Anthony Joshua could have a new trainer in the form of Canelo Alvarez head coach Eddy Reynoso.
Joshua is coming off a unanimous decision defeat to Oleksandr Usyk back in September to lose his heavyweight titles.
A rematch clause has since been triggered with the sequel set to take place sometime early next year.
A big narrative following Joshua’s comprehensive defeat to Usyk was that he didn’t have any real gameplan whatsoever and was in dire need of a new trainer.
It definitely looks like “AJ” agrees as Reynoso recently revealed that he was in talks with Joshua and promoter Eddie Hearn over training the former champion ahead of the rematch.
Reynoso also made a point on how Joshua doesn’t make full use of his physical qualities — something he would look to fix (via Michael Benson).
“Canelo Alvarez’s trainer Eddy Reynoso has revealed he’s held further talks with Anthony Joshua and Eddie Hearn about potentially training AJ for the Oleksandr Usyk rematch. Reynoso said: ‘He has many physical qualities and I think he does not take advantage of them.'”
While most boxing observers may have agreed that the chances of Joshua winning in a rematch with Usyk were unlikely, things will certainly change if Reynoso does end up training the Briton.
Do you think this is the best move for Joshua?
