But he will have to be more aggressive in the rematch

Since then, Joshua vowed that he would play to his size and strength advantages in the rematch and go for the knockout.

He called himself a ‘comeback king’ ahead of his August 20 clash with Usyk in Saudi Arabia.

Judging by the footage from Joshua’s recent training, he is well on his way to the rematch as he has released a number of clips showing off his speed and power, with the caption “Friday’s Finisher”.

Joshua has a brand new practice squad ahead of the rematch with Usyk, as he has parted ways with longtime manager Rob McCracken and moved from Sheffield where he has been based since the amateurs.

Now he’s teamed up with Angel Fernandez and Robert Garcia, who have guided 14 fighters to world titles, and ‘AJ’ runs his camp at Loughborough.

“I think all fighters should be training with new coaches,” Joshua told talkSPORT. “I think it’s important for growth. I don’t think you should submit to one coach for your entire career.

“That’s just my opinion. And it’s not a thing where he disrespects anyone, it’s about growing. You have to try and experience new things, see what you like in others if you get the chance. That was it, it was time for me to grow as a fighter.

“When you win, you don’t see that you have to make changes.”

Joshua’s new coach, Garcia, echoed that sentiment, saying: “A lot of things change in training camps. Once a fighter gets too comfortable with their trainer and the trainers get too comfortable with the fighters, things will fall apart. And that’s probably what happened in his last camp.

“So now it’s a new voice, he shows it in the ring, he shows it in the gym that he’s hungry and he’s motivated to do it. We sit and watch fights together and he writes notes. So he shows me that he really wants it.
