sport news Carl Froch: Anthony Joshua needs a 'brain transplant' if he is to defeat ... trends now
Froch believes the Watford-born Joshua has the body to take on Usyk, but questioned his mentality ahead of their rematch in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on August 20.
Last September at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Usyk won their initial fight by unanimous decision, but now Joshua has a new trainer, Robert Garcia, who is thought to bring more aggression to the 32-year-old's boxing style.
Anthony Joshua, right, has switched trainer ahead of August's rematch with Oleksandr Usyk
Despite the switch-up, though, former super-middleweight champion Froch does not fancy Joshua's chances of turning the tables this time around.
Froch told iFL TV: 'Sometimes a change is good, but for Anthony Joshua to beat Oleksandr Usyk, he needs a brain transplant. He's got all the physical attributes but I just don't think he can beat him.'
