Any new coach Joshua will look good – Garcia called the reason


American coach Robert Garcia, who was refused cooperation by British heavyweight Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) after the defeat in the rematch to Oleksandr Usyk, is sure that his successor will get a lot of praise at first, because in the next fights Joshua due to the level opposition will be on top.

“It doesn’t really matter who Joshua’s new trainer is when he gets back, because they’re going to put him through two or three easy fights first where he can look good,” Robert said. – In this situation, any coach will show himself from the favorable side. Even Virgil Hunter, even Angel Hernandez, even Derrick James. He will just knock out the next opponent and look good. And with him, the one who will be in his corner.

“That’s the big difference,” Garcia said. – When I came to his team, we were waiting for a fight against Usyk, and we still performed better than anyone expected. Now the opponent will not be close to Usyk. It will be much easier opponents that he will destroy, after which conversations will begin like: “Oh, trees, this is the difference, he looks so much better.” That’s true, but don’t forget to consider the level of opposition.”
