Anthony Joshua downplays rumors he’s dropped sparring partners

Anthony Joshua downplayed rumors he dropped sparring partners during his training camp for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua takes on Usyk this Saturday in Saudi Arabia to avenge a decision defeat by the undefeated Ukrainian who clinched the heavyweight title for the Brit in London last September.

Joshua, 32, has been urged to be more aggressive in his rematch against Usyk, 35, but “AJ” was shy when asked about rumors he had dropped practice partners during his preparations for Saturday’s fight.

“Well, well, I don’t talk about stuff like that,” Joshua said Sky Sports. “It’s not good, it’s not good to talk about this stuff.

“All that stuff is just good for the day, okay? Now it’s about Saturday. Just because you sparred whatever… None of that… It’s all irrelevant.

“I’m at a loss for words because Saturday is all that matters. All the other stuff is irrelevant [I have to] Just go out and do my job on Saturday.”

Joshua previously lost the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles in June 2019 when he was stopped by Andy Ruiz Jr. at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

“AJ” avenged the loss and regained the belts by referencing Ruiz Jr. in Saudi Arabia later in the year.
