After that loss, the second of his career, the British hero was criticized for his approach to fighting and then began searching for a new trainer to work with him longtime coach Rob McCracken.

Now he has revealed his assistant coach has moved up as part of a change to his line-up.

Joshua to Behind The Gloves: “I’m working with Angel Fernandez right now. He’s been in my camp for the last three years anyway.”

When asked if Fernandez would be his head coach, AJ replied, “Yeah man.”

It comes after its Matchroom promoter Eddie Horn revealed it was time for Joshua to “move on” from McCracken’s Sheffield headquarters.

He said: “I think it might be time to move away from that environment because when you’ve been there since you were 18 and you go to the UK and Anthony Joshua is everywhere, he’s a god.

“I just feel like it’s time to shake him up a bit, not in log cabins in the middle of nowhere.

“But up there it’s like, ‘Oh my god, it’s AJ!’ because they are proud of him. Rob isn’t necessarily gone.

“That’s a conversation for these guys and it’s very difficult because he’s more than just a coach, he’s a mentor to him, an advisor, a friend. It’s not just about who’s training him, it’s also about where that’s going to take place.”

Joshua’s rematch, believed to be set for April, is now in doubt after Usyk joined the fight against Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
