Anthony Joshua Wants to Impress Franklin: “I’m Mentally Ready”

Anthony Joshua is keen to meet the ‘high standards’ of his new coach, Derrick James, when he returns to the ring on April 1.

After 25 bouts, Joshua unified three of the world’s four heavyweight belts, and won them back in a rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr to become a two-time champion. He did all this with the UK coach, Rob McCracken, by his side.

His first loss to Oleksandr Usyk prompted him to change coaches, and he went to Robert Garcia, a California coach who has coached the likes of Marcos Maidana, Nonito Donaire, Mikey Garcia and Bam Rodriguez.

However, the partnership only lasted until their second loss to Usyk, with ‘AJ’ quickly touring the Bangs after that. This time, he found Derrick James, former coach of the year and now world champion Errol Spence Jr, and Jermell Charlo.

The couple will face their first test in Jermaine Franklin, and Joshua tells DAZN His main priority is to impress James.
