Eddie Hearn, promoter for former two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, expects his boxer to reveal a new trainer in the next few weeks.

Last September, former cruiserweight king Oleksandr Usyk outboxed Joshua over twelve rounds to capture the WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO world titles.

A rematch clause was exercised by Joshua, and the second contest is targeted to take place on a date in April.

Following that loss, Joshua traveled to the United States and was spotted in the company of several high profile trainers. He also traveled to Dubai and was spotted working out with more trainers.

Joshua has long been trained by veteran coach Rob McCracken.

"He's been working hard. Obviously, his trip to America and subsequently training in the UK with various people... trainers flying in. I think AJ will make an announcement [regarding his trainer] when camp starts, which I guess will be end of January, early February. But he's worked hard to get it right," Hearn told IFL TV.

"A lot of people have said, 'do you think it's risky to bring in a new trainer?' I flip that and say, 'do you think it's risky to not be comfortable with your setup or your surroundings?' He's put the work in to make sure he gets it right. I guess there'll be an announcement regarding his training team when camp gets underway."

However, a new head trainer will not necessarily mean that McCracken will not be involved. Hearn believes McCracken will continue being part of Joshua's team.

"He'll always be involved in some way. He's more than just a trainer to Anthony Joshua... he's a mentor, an advisor. Those two will always talk - in what capacity, I don't know. I'll leave that to AJ to announce. But there will certainly be additions to the training team," Hearn said.
