Garcia's training could see AJ KO'd in seven rounds vs Usyk, says Fury

‘Robert Garcia’s gameplan will decide how quickly Anthony Joshua gets chinned!’: Tyson Fury warns British rival he could suffer KO inside seven rounds under new trainer in Oleksandr Usyk rematch

  • Tyson Fury has made a U-turn over his retirement and wants unification bout
  • He is keen to take on winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk 
  • Joshua has brought in Robert Garcia to help him prepare for the fight
  • Fury has played down the importance of Garcia, saying it will get AJ knocked out 

Anthony Joshua could ‘get knocked out inside seven rounds’ in his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk if his new trainer forces him to go all-out attack, says Tyson Fury. 

Robert Garcia has been recruited by AJ to work alongside Angel Fernandez and Fury believes the plan could be for his fellow Brit to go for broke and make his weight advantage tell. 

But the Gypsy King, who on Tuesday made a U-turn over his retirement if the money is right for a unification bout, says only he could help AJ win.

He told Queensbury Promotions: ‘Unless Anthony Joshua gets his a** up to Morecambe and lets me train him for this fight, Robert Garcia and 10 men like him will not make him beat Usyk.

‘Because: One, they don’t know him; two, they don’t know what he’s got in his engine; and three, he’s not a little Mexican who can go toe to toe with someone for 15 rounds. 

‘If he gets on Usyk from Round 1 and tries to push and be aggressive, he’ll be gassed out after four rounds and get stopped in seven.

‘But if he comes to Morecambe Bay and I teach him how to be a real fighting man for 12 rounds and how to deal with these little middleweight people, then he will get a win. But other than that, I see him getting beat again. Two in a row, baby, and it’s over.

‘But if he wants to resurrect his career, please come up to the man who’s never lost a fight in his life, been undefeated for 13 years and retired as only the second heavyweight in history to be on top of the game – won every belt in history there is to win.’

AJ lost to Usyk in a unanimous decision defeat last September and is desperate to avenge the defeat to reclaim the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts. 

Fury wants to take on the winner in what looks set to be another showdown in Saudi Arabia. 

He believes it will be Usyk lining up against him, particularly if AJ is too aggressive. 

Fury went on: ‘It all goes on what Robert Garcia’s gameplan is and how quick he wants [Joshua] to get chinned.

Fury thinks it would be foolish for AJ to try and fight like a Mexican in the rematch 

Garcia will attempt to help AJ reverse the first Usyk defeat by changing strategy

‘To have a style of keep coming forward and putting pressure on somebody, when you’re a big man like he is and like I am, you need to have two V12 engines. You need to be able to take punches as well, and you need to have balls like King Kong. None of them three of the above does he have.

‘Other than that, he’s got to have the best gameplan ever. The way I see him doing it, if he trains with [Garcia], is he might hit him with a big punch – which he didn’t last time – and try and knock him out that way.

‘Honestly if he goes on the front foot and tries to be aggressive and all that with Usyk, I think he’ll get stopped inside eight rounds, and I mean that.’
