Anthony Joshua gets ready for his next fight with the best “coach”
Anthony Joshua needs all the help he can get in order to return from the painful defeat he siffered against Oleksandr Usyk and Floyd Mayweather seems ready to help him. This isn’t the first time ‘Money‘ has offered his advice to other famous fighter, he’s done it before with names such as Anthony Joshua before his fights against Tyson Fury. In a video that went completely viral, Joshua appears hitting the bag with Mayweather talking to him about technique. It’s only a few seconds long but that’s all that was needed in order to become viral on the internet. This video comes right around the same time Mayweather hinted at a possible return to boxing.
Even though he is still one of the greatest fighters of all time, Floyd is already far from the ‘killer’ he was during his prime. Getting in the ring against other great fighters like ‘Canelo’ Alvarez seems like a tough task to complete. While he gives Anthony Joshua his advice, it’s clear that the English heavyweight is paying close attention to everything ‘Money‘ has to say. After all, we are talking about the greatest defensive boxer of all time. Anthony Joshua does have power to strike but he’s always lacked that gracious speed that other heavyweights such as Fury or Ali displayed as champions. If Joshua manages to master this aspect of his boxing game, he can potentially become invicible.
Joshua falls to 5th place in the Heavyweight rankings.
In mor bad news for Anthony Joshua, the most recent World Boxing Asociation (WBA) rankings were released and he dropped a few spots. Usuk has the first spot and shares it with Trevor Bryan. Behind them is Daniel Dubois. After him, there is Michael Hunter. Robert Helenius. Hughie Fury (Tyson Fury’s cousin) took Anthony Joshua’s fourth spot behind the two reigning champions. Later this year, AJ will have his rematch against Usyk and the result will determine if he has any chance of going back to the top of the rankings. Floyd Mayweather’sadvice should serve him well for this upcoming fight for all the titles he already lost twice.
