Anthony Joshua has had three trainers in his last four fights but might have found the best of the lot in his most recent outing against Otto Wallin.
It was the main event on the Day of Reckoning card and the victory against the Swedish southpaw that famously pushed Tyson Fury hard over 12 rounds in 2019 has set Joshua up for a huge 2024.
One potential fight could be against Fury should he come through his undisputed clash with Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia on February 17.
The two British heavyweights have something in common in that Fury was once trained by Ben Davison, who was with ‘AJ’ for his last outing and was in Fury’s corner for the Wallin fight in Las Vegas.
Speaking to ProBoxingFans, Davison was asked if he would train Joshua for a Fury fight in the future and he declined to be drawn on the matter.
“It’s a hypothetical conversational isn’t it, ’cause we’re a million miles away from that happening. At the minute it’s not even on the radar, it’s not even something to think about ’cause it’s a million miles away.”
Davison then explained why he is not yet thinking about that potential challenge.
“There’s two fights with Fury and Usyk and ‘AJ’ has other tasks ahead so that’s the focus at the minute.”
