Anthony Joshua’s former trainer has said he wants to go home after a week hiding his problems with Alexander Usyk’s revenge camp.


Anthony Joshua’s ex-manager Oleksandr Usyk said he was disappointed in the training camp for his rematch and asked to go home.

AJ lost the first Ukrainian matches at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the second in Saudi Arabia.

Robert Garcia replaced the former world heavyweight champion’s longtime trainer Rob McCracken after his first loss.

Garcia has been in the fight camp before this rematch and has said he wants to leave.

He told iD Boxing: “I know I worked with me and Angel Fernandez wasn’t bad, but to be honest, it could have been better.

“No one tells everything that happened in the training camp, and I don’t either. But we all know how training camp went.

“It was frustrating for me, there were a lot of new people in the camp. The first week I was there, I told his management to take me home.

“Because there were people there who thought it wouldn’t help.”

Garcia will not be in AJ’s corner for his next fight against Jermaine Franklin on April 1st, with Derrick James as his new head coach at the camp based at James’ gym in Texas.

His former trainer has backed him to return to this clash and move on to the big names again.

Garcia: “I think he’s in a great place right now, he’s in a great training camp and I’m sure he’ll be in great shape.

“He’s coming off a good, solid win, so his next fight could be against a big name.”
