Oleksandr Usyk "doesn’t care" Joshua has changed trainers ahead of rematch fight

Oleksandr Usyk "doesn't care" about Anthony Joshua switching his training programme ahead of their upcoming rematch bout.

The Watford warrior was beaten for only the second time in his heavyweight career by Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on September 25.

After going the distance, AJ was defeated via unanimous decision losing his IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO belts to the Ukrainian challenger.

Now, in preparation for the rematch fight, Joshua has been spotted touring several gyms across the US, leading to rumours that the former heavyweight champion is switching from current trainer Rob McCraken.

But that hasn't seemed to disturb Usyk, with his promoter Alex Krassyuk claiming the 34-year-old is unbothered by a potential change.

Taking part in a question and answer session on his Instagram account, one supporter asked: "Has Usyk said anything about Joshua changing trainers for the 2nd fight?"

To which Krassyuk ruthlessly responded: "He has. He said he doesn’t care."

In a later question, Usyk's promoter commented: "Victory is not about a trainer. It's about your heart, courage, hard work and dedication."

During the question and answer session, Krassyuk also claimed Usyk would be open to fighting Tyson Fury after the rematch with Joshua but stated the Ukrainian is solely focused on this upcoming bout.

There were reports that Usyk was ready to swerve a unification clash with Fury due to the Englishman's superior size but Usyk's promoter was quick to rebuke those claims on his Instagram.

"Size never matters," said Krassyuk.
