Speaking to Boxing News he said,

“Rob McCracken’s a really good coach, the only thing I’d say is look at Carl Froch’s nose. He just didn’t teach me defence.

“And in heavyweight boxing, the level of competition I was facing at that stage of my career, I was getting hit way too much with clean shots.

“I was sparring Solomon Dacres… the tall six foot five guy, in Miami for (Andy) Ruiz, who’s five foot.

“Rob was in Japan for the Olympics. He only came back seven weeks before it. I just know it’s not good enough for where I’m at.

“Derrick reminds me of Rob but a lot more invested. Rob was too committed to the Olympic team, not pros.

“I gave Rob my best years, now I’ve got to dig deep to get them back.”

Froch has been critical of Joshua in recent times so it doesn’t really come as a surprise that ‘AJ’ has fired a shot back.

Joshua faces Dillian Whyte on August 12th in a rematch at the O2.
