Nigeria born British boxer, Anthony Joshua is working on the quality of his mindset ahead of his heavyweight world title rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua is expected to bout Usyk in April for the unified WBA, WBO and IBF belts, after losing them to the Ukrainian in last year.
Usyk, who tasted water at heavyweight level, beat the odds to win the belts in comfortable fashion from Joshua in front of over 63,000 of his home fans at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
During the interview with Newsmen, Joshua said, “Let’s focus on quality. Let’s focus on what’s needed and it has to come from the top down.”
“I’m the last piece of the puzzle, I’m the last performance, so we’re talking about game planning, mindset, brain training, our approach to sparring and what we’re getting out of it.”
Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn has previously explained that Joshua was “angry” over his defeat and wanted to “bash up” Usyk in a second meeting.
“I think it will realistically be the end of March, early April. Both guys are probably resting, although AJ will be doing a bit more preparation because he wants to get it right,” Hearn said.
