Carl Froch, a former super-middleweight champion, believes Anthony Joshua needs a “brain transplant” before his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
By defeating the Ukrainian, Joshua will become a three-time heavyweight world champion.
Froch has questioned the British fighter’s mentality ahead of the rematch on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Usyk won the first fight at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September of last year.
Since then, Joshua has hired a new trainer, Robert Garcia, who is believed to add more aggression to the 32-year-old’s boxing style.
Despite the switch-up, Froch does not fancy Joshua’s chances of turning the tables this time around.
“Sometimes a change is good, but for Anthony Joshua to beat Oleksandr Usyk, he needs a brain transplant.
“He’s got all the physical attributes but I just don’t think he can beat him,” Froch told Betfred’s Lightweight Boxing Show.
