McCracken is a good shout, great trainer and he's involved in the GB set-up, so that means quality sparring. However, he's involved in training close to 20 fighters so I cannot see him expanding his professional stable. We'll have to see what happens with Froch, once Froch retires I believe McCracken will train one of his former amateurs, hopefully that's Joshua.
Otherwise, I don't see anyone else over here for Joshua, a move Stateside would do wonders for his boxing ability and career
Yes, yes and double yes.
The last thing he needs is to hook up with some domestic level hack trainer, knock over 20 stiffs and then all of a sudden hes in his late 20's with GLARING style deficiencies that it's too late to fix.
