Anthony Joshua is set to link up with boxing legend Roy Jones Jr as the former champion ponders a change of trainer ahead of his 2023 comeback, after admitting his second defeat by Oleksandr Usyk has left him ‘hurting’




Anthony Joshua is set to turn to Roy Jones Jr as the former champion weighs up a potential change of coaches ahead of his 2023 return.




The two-time heavyweight champion was outclassed once again as he suffered a second-straight defeat to Ukrainian mastermind Oleksandr Usyk in August, with his next bout likely to be his first non-world title fight since 2015.





Joshua replaced long-term trainer Robert McCracken with renowned coach Robert Garcia in the wake of his first defeat to Usyk, but the 33-year-old is already reviewing his options after another highly disappointing loss.





Jones Jr, who has worked with Chris Eubank Jr for his recent fights – though he wasn’t in the equation for his cancelled bout against Conor Benn – revealed the news of his potential partnership with Joshua on Thursday.
