You’re Going To See A Different Anthony Joshua In Rematch With Usyk



Anthony Joshua lost his world titles to Oleksandr Usyk

The boxing rumour mill was in full force following Anthony Joshua’s trip to the States. I was out there with AJ in what was a mixture of a holiday and a little bit of training as well. I wouldn’t look too deeply into the trip other than this is just part of the preparation to become a three-time world champion.

All that is in AJ’s head is beating Oleksandr Usyk in a rematch. He knows he has to improve. He knows he has to come in with a better gameplan.

He spoke with a number of trainers and visited a number of gyms, not as an interview process, but as an experience. To look at different set-ups, speak to great minds about the fight and put a slightly different perspective on things.

It was nice for AJ to move around in public in the US without the pressure of hundreds of photographs and signatures, of which he always gladly gives. I wonder whether his training camp will take place in the States for this fight?

You can see the defeat is still hurting him, which quite frankly is great to see. It shows you how much he wants it. There are many people that, following a defeat like that, would bury their head in the sand, go on holiday, lose focus and spend their time eating and drinking. That’s not the case with AJ.

You’re going to see a different Anthony Joshua in the rematch, I’m sure of that. We’ll talk together as a team for how preparation should look for what will be a crunch clash next spring.
