Joshua’s unstoppable – Garcia

By Daily Sports Nigeria on November 18, 2023

Former Anthony Joshua trainer, Robert Garcia has said that Anthony Joshua is unstoppable when mentally prepared and can beat anybody in the heavyweight division.

After years of failed negotiations, a heavyweight megafight between Joshua and Deontay Wilder seems closer than ever.

Joshua and Wilder are set to feature on the same December 23 bill in Saudi Arabia against Otto Wallin and Joseph Parker respectively, and if the two former world champions come out victorious, then a fight between the two hard-hitters in 2024 could be next.

Although comoing a few years later than expected, a fight between Joshua and Wilder is still a huge matchup in the heavyweight division, and will be one which generates huge interest despite no world titles being on the line.

Both men are known for their punching power and this should set up what should be an exciting contest.

Speaking to Little Giant Boxing, Robert Garcia, who trained Joshua for his rematch against Oleksandr Usyk, has given his thoughts on the fight and believes the British-Nigerian’s natural athleticism gives him every chance of beating the “Bronze Bomber”.

“Look, a fighter like Anthony Joshua, he’s just natural, he’s a natural athlete, people say he focuses too much on weights but he doesn’t even do weights,” Garcia said.

“He’s just a natural muscular dude. He runs a lot. The skills he has, the power he has, could beat anybody.”

However, there is one factor that concerns Garcia if Joshua is to step into the ring against Wilder and that is whether the former Olympian will be in the right mental state to take on someone as dangerous as Wilder.

“For him, it’s more about being mentally prepared. If he’s mentally prepared he’s unstoppable,” Garcia continued.

“When it comes to talent, he’s probably the best out there. But if somebody has doubts mentally, then there’s gonna be a problem, but if he’s able to correct that, he could beat any of those heavyweights out there.

“Of course (I give him a shot against Wilder.) Wilder’s also had some bad losses, Fury beat him up pretty bad. You don’t know if Wilder is the same anymore, a jab could knock him out. That happens in boxing. One knockout could change your whole career.”
