Anthony Joshua

One of boxing’s great coaches would welcome Anthony Joshua in his gym to make a number of improvements

One of boxing’s great coaches, Eddy Reynoso, would welcome Anthony Joshua in his San Diego gym so they could make several improvements to his fighting style.

“I’m a boxing trainer and willing to work with anyone,” Reynoso told Fight Hub TV. “Him also. Whoever, it’s just a thing of when the fights will be happening, and we are ready.”

It would elevate the House of Boxing fight club even further than it already is, as it is home to the sport’s No.1 boxer Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, two-weight champion Oscar Valdez, and heavyweights Andy Ruiz Jr. and Frank Sanchez.

Like Alvarez, Joshua is one of boxing’s true attractions as they jam-pack tens of thousands of people into arenas and are monstrous pay-per-view sellers.

However, unlike Alvarez, who cannot stop winning, Joshua is looking to rebuild following the second loss of his career as he came unstuck in London last year, dropping a defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.

Since losing to Usyk, Joshua fueled the rumor mill as he was seen touring American gyms.

This sparked speculation that he was either set to sack long-time trainer Robert McCracken or was recruiting another trainer to add to what McCracken already does in the UK.

Joshua was seen with the Charlo brothers in Texas, coach Virgil Hunter in Los Angeles, and Reynoso and Canelo in San Diego.

If Joshua wanted to return to San Diego for an extended period, Reynoso would be ready.

Reynoso said he’d even spoken to Joshua and Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn “to see what can be done”

He continued: “I would love to work with Joshua. Why not? My job is to train fighters, and I will see if I can make it work.”

On what he would add to Joshua’s game, Reynoso said: “I think work his distance more, better combinations. He has a lot of good traits, a lot of good physical traits, but doesn’t take advantage of them.”

Joshua’s pro boxing record is 24 wins (22 knockouts) against two defeats.

Though he can activate a clause in his contract with Usyk to activate a rematch, no such fight has been confirmed yet and so it is unclear when Joshua will return to the ring.
