Oshoala consoles, charges Anthony Joshua to stage a comeback

Barcelona striker Asisat Oshoala has reacted to Anthony Joshua’s disappointing loss to Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Anthony Joshua , AJ, attempted to recapture the unified heavyweight titles he lost to the Ukrainian boxer last year.

Oshoala had backed compatriot Joshua to reclaim the heavyweight titles from Usyk.

And the five-time African player of the year could not hide her disappointment at the outcome of the clash billed as the Rage on the Red Sea.

Although AJ displayed the resilient Nigerian spirit, Oshoala is unhappy that the 32-year-old did not knock out his Ukrainian foe.

The former Arsenal forward has, however, charged AJ not to give up but to stage a comeback.

Oshoala wrote on Twitter: “I felt AJ had like two occasions where he could’ve gone in for a KO but he was too tired.

“Omo na we wey no too understand the sport Dey analyze pass. Anyway, we are coming back; NAIJA FOR LIFE STILL @anthonyjoshua.”
