British boxer, Anthony Joshua, has lashed out at people who have advised him to sack his trainer, Rob McCracken and called such suggestions “shallow-minded, small-minded”.
Joshua plans to regain the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles that were lost to Andy Ruiz Jr in a rematch on December 7, with McCracken still by his side.
Asked on AJ: The Untold Truth about calls for him to find a new trainer, Joshua said: “Whoever said that is a clown. Part ways with McCracken? No way. These people don’t understand loyalty.
Quote
“These people aren’t cut from the same cloth, if that’s what they are suggesting.
“Whoever has that mindset should not bother talking to me, if they have that mindset.
“How could they say that? I’ve worked with two people in boxing – Sean Murphy, my trainer [at Finchley amateur gym]. Then a year-and-a-half later I was up to Sheffield training with Rob McCracken.
“They have built me, aside from boxing, as the man I am today. A father, a family man, a businessman who understands the responsibility of being a young African-British kid. They built that in me.
“You can’t take that away. You can take the belts away – they will be gone when I retire. The man that they built? You can’t take that away.
“The man that will help to inspire my kids and other kids? You can’t take that away.
“I should never get rid of those types of people. Because I lost the belts I should get rid of the people that built me? No way.
“It’s shallow-minded, small-minded.
“Mike Tyson could have lost to anyone but you can’t get rid of [his trainer] Cus D’Amato. People do not truly understand what these people mean to your life.”
