    Is he the right man to train a heavyweight boxer to become world champion? Robert Garcia has produced 14 world champions, however none of these came above the 160lb weight division.

    He could be, who knows? We will see on the night. He is the best trainer that Joshua has had to date so we should see somewhat of an improvement, maybe enough to beat everyone at HW but when it comes to Usyk i think he would always be the underdog regardless of his trainer situation

    To answer the thread question, no he's not the right trainer. What heavyweight strategy has he showed in the ring in the past. His best fighter is probably Mikey Garcia who is very solid fundamentally, and with the straight right, just like AJ but look at what happened to him against Spence who is a southpaw.

    Ash Ketchum could train him, he can't evolve much more.

    He is a much better trainer for AJ than Robert McCracken. Some thought Eddy Reynoso who is good but he is already trying Frankie Sanchez. My personal favourite would be Derrick James but he is tied up with Spence vs Crawford and Jermell Charlo vs Tyzu.

    Reynoso has been fired by Garcia because he doesn`t teach his fighters to jab.

    Robert Garcia deals with fighters who have CHINS & can eat punches for breakfast

    AJ ain't got that nor has he stamina or decent footspeed.

    If he was a good trainer his fighters wouldn`t be getting hit that much.

    Eh trainers can't change fighters that much unless they nurture them from birth e.g. Mikey Garcia

    Garcia is a tool who is not dedicated to his craft. Calling out Tank then chickening out of the fight is unMexican. This is not the first time he has done that so Canelo and Reynoso think of him as some type of fonocchio.

    Manny Steward trained more world champs than any other trainer, Dundee was not in his league.
