more active start to the round, before Joshua lands a shot that referee Luis Pabon says is low and allows Usyk time to recover.

When the fight resumes Joshua lands another vicious right hand to the body, but Usyk comes back moments later with a nice counter.

The champion finds a home for a heavy left hand of his own, which Joshua takes well before the Brit lands a right hand in the dying moments that may have just seen him edge the round.
