Anthony Joshua adds two new pad men to revamped training team as he bids to win back heavyweight titles from Andy Ruiz Jr

Anthony Joshua has made two new additions to his coaching team as he bids to win back his heavyweight titles next month in a crucial rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr.

The Daily Mail claim the Watford-born fighter has made some final touches to his training camp, with both Angel Fernandez and Joby Clayton joining his ranks.

Joshua has remained loyal to his head coach Rob McCracken, who came in for heavy criticism after the former was knocked down four times on the way to sensational stoppage defeat by Ruiz Jr back in June.

McCracken, who has previously guided Joshua to the unified heavyweight titles, revealed ‘new faces’ would join AJ’s training team in the wake of that defeat.

And those behind-the-scenes changes have indeed come, with Fernandez, who coaches British cruiserweight Isaac Chamberlain, coming on board.

Clayton, who has been involved in boxing for nearly three decades, has also earned himself a role in the revamped set-up.
