Joshua’s new trainer on Usyk

Anthony Joshua’s new trainer is the first to admit his man’s preparation has been far from perfect.

No-nonsense Robert Garcia replaced Team GB mastermind Robert McCracken for AJ’s must-win world heavyweight title rematch against Oleksandr Usyk tomorrow night.

Garcia said: “The whole boxing world knows he can’t outbox Usyk. So we have to put smart pressure on him.

“Usyk is a very talented fighter, his combinations, he has a great jab, a great straight-right hand, right hands to the body, stuff like that.

“Instead of training to box, we have to train for a fight going forward. But we are also not going in to become a brawler, we have to do it smart.”
