Usyk defeated Joshua and took away the championship belt
Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk sensationally defeated world multi-weight champion Anthony Joshua. Thus, the Ukrainian has taken away from him the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts. By the unanimous decision of the judges Oleksandr Usyk was declared the winner of the fight. The fight lasted 12 rounds and the Ukrainian won 116-112, 117-114, 115-113.
As Joshua has a right to a rematch, the Ukrainian side offered to hold it in Kyiv at NSC Olimpiyskiy, but the British were skeptical about the idea.
According to Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, it is almost impossible to hold the fight in Kyiv. An international location will be chosen for it. It is not ruled out that it will be the UK again.
How voting went in the German elections
Voting for new members of Bundestag took place in Germany. A total of 47 parties were allowed to participate in the elections, which is a record for the country.
More than 60,000 polling stations have opened across the country. In addition, voters could cast their votes by post.
At the same time, the vote of her potential successor in office, Armin Laschet, could be invalidated. The politician had folded his ballot incorrectly so that everyone could see who he had voted. Such an act by Laschet could have been qualified as a violation of the secrecy of the vote. However, according to a federal officer, the incident had no impact on the election.
On the morning of the next day in Germany votes were counted in all 299 constituencies. The overall voter turnout was 76.6%. Victory, as exit polls had earlier indicated, was won by the Social Democratic Party.
