Over the past few weeks, The former unified heavyweight boxing champion of the world and the most hyped/respected boxer that anyone would almost admire met with a crushing defeat at the hands of Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk. This fight was something that shook the boxing world because many boxing experts and fans thought that it would be a walk in the park for him.
But it wasn't so, by a stroke of fate and luck Anthony Joshua lost all his titles in one night after months of practice and training to take it back from the first challenger that took it from him. As you all know this fight was a replacement for the one that was to take place between him and his rival, heavyweight British boxer Tyson Fury. As their clash was called off due to some unspecified reasons by Fury's camp, Usyk then came into view.
Which led to Anthony Joshua's defeat, in a recent interview video on YouTube ahead of his clash with Deontay wilder this weekend, Tyson reportedly said that he would train Anthony Joshua for free in preparation of his next rematch against Oleksandr Usyk. Although this may seem sudden or perhaps Fury is just bragging about but it is the best offer for Anthony Joshua.
And the reason is that Tyson Fury is one of the best boxers because his greatest advantage in boxing is his brain which gives him a good ring IQ and makes him one of the best technical boxers in the world.
Fury can help Anthony Joshua to get better because while A. J has good physique, amazing athletic ability, and punching power but unfortunately he lacks tactical prowess. From what boxing experts have noticed whenever Anthony Joshua gets hurt in the ring he rushes forward to slug it out as seen in his previous fight which is not a very good tactic as most of his opponents would capitalize on that to give him a good beating.
Fury has great ring sense and knows how to use it because when he fought against Wilder the second time, he substituted size for power and was able to defeat him. So Fury might able to impart this knowledge to him, and it may help him better his game.
