Anthony Joshua is now back in the United States to scout and learn from different coaches ahead of his return in 2023.
A year ago, after his first loss to Oleksandr Usyk, AJ parted ways with longtime coach Rob McCracken and traveled to America to seek a new coach.
The Briton visited Ronnie Shields, Virgil Hunter and Eddy Reynoso but ultimately opted to partner Robert Garcia alongside his current assistant coach Angel Fernandez.
The trio worked together for Usyk’s rematch which saw an improved performance from Joshua.
In the end, the result was the same and the Ukrainian emerged victorious once again.
In the aftermath, Garcia raised his eyebrows as he suggested that Usyk was the “mentally stronger” of the two fighters.
He also said he would want AJ to train at his gym in California eight weeks before a fight if they were ever to work together again.
The Briton is now planning his return in 2023, and it looks like he could be ready to revamp his squad as he once again flies to the United States.
Joshua was spotted in Virgil Hunter’s gym again and legendary fighter-turned-trainer Roy Jones Jr has previously told talkSPORT.com that he also plans to work with him.
Promoter Eddie Hearn said over the weekend: “He will fight late March, early April.
“He has just landed in America, he is preparing his training plans, which will start the first week of January.
“We are looking to announce his date very soon. An opponent will follow in due course.
“I think the opponent will come once he completes his training plans. Because I think it’s important to talk to the training teams to decide who they want.
“He would fight anyone, but they will want a specific fighter to develop again.
“I think he’s always looking and learning. He had a good experience with Robert Garcia, but I think he’s definitely looking at his camp and how he can improve it for the next one.
