Joshua travels around the US in search of a new coach. Been to one


Former two-time IBF, WBO and WBA heavyweight champion (over 90.7 kg) Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) is currently back in the United States in search of a new head coach.

writes Columnist Michael Benson, the 33-year-old British heavyweight is riding various gyms and trying out different coaches before returning to the ring in 2023.

Yesterday, December 4, AJ trained at Virgil Hunter’s gym. He was one of the coaches that Joshua visited last year before he decided to work with Robert Garcia before the rematch with Oleksandr Usyk. The fight ended in a competitive defeat to the Ukrainian, after which Anthony again decided to change the coach.

The puncher’s comeback is scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.

Recall that Hunter is the coach of former world boxing leader Andre Ward. He is currently coaching British prospect Joshua Buatsy.

In late November, Roy Jones spoke about why Joshua made the decision to leave Robert Garcia. And recently, WBC champion Fury proposed a fight to Joshua: he says, “hands in glue, then in glass – and we fight to the end.”
