He is determined to get instant revenge in Saudi Arabia on August 20, when he seeks to regain the WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight titles.
After the death of Rob McCracken, AJ swapped his trainers with Robert Garcia.
Eddie Hearn, the promoter of the 2012 Olympic gold medallist, has encouraged him to be assertive when he faces Usyk for the second time.
Fury, WBC king, believes Joshua's strategy of being on the front foot in his quest to be a three-time champion at world wrestling will not work.

The Gypsy King spoke to Pitch Boxing about the clash and said that Usyk was too cute for him. Too smart, too fast and a southpaw.
Robert Garcia should train Usyk to be more aggressive and to get on the front foot.
"I don't see it, but then again, what do you know?
It only takes one punch in heavyweight boxing. Although it wasn't a landslide, Usyk was still a fighter.
"He's not difficult to hit, Usyk. He's right there infront of you so clearly Joshua can land a big punch against him.
As we have seen many times, anyone can win a fight. Because Usyk has been at war for as long as he can remember, it's a great time to beat him now. He's not going to lose his mind.
"I think Usyk is too good a fighter for AJ. I don't believe AJ can pressurize him for 12 rounds, drag him to a dog fight, and knock him out.
"You must be an elite, special person to achieve that. I don't believe Joshua has the will to win that.
"He is happy to be in second, but he is too happy to be in second." Say no more if you are willing to settle for second.
Fury attacked Joshua last week, claiming that he refused to fight him six more times and that he called him a "prima donna".
