ANTHONY JOSHUA has been hailed as the best heavyweight in the world by his new trainer – despite Tyson Fury being ‘another beast’.
Former super featherweight champion Robert Garcia was drafted by AJ of California to prepare for the rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua, 32, was beaten by the 35-year-old Ukrainian in September, losing his belt and heavyweight spot as a result.
But Garcia is now part of the team trying to hatch a plan to get revenge and regain the unified titles once more.
And the esteemed coach is confident that Joshua is the man who will rule the entire division as the most gifted of his rivals.
said Garcia Little giant boxes: “Tyson Fury is a different beast, a different monster. Oleksandr Usyk is very technical and difficult.
“Deontay Wilder has tremendous power. But overall I choose Joshua for me.
“Another thing is that Anthony Joshua also has insane power. He has great power, more than anyone else I think.
“Wilder, I’ve never felt his power, he’s also one of those guys who has that one-punch power.
“But Joshua has it too and he’s very strong.”

Joshua has left longtime trainer Rob McCracken, the man who guided him to Olympic gold and double unified belts.
It ends a decade-long relationship that began in AJ’s elite amateur days – when Garcia first caught the Brit’s attention.
He said, “Before I was even hired, you could have asked me, ‘Who do you think is the best and most talented heavyweight?’
“And I would always have said Anthony Joshua. Ever since I first met him, I knew who he was because he won a gold medal.
“But [Evgeny] Gradovich fought in London and Anthony Joshua fought on the same card when he was a rookie.
“He was obviously a superstar coming up with the gold medal, but I didn’t know who he was.
“When I saw him go to the weigh-in I could immediately sense what he looked like, even though I didn’t know who he was, he was special.”
