"Whole world saw it": Joshua's ex-trainer admits he felt sorry for Usyk
Anthony Joshua's (25-3, 22 KOs) former trainer Robert Garcia admitted that he felt ashamed of his client's behaviour after his defeat in the rematch against Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs). The American admitted that he felt sorry for the Ukrainian boxer because the Briton did not hold back in his statements after the fight and threw our compatriot's championship belts outside the ring.
Garcia said this in an interview with the Fighthype YouTube channel, according to Boxing News 24. Joshua's ex-mentor stressed that Anthony behaved very incorrectly towards Usyk and the fans, as the coach himself honestly told him. This allegedly upset the Briton.
"I said he lost his head after the fight. I was not the only one who said that. The whole world saw it. I know it was wrong. I felt sorry for Usyk. Usyk is the world champion and he just defended his titles, and Anthony grabbed his belts and threw them away. It's very disrespectful. So what do I have to say? That I'm proud that he did the right thing? So because I said that, he felt bad?" - Garcia was outraged.
Earlier, Anthony Joshua did not apologise for his hysteria after his second defeat by the Ukrainian. The British ex-champion also admitted that he was angry with Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) after the fight. In turn, Usyk himself explained why he did not knock out his opponent.
Recall that the Usyk-Joshua rematch took place in August last year. The Ukrainian won by split decision. After the result was announced, the Watford native threw a tantrum and had a fight with the fans.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Anthony Joshua has demonstrated his true attitude towards Oleksandr Usyk. He also expressed dissatisfaction with the situation around the Ukrainian champion's fights. In addition, Anthony spoke unequivocally about the third fight against our boxer.
