Has Joshua decided on a new coach? Ex-sparring in shock


There is more and more talk that the next coach of the former unified British heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) will be American boxing legend Roy Jones Jr.

Former sparring partner of Joshua American Rydell Booker (26-6-1, 13 KOs)
thinks this decision is unfortunate: “Anthony is rumored to be working with Roy. I just don’t see how it could even work. And to be honest, I don’t think Jones is a good coach or teacher. He won in his time, because he was gifted by nature more than anyone else. And such people rarely have something to teach others.”

Booker believes that Joshua should have looked for a coach elsewhere: “I’m not saying that I am some kind of boxing guru that I know absolutely everything. But I was trained by one of the best of all time – Emanuel Steward himself. So, his system suited absolutely everyone: Lennox Lewis, Oscar De La Hoya, Tommy Hearns. She even fit Tyson Fury. After all, Sugar Hill successfully gave him the style of a boxing gym The Cronk. And this style would suit Joshua very much, because he is hefty, long and powerful.

So who will be Joshua’s new coach? The expert shared his thoughts. Meanwhile, Roy asks: “Don’t let Usyk and Fury disrupt the fight,” and also shared his opinion on the Lomachenko vs. Haney fight.
