ROBERT GARCIA brought out the "bad guy", Anthony Joshua, ahead of the Brits' crunch clash against Oleksandr Usyk.

In a potentially career-defining Saudi showdown, the Watford fighter will try to reclaim the unified lightweight titles from the smooth southpaw.

Frazer Clarke believes Garcia has "pulled out the bad guy" from the former champ

Joshua Garcia, 32, a multiple-time world champion coach, helped him beat the undefeated Ukrainians the second time around.

Frazer Clarke, the coach's training partner believes that the legendary coach has unleashed a vicious streak in the former champ.

Sky Sports quoted him as saying: "I feel like Joshua is a nice man. He was a bad person. Robert Garcia did a good job.

He pulled out all the stops to win this fight. He has brought it out of himself."

Frazer believes Usyk (35), is the favorite to win the desert dustup. However, Frazer says it would be wrong to discount AJ's chance of retribution.

He said, "This could be Britain’s greatest heavyweight boxing night."

"I feel like everyone is putting him underdog and he might get outboxed for 12 round. He'd be foolish to place a bet against him.

Clarke helped AJ prepare for his biggest fight and has seen improvement in the former two time heavyweight king.


His fellow Brit said this about his Tokyo 2020 Olympian: "He's not under any illusions.

To beat Usyk, he will have to be his best. He'll have to be more than he has ever been.

"Better than the Wladimir Klitschko Night. He must be Klitschko-esque, I feel.

He had to return home after the night was full of ups and downs. It might be necessary for him to do this.

He's got every chance. He's given everything he can, and I have seen him work on a daily basis and weekly basis. That's all you could ask for from a fighter at a camp.

He's giving everything he has, using the skills and experience he already has, to make it a success.

"There are a lot people talking about Usyk being great and all that. He is very talented.

"There is no doubt. He is a formidable fighter. He's also a human.

"AJ hitting him on the chin multiple times is a sign that he's not human. He falls, and he likely won't get up."
