Mairis Briedis offers to help Anthony Joshua ahead of Usyk rematch

The current holder of the IBF cruiserweight belt, Latvian Mairis Briedis wants to help former world heavyweight champion Briton Anthony Joshua prepare for a rematch with the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champion Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk.

“If Joshua is to beat Usyk in a rematch, then he needs to come to my gym and train with me. I know how to defeat Usyk. We are not friends, but we know each other well,” said Briedis.

Recall that the rematch between Usyk and Joshua is scheduled for this spring.
