The new champion Usyk, now 34, opened up on AJ’s ‘weird’ behavior prior to that showdown.

Speaking to Forbes, he said: “Of course, my team and I take note of it.

“They observe and analyze … I was surprised because he was kind of distracted, chewing on the mouthguard as he was.

“That’s why I thought it was weird.”

Joshua will bid to regain the unified heavyweight title from his Ukrainian champ early next year.

Speaking about his loss recently, AJ told IFL TV: “At times I wake up in the morning and fights and fights are on my mind. You sleep on it after the fight.

“You sleep on it after a fight and then what happens is that you wake up on it and I wake up on it and that’s the right thing because you have to use it as fuel for the day.

“I think about it a lot and not only on material things but here as well. I think about it a lot.

“It made me think a lot and I could move on but I just care, I really care. I don’t think, ‘Eh, that’s a loss’. I really care deeply. “
