British heavyweight boxer Frazer Clarke believes Anthony Joshua has what it takes to regain title from Oleksandr Usyk.

Two times heavy weight champion Anthony Joshua has been tipped to beat Oleksandr Usyk when the finally meet in the rematch.

Fellow British heavy weight boxer Frazer Clarke stated this in an interview with skysport pinpointing the fact that defeat have changed the Nigerian born brit mentally.

Joshua have lost his title to Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk in September and like to rematch Usyk for the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight belts later this summer.

The most notable change in the Joshua camp appears to be the promotion of Angel Fernandez from coach to head trainer in place of Rob McCracken, who had guided Joshua since his amateur days.

Clarke, who is also trained by Fernandez, believes his stable mate will pose a different proposition for Usyk the second time around.

“I think the loss has made him better,” Clarke told Sky Sports News. “He’s opened his eyes a bit.

“It’s made him mentally better. I think he knows what he needs to do.

“I think he’s changed his situation, which he thinks will help him. He’s got a team of people that are dedicated for one thing, and that’s AJ getting the result.

“You can’t write Usyk off, he’s an unbelievable fighter. But I’d like to think AJ’s in a place where he can go on and get this win.”
