Anthony Joshua was well beaten by Oleksandr Usyk in London last night, being completely outclassed by the Ukranian right from the very first bell.
It became clear early on in the fight that the Brit would be relying on his knockout power were he to have any chance of retaining his world titles. Despite this, he never really managed to land those big punches on his opponent.
In fact it was Usyk who came closest to landing the knockdown, with little doubt about the judge's decision once the final round had finished.
The result has certainly thrown the heavyweight division into flux, with the long anticipated bout between Joshua and Tyson Fury now looking further away than ever.
Eddie Hearn was certainly not in a good mood after the fight, with his prized asset having conceded his status as the top heavyweight in the game at the moment.
The promoter would also lose his temper with a fan as he made his way off the Tottenham Hotspur pitch. In a clip that is doing the rounds on social media, Hearn can be seen getting into an altercation with someone in the crowd who seemed to make a derogatory comment.

What did you say? What did you say?
You've s**t yourself now you little p***k.
He was in no mood to listen to that stuff last night.
Hearn has often been a subject of ridicule in the past, although he certainly should not have to put up with this sort of abuse from members of the crowd.
The fact that it came on the night that Joshua's career arc was thrown into flux certainly didn't help.
