Anthony Joshua says he is “a different animal, not a sulker” and “will bounce back” from losing his world heavyweight titles to Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua said he “couldn’t see in round nine” after an eye injury sustained in Saturday’s 12-round fight with the Ukrainian at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

His promoter Eddie Hearn suggested his fighter may have suffered a broken eye socket.

“I can’t go back and sulk – that’s wasting time,” Joshua, 31, said.

Asked after the fight about what went wrong, the defeated Briton said: “I couldn’t see in the ninth round, couldn’t see anything really because my eye was shut.
