Eddy Reynoso wants to train Joshua for Usyk rematch

Coach Eddie Rynosso says he is interested in coaching Anthony Joshua in his next fight against Oleksandr Usyk in the rematch next May. Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) is expected to replace longtime coach Rob McCracken for the rematch with IBF/WBA/WBO Heavyweight Champion Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs).

Assuming Reynoso won’t quite steer Joshua away from battling elite opposition as we’ve seen happen with Canelo Alvarez since 2018, it’s doubtful he’ll make any improvements whatsoever in AJ’s game.

Joshua has major stamina issues, and can’t take a punch without getting hurt. Even against the non-puncher Osek, Joshua was injured last September. These are things that Renoso can’t fix.

We haven’t seen any improvement in Andy Ruiz Jr’s game since he started training with Reynoso. if something happens, Ruiz Jr. is worse than before.

Reynoso, best known for being the coach who drove Canelo Alvarez’s career, believes he can make improvements in Joshua’s game to help him beat Usek.

Canelo is a good fighter, but a lot of the reasons for his success are things he learned himself from watching other fighters. You cannot give Reynoso credit for Canelo.

“Well, it’s a question of the timing of his next fight. We spoke with management Eddie Hearn and Joshua and we’ll see what happens,” Reynoso told Fight Hub TV when asked if he was interested in training him for a rematch with Usyk.

“I love working with Joshua. Why not? My job is to train the fighters, and I’ll see if I can make that work,” Reynoso said of coaching Joshua for the rematch with Usek next May.

what Renoso is good at choosing the opponent for Canelo to fight. He is very good at picking an opponent to keep Canelo winning. More than anything else, Renoso’s choice of discount is what makes it so valuable.

If Reynuso chooses to oppose Joshua, we may not see him fight Usyek, Tyson Fury, or anyone else who could defeat him. If Joshua is going to fight a A bunch of ham and eggs like Canelo was doing Since 2018, he will look great, but his career will be disappointing.

Look at Canelo’s career. He stopped facing significant opposition in 2018 when he defeated Gennady Golovkin. After that battle, Canelo fought men from Europe, and viable men from the United States such as Caleb Plant and Danny Jacobs.

“I think he’s working more remotely, better fixtures,” Reynoso said of the improvements Joshua needs in his game. “He has a lot of good qualities, a lot of good physical traits, but he doesn’t benefit from them.

“I am a boxing coach and would like to work with anyone. Whatever it is, it’s just something when the fights are going to happen, and we are ready,” Reynoso said when asked about training Joshua.

“Yeah, I’ve talked to Joshua and Hearn to see what they can do and we’ll see what’s next.

“No, there’s no conflict in Joshua being there with Andy [Ruiz Jr]. Both do not have fights, so there is an opportunity to work with both. No, there is no conflict, at all.

“Andy has other fights coming and so does Joshua,” said Reynoso.

“I spoke to his father. Let’s see if we can do something with him,” Reynuso said when asked about the prospect of coaching welterweight competitor Virgil Ortiz Jr.

If Joshua feels that Reynoso is going to be the magical person turning his walk toward more power into him, he should open his eyes and take a closer look at Canelo and Ruiz.

Canelo has had a lot of controversial decisions on his resume, and it’s clear that he stopped fighting quality fighters after his questionable victory over GGG in 2018. In the past four years, Canelo has fought these guys:

  • Avni Yildirim
  • Rocky Fielding
  • Billy Joe Saunders
  • Callum Smith
  • Sergey Kovalev
  • Caleb Factory
  • Danny Jacobs

The men Canelo should have fought are these fighters:

  • David Benavides
  • Gennady Golovkin
  • David Morrell Jr.
  • Demetrius Andrade
  • Jermal Charlotte
