Anthony Joshua has made two new additions to his coaching team as he bids to win back his heavyweight titles next month in a crucial rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr.
The Watford-born fighter has made some final touches to his training camp, with both Angel Fernandez and Joby Clayton joining his ranks.
Joshua has remained loyal to his head coach Rob McCracken, who came in for heavy criticism after the former was knocked down four times on the way to sensational stoppage defeat by Ruiz Jr back in June.
McCracken, who has previously guided Joshua to the unified heavyweight titles, revealed ‘new faces’ would join AJ’s training team in the wake of that defeat.
And those behind-the-scenes changes have indeed come to fruition, with Fernandez, who coaches British cruiserweight Isaac Chamberlain, now on board.
Clayton, who has been involved in boxing for nearly three decades, has also earned himself a role in the revamped set-up.

Joshua’s team maintain that McCracken remains in charge of the operation, with the arrival of two new pad men allowing him to have more of a broad-ranging role.
“Under the guidance and instruction of head coach Rob McCracken, Anthony and Robert have complimented his team in this camp by using the services of two specialist coaches,” a spokesman for Team AJ said.
The rematch is quite simply a must-win for Joshua, who will be looking to avenge his defeat to Ruiz Jr and regain the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles on December 7 in Saudi Arabia.
