The British heavyweight star is attempting to regain his WBA, WBO and IBF titles after a unanimous decision loss to the Ukrainian in September.

Joshua has reportedly teamed up with new trainer Robert Garcia, who was pictured with fellow coach Angel Fernandez, at their current training base at Loughborough University.

The 32-year-old is returning for his second fight in Saudi Arabia, having defeated Andy Ruiz Jr on points in a rematch in December 2019.
