Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is reportedly partnering with Ben Davison, the former trainer of his rival Tyson Fury.
Preparing for a Fight with Deontay Wilder
AJ is setting his sights on a highly-anticipated fight with Deontay Wilder, which is likely to take place early next year.
Joshua Teams Up with Ben Davison
Anthony Joshua is set to team up with Ben Davison, who previously trained Tyson Fury during his comeback in 2018.

The terms for the fight between Joshua and Wilder have already been agreed, with only the date and location yet to be determined.
In the meantime, Joshua is preparing for his next opponent by seeking guidance from a new trainer, Ben Davison, according to Michael Benson.
Davison previously helped Fury in his first bout against Wilder, which ended in a draw but was contested as a victory by many fans.
Now, Joshua is learning from the experienced coach, and fans are eagerly waiting to see how Fury's father John reacts to this news.
Fans Anticipate John Fury's Reaction
Excitement is building among fans who are speculating on John Fury's response to Joshua working with Ben Davison, despite previous criticism of the trainer.
One fan commented, "I wonder how long it will take for John Fury to call Ben a traitor, even though he’s slated him in the past for doing a poor job with Tyson?"
Another added, "John Fury video going nuts and tearing Ben down incoming in 5..4..3..2..1."
A third fan said, "Great coach, could be good if he’s ever to face Fury, although Fury turned into a different animal after Ben."
It remains to be seen how Joshua's training with Davison will shape his performance in the ring, but fans are hopeful that it will bring out a more aggressive and dominant AJ.
Joshua, 33, has won both of his fights since his loss to Oleksandr Usyk, but he has not fully convinced in either bout.
After parting ways with long-time trainer Rob McCracken, Joshua began working with Derrick James at the start of the year.
