ANTHONY JOSHUA is unlikely to face Deontay Wilder in a grudge match in the spring as he could soon be working with a new coaching team.
A long-awaited showdown between the pair has been mooted following Wilder’s return to the win column in October.

But Eddie Hearn has revealed the potential appointment of a new team could delay the fight
But with a potential change of coaching team seemingly imminent, promoter Eddie Hearn believes the spring will be too early for the pair to settle their differences.
He told iD Boxing: “I think it’s quite unlikely that you’re going to see that fight in March, in all honesty.
“But again, I know AJ would go straight into that fight.
“He was willing to go straight into the Tyson Fury fight, he was willing to fight Dillian Whyte.
“But he’s also going to be listening to going to be listening to and taking the advice and input of potentially a new training team.
“And they will want time to work with Anthony Joshua.”
Joshua, 33, enlisted the help of Robert Garcia for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk in August, although the renowned American was unable to guide him to victory in the Saudi showdown.
And Hearn believes the new man in charge will want a good chunk of time working with Joshua before he returns to the ring.
He continued: “He brought a new trainer in and then ended up fighting Usyk again straight off the bat.
“So I think the trainer will always be more sensible than the fighter.”
Former four-weight world champ Roy Jones Jr recently claimed he’d be teaming up with Joshua, although his appointment to the team has yet to be confirmed.
Joshua is currently targeting a March return to the ring but is refusing to commit to a specific date for his next outing.
He told DAZN last month: “I don’t know [when I’ll be back].
“I was supposed to be in the ring this year, I’m going to be in the ring next year. I’ll be in the ring when I’m in the ring.

“I don’t want to make statements today and then I’ll get held to the cross.
“Do you know what I mean? When I’m ready, I’ll be back in the ring.”

Here are the Essential Skills of Boxing
How to effectively box
Boxing is one of the most popular sports in the world. It consists of two opponents who try to knock out each other’s head. There are different rules for boxing, and they vary from one country to the next. There are generally three types of boxing: Amateur, Professional, and Olympic.
Amateur boxing usually takes place at school, college and university. This type includes sparring sessions using padded gloves, but without protection. Usually amateur boxing competitions consist of three rounds of five minutes each. There are many styles to amateur boxing like Kickboxing. Muay Thai. Taekwondo. Karate. Judo. Wrestling.
Boxing professionals are usually trained in clubs, gyms, or stadiums. They have protective equipment such as mouthpieces. Six rounds of professional boxing last four minutes each. There are several different styles of professional boxing including Boxing, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Taekwondo and others.
Olympic boxing can be seen at the Olympics. International standards require that boxers use special protective gear. The eight rounds last three minutes each and are held over eight rounds. Only two types of Olympic boxing are available: Light Flyweight or Heavyweight.
Boxing’s fundamental skills are:
- Punching techniques
- Guarding techniques
- Body movement
- Spare parts
There are seven types. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches require more force than others. For example, an uppercut is a powerful punch. On the other hand, a straight punch requires less power but it is faster than other punches.
There are also many combinations. These are combinations which combine several punches in order to achieve a specific goal. One combination can have many parts. For example, a combination of a left and right hook will result in damage to the opponent’s jaw.
A boxer protects himself by using his body. He does this by using his legs, arms, elbows, hands, knees and feet.
Boxers should use the legs to protect themselves against kicks. When he’s hit, he raises his right leg and runs away from the attacker. If the attack comes from the front, then he bends his knees to avoid being kicked on the side. However, if the attack comes from behind, he stands up straight and blocks the kick with his foot.
Because they cause great pain, elbow strikes are extremely effective. You can either deliver an elbow strike directly, or indirectly. Directly means that you hit your opponent with your forearm while indirectly means that you hit him with another part of your arm.
Boxers use their hands to block incoming blows. They raise their fists high above their heads and point them in the direction of an attack. Then, they touch the attacker’s hand.
To absorb the impact of a punch to the stomach, abdomen, or chest, boxers should bend their knees. Knee strikes can be used to defend yourself.
A boxer should take control of an attack and respond with counter-attacks. This way, he can gain distance between himself and his opponent. Additionally, boxers need to maintain their balance when they counter-attack.
Boxing effectively requires a boxer to have a good stance. How he defends his self will depend on how he stances. It determines his position and the direction he will face. Boxers have many options for stances. Here are some of the more popular ones:
- Low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance
- Western stance
The Body Movement
A boxer must change his position, speed and rhythm in order to win the fight. This requires changing your position, speed, and rhythm.
A boxer will rotate his arm when he is throwing a punch. Depending on the type and size of punch, the speed at which the rotation takes place varies.
The timing of each punch will determine the effectiveness and efficiency of a combination. A combination is good if it starts with a strong punch then ends with a weaker one.
Sparring is a training session that improves boxing skills. Sparring allows a boxer to improve his mental and physical skills. The goal of sparring is to learn to fight, and not to get hurt.
Learning to box takes dedication and patience. Boxing is a sport that requires dedication and perseverance.
