Boxing News: “Various trainers are used by different sportsmen. However, we kept everything in-house. We can perform and practise even when one person is absent, and we can still put together a good training camp “| On September 25, Anthony Joshua will face Oleksandr Usyk in a boxing match.

Anthony Joshua has studied how multiple trainers influenced Mike Tyson’s career, but claims his bond with Rob McCracken is stronger than ever.

Joshua’s training camp for the fight against Oleksandr Usyk began without his long-time head trainer McCracken, who was in Tokyo for the Olympics as Team GB Director of Performance.

When Joshua fights Usyk on September 25 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the IBF, WBA, and WBO heavyweight titles will be on the line.

“Definitely,” Joshua said Sky Sports about missing McCracken during his vacation. The gaffer is Rob. Is it better to have the gaffer present or not? His presence is palpable.

“However, it worked out in the end because we have a great team.”

“I’m a big fan of old-school training, which is why Manny Pacquiao had Freddie Roach. [With Mike Tyson] Kevin Rooney, Teddy Atlas, and Cus D’Amato.

“Athletes switch trainers on a regular basis.

“However, we maintained everything in-house.” We can perform and train even when one person is absent, and we can still put together a terrific training camp.”

Following his upset loss to Andy Ruiz Jr, Joshua added Angel Fernandez and Joby Clayton to his training roster, but he maintained his faith in McCracken.

Tyson Fury, on the other hand, has won big fights under the tutelage of his uncle Peter Fury, Ben Davison, and Sugarhill Steward. Deontay Wilder has hired Malik Scott as his new trainer before of his rematch with Tyson Fury on October 9.

Anatoly Lomachenko, the father of pound-for-pound star Vasiliy and the man who guided him to an Olympic gold medal, has reconnected with Usyk.

Anthony Joshua, on the other hand, has remained consistent in his devotion to McCracken after learning from the sport’s past.

He said, “There are so many wonderful old-school trainers.” “I enjoy looking at not only the athlete, but also the person who trained them.

“For Muhammad Ali, Angelo Dundee was a motivator who realised that providing him positive affirmations motivated him.”

He let him be himself: ‘I’m the best!’

“Cus D’Amato was his [Tyson’s] psychologist at the time. You examine several systems and what works best for various athletes.

“What is the Ingle system? You’re well aware that entering the Ingle gym entails becoming a member of a system. If you buy into the system, you’re almost certainly crossing your name off the list of champions.

“A coach can teach the same system, but he or she must first understand what makes people tick.

“‘Come on, champ, do it for your kids!’ might be enough encouragement. ‘More work, we’re doing 20 rounds!’ you might need to say.
