Robert Garica Confident in Anthony Joshua
Speaking on the rematch, Garica said: “I want to congratulate Usyk and his team for all the success they had. They’re great people and a great team.”
“I started coming back and forth in December to England to work with Anthony. I see a different Anthony now, the way he thinks, the way he talks, and how he’s practising everything he’s doing in the gym.
“I thought he fought the wrong fight, and that’s the past, and that happened already. Usyk was the better man, congratulations to him, but come August 20th, we’re going to do whatever it takes to win his titles back.
“Definitely, we’ve got to prepare for everything. Usyk is a great fighter. He’s got skills, he’s got reflexes, he’s got accuracy, he’s got everything., but I think Anthony has got all the tools to beat him,” Garcia added.
“We’ve just got to do the things in the gym. When I first came in December, [trainer] Angel Fernandez, who was working with us, told me so many things that went wrong in the camp.
“That’s the past, that already happened. Now, it’s time to work on what Anthony can do. If you see Anthony in the back, he’s practising little things that we’ve been working on in the gym. Even on his days off, we’re training and watching videos together.
“He’s learning, he’s taking notes, he wants to be champion again, and as I told you, I have no doubts that on August 20, he will be champion again.”
Garcia Talks Anthony Joshua
When asked what it was like to work with Joshua, Garcia said: “With the dedication that he has and all the hard work that he does in training in the gym, it motivates me to do much more in the training camp, to come out with a win because I know how much he wants it and how much the rest of the team wants it. That motivates me to do it also.
“I want my first heavyweight champion of the world. I’ve had 14 world champions, and he will be my 15th. He will be my first heavyweight champion of the world, and that will be big for me too.”
