Robert Garcia May Part Ways With Anthony Joshua, But Still Advises To Train In U.S.
Joshua is winless in his last two fights against Oleksandr Usyk.
Veteran trainer Robert Garcia might no longer be supervising Anthony Joshua, but has some important pieces of advice for the former champ.
AJ is again on a hunt for a new trainer after coming short against Oleksandr Usyk for the second time in a row. Joshua had a much better outing the second time around, but it wasn’t enough as Usyk stood firm and walked away with the belts.
After a disappointing display in the first encounter, Joshua decided to part ways with longtime trainer Robert McCracken. The Brit got Garcia on board for the rematch, but had to face the same fate again.
Joshua is currently enjoying his time off the ring and plans to return to the gym in January next year. AJ has indicated that he might have a new face in his corner.
Garcia has spoken for the first time about the possible change of team. And it seems like he has no problem with this decision.
“I don’t know why, but he has his management team, and they decided that,” Garcia said.
“I respect him, but what I respect the most is that he called me beforehand to tell me that he would be in the United States visiting other trainers.”
“Even if he doesn’t train with me, I would like him to come to train in the United States,” Garcia explains.
“This is where he needs to have a camp, to change his routine, to leave his comfort zone, where he will get more responsibility. That’s what I recommended to them.”
