Anthony Joshua has spoken on training with new coaches ahead of his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk having been beaten by the Ukrainian back in September and losing his championship status.

The British fighter was simply outclassed by Usyk on the night, with Joshua never really looking comfortable against the shiftier, polished Ukrainian.

Usyk was able to stay in the pocket and outbox Joshua, winning a points decision after 12 rounds in London

And Joshua has stated that he was hugely disappointed with his performance two months ago, stating that he can, and will, be much better when the two meet once again for the rematch.

Speaking to the BBC, he said: "I know I can be better than that night.

"It's easier to say than it is to do, but within my heart and soul, my brain and body, I truly feel I've got a lot more to give.

"I'm angry. It's growing, but it's fuelling me every day.

"I think people still recognise me as champion, even though I haven't got the belts round my waist. They know I've got the capability of becoming champion."

The former Olympic champion has been travelling across the United States recently as he speaks to a number of American trainers, having faced calls to change his team following the defeat to Usyk.

During his trip, he spent two days with Ronnie Shields, the former trainer of Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield, and his assistant Dominick Guinn at their gym in Texas - whilst speaking to a number of other trainers.

When giving his reasons of why he'll be making coaching changes, he said: "I had to make changes. If you remain the same, you get the same results.

"I've got to look at myself, I can only be accountable for me. I'm angry at myself and the only way I can be in a better place is to get myself right by going out there and performing. It's going to be like this for a few months.

"I do things with a smile on my face, but behind that there's a lot of tension brewing and the only way to get it out is by training and performing."

A win for Joshua could lead to a long-anticipated bout against Tyson Fury later in 2022.
