Before the surprise knockout, Usman was coasting as he was ahead three rounds to one.

And reacting to the loss Usman stated he will surely bounce back from the setback.

“Champs mess up sometimes… but we bounce back and come with vengeance!!“ he wrote on Twitter.

And commenting on his win, Edwards said:“I can’t put into words. They all said I couldn’t do it. Look at me now! It doesn’t matter I was down, I come from the trenches, I’ve been down my whole life, look at me now! I did it for Birmingham, for the kids for the UK, my coaches. I told you I could do it.

“Beautiful, I told you I’d do it for you mum, I told you I’d change your life. This is my moment, two years out, the pandemic, now I’m champion of the world. I was born in Jamaica with nothing.”
