Joshua Can Win the Rematch Against Usyk if he Makes the Most of his Physicality-Eddy Reynoso. According to Canelo Alvarez‘s trainer, Eddy Reynoso Joshua can win his rematch against Usyk if he throws better combinations and makes good use of his physical advantages.
Last year, September to be precise, Anthony Joshua lost his match against Oleksandr Usyk by Unanimous points. He failed to get close to Usyk in over 12 rounds and lost his heavyweight titles in the process.
After exercising his rematch clause immediately after his defeat, he flirted with the idea of stepping aside to allow Usyk and Tyson Fury to battle it out for the undisputed crown.
But according to Eddy Reynoso, Joshua must take advantage of his physicality and throw better combinations to defeat Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua Expected to Lock Horns with Usyk again
Since Tyson Fury is now set to defend his WBC strap against Dillian Whyte, it is now expected that Anthony Joshua will meet with Oleksandr Usyk for the second time. This match is expected to take place in late March or early April this year.
Although Rob McCracken will have to be involved with the rematch somehow, Anthony Joshua will be having a new lead trainer in his corner for the rematch.
In his recent trip to the U.S, the Brit enjoyed some trial sessions with the well-esteemed coach, Reynoso.
Other coaches he visited on his tour of America are Robert Garcia and Ronnie Shields. AJ is still yet to announce who his new coach will be.
