Anthony Joshua ‘in talks with Floyd Mayweather about legend joining his fight camp’ ahead of Tyson Fury showdown


ANTHONY JOSHUA is reportedly in talks with Floyd Mayweather about the American legend joining his training camp ahead of his fight with Tyson Fury.

Money Mayweather was ringside for AJ’s December win over Kubrat Pulev and the pair have formed a close bond in the past four years.

And Mayweather – who wants to become a trainer – considered the link up just days after AJ’s mega-fight with the Gypsy King was announced, according to the Mail.

Speaking last week, Mayweather said: “I look forward to working with Anthony Joshua real soon.

“We communicate all the time, we talk all the time.

“His fight with Fury is a very interesting fight.”

AJ’s long term trainer Rob McCracken will remain the main man regardless of what happens with Mayweather.

Mayweather and AJ first became friends when Joshua took a trip to Las Vegas in 2017.

Floyd took time out to host the Brit and his entourage in Sin City’s nightclubs.

And he also invited the heavyweight champ into his gym to watch him spar ahead of his win over Conor McGregor.

Joshua’s camp manager David Ghansa told the Mail: “It was a holiday but we were also out there looking for training bases.

“While we were out there we got a message from Mayweather asking what hotel we were staying at.

“We told him and all of a sudden, maybe an hour after, he was in the underground car park with all his mates and loads of Rolls Royces.

“The hotel desk called our room and said Floyd is waiting for you in the car park. It was crazy. From that point on he basically hosted us for the rest of our time there.

“We went to nightclubs with him and he even closed off his gym so we could watch him spar.

“He was preparing to fight McGregor at the time and it was just an unbelievable experience.”
