ANTHONY JOSHUA looks ready to fight as he nears announcing his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
The British heavyweight superstar has posted two pictures of himself looking quite relaxed on a beach.
It remains uncertain when and where the snaps were taken as AJ is expected to be in the UK to announce his rematch against Usyk.
Promoter Eddie Hearn is ready to confirm the heavyweight sequel, which is set for August 20 in Saudi Arabia.
Joshua, 32, was beaten by Usyk, 35, last September but activated his right to an immediate rematch.
But this time he’s cornered by esteemed US coach Robert Garcia.
Longtime trainer Rob McCracken was replaced by Garcia and No. 2 Angel Fernandez in a bid to regain AJ’s confidence.
Promoter Eddie Hearn told SunSport: “He’s the most confident I’ve ever seen, Anthony Joshua.
“And we all really believe that he will beat Oleksandr Usyk and Robert Garcia is a great addition to the team.”
Hearn believes if AJ continues to turn back the clock and rediscover his ruthlessness it will take him back to the top of the heavyweight division.

He said: “It’s not that I can’t see him lose, but if he’s doing what he knows he has to do it now – and it’s not that he didn’t know what to do in the first fight – but he has given himself much thought.
“He tried to adapt a style to beat Oleksandr Usyk, which ended up being a terrible idea.
“Now it’s just, be you in this ring and you’re going to win this fight.”
