Joshua accepts Fury’s challenge – his coach Garcia is not happy


With a high degree of probability, on December 3 in Cardiff (Wales), British heavyweight Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) will try to become the world champion again – he will fight with the owner of the WBC belt compatriot Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs).

In the liability of the ex-unified champion Joshua, two defeats in a row to the Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk. For the second fight, he was prepared by American specialist Robert Garcia. He is not very happy that Anthony accepted Fury’s offer, but that’s all.
understands: “Look, this is not just another fight. This is the biggest event in British boxing. This fight had to take place sooner or later. Yes, I would prefer it to take place a little later. I would like to have 2-3 fights with Joshua first. But I understand everything. It’s a business.”

Garcia began to praise Anthony’s advisers: “He has a very wise management team. And when it comes to negotiations, they will help him make the right decision. I? I am not a businessman. I’m telling you, it would be better for me if Joshua first had 2-3 fights, and only then agreed to something huge. The same thing happened with the rematch with Usyk. He accepted an immediate fight instead of having several intermediate fights first. Why is that? Well, he loves challenges…

Garcia shared his opinion about the fight with Fury: “It will not be easy. Is it really possible to beat him? Yes, how. I haven’t talked to Joshua about having a training camp in the US yet, but I’ve pitched the idea to his management team. They liked the idea. But it’s up to Joshua. It would do him good to train with Jesse Rodriguez, Jose Ramirez and the young talented guys that I lead. After all, in training there is also rivalry. And then the fighters push each other, help to reach a new level. I think it would work.”

Are you aware that Joshua is already preparing for the fight with Fury? We have a photo of him sparring. Meanwhile, Fury’s promoter claims that everything is 90% ready. I’m afraid to be!
