Fury’s trainer Jorge Capetillo wants Joshua to step aside for Tyson to face Usyk Boxing News 24
Via William Lloyd: Tyson Fury’s trainer Jorge Capetillo wants Anthony Joshua to step aside and let Tyson face IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk for the next championship.
Capetillo feels that Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) needs a new coach and rest after losing to Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) last September.
So far, 31-year-old Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn have insisted on an immediate rematch with Usyk, betting they will win the same way they did against Andy Ruiz Jr. in December 2019.
Once WBC champion Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) beats Usyk for all four belts, Joshua can then take on him for the undisputed title.
It would be a mistake for Joshua to make an immediate rematch with Usyk following the way he was handled by the undisputed former cruiser class champion in their bout two months ago on September 25 at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium in London.
Joshua should step aside
Jorge Capetillo told Boxing Social: “He’s ready to fight anyone, anywhere, anytime when asked if Fury will fight Dillian Whyte. “It is very meaningful.
“Hopefully AJ will step aside, and Tyson can fight back for all the belts against Usyk, and it will be a big fight anywhere in the world. It could be here; it may be in the UK.
“It was a huge fight, and I hope AJ can rest a bit and recover and let these champions do their job.
“No, I think he needs a fresh start, a fresh start, why not?” Capetillo said when asked if Joshua should switch to another coach or stay with Rob McCracken.
“Sometimes we need a fresh start and change our flaws and clear our mind and find another place, a different coordination partner, a different technique.
“He is [Joshua] Too worried about science, footwork and distance. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a basic principle, but sometimes you have to fight.
“This [Joshua] is a big guy, big hands and not taking advantage. I find him very small compared to Usyk. He weighed 240 lbs, a big man, and I didn’t see his punches. Why? Because he lost too much weight.
“He should be the one to the advantage, coming in at 250 or 262 is the big man to take advantage of your weight and use it. Don’t worry about being slim and technical. Of course, it’s good if you’re technical and understand the basics and basics, but sometimes you have to fight,” Capetillo said.
Given the way Hearn and Joshua have told everyone they will face Usyk in an immediate rematch, it may be too late for him to change his mind.
If Joshua suddenly decided to face Usyk in an immediate rematch, he would look terrible to boxing fans. Of course, at least Joshua’s career is still afloat.
Whyte is a good opponent for Fury
“Dillian Whyte is a good opponent, a good opponent, and he is a lad who can perform well. Obviously, Tyson is too tall in many ways. Physical, technical, thinking and skill. He can box, and he can fight.
“Honestly, I don’t see anyone beating Tyson in this era right now, and he could retire undefeated.
“My son told me one day that he [Fury] maybe retire with a heavyweight championship. It’s crazy, but it’s the truth. I don’t see anyone beat Tyson,” Capetillo said.
Fury supporters will have something to say about whether he will join the fight against WBC-mandatory Dillian Whyte next. It was a risky fight and Fury would lose a lot of money if Whyte beat him.
