Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte has given his two cents on the ongoing US tour that Athony Joshua is on.
The former unified heavyweight champ has been in the United States for the last couple of weeks and has been going from gym to gym, taking pictures with different coaches and trainers.
Nobody knows the exact reason for this, as many believe “AJ” is searching for a new trainer for his upcoming rematch with Oleksandr Usyk next year.
For his entire career, Joshua has been trained by veteran coach Robert McCracken.
Whyte, who suffered a knockout loss to Joshua in 2015, says his domestic rival should look inside of himself, not at his trainers, for what went wrong in his last ring appearance.
“The easiest thing to do when you lose is to question the people around you instead of questioning yourself. Robert McCracken is a great trainer. Look what he’s done for Carl Froch and other people on the GB squad. But when you lose you start looking for excuses, ‘Ah maybe I didn’t sleep enough, maybe it’s my coaches.’ Joshua’s problem is with himself, it’s not with his coaches – it’s him,” Whyte told Talk Sport.
“He let all these idiots come around him and start telling him, ‘Ah, yeah, do this and be like this.’ He should’ve started steaming Usyk after a few rounds, he should’ve at least tried. He just subdued to a twelve round beating.”
