Where there's smoke there's usually fire.
You don't get to be the best by settling for second best. McCracken deserves his dues but if AJ aspires to be top dog again he needs to make hard decisions.I can't imagine this would be to leave McCracken, maybe to add the team or as a consultant on certain aspects but AJ is a loyal guy, he wouldn't do that as it would be spun as blaming McCracken for the Usyk loss.
Boxing isn't a popularity contest. It's tough business and you don't get to the top by settling for having second best around you. There is little room for the sort of sentiment you seem to be hung up on. McCracken deserves his dues but if AJ aspires to be top dog again he needs to make some hard decisions, now and that appears to be what he is in the process of doing.I'll be shocked if it happens, tbh I'm not convinced it would make a difference. Everyone has pointed out what AJ did wrong in the first fight and what he needs to do in the rematch. But as he is the last chance saloon he might decide it's worth a punt. Just hope if it happens he at least makes a clear statement of thanks and absolves McCracken of responsibility for the loss. Otherwise it makes him look like the same mercenary scum alot of other fighters are.
In a sporting context they are often a waste of time but unfortunately from a business perspective they are virtually a given.Immediate rematches are almost always stupid. This is stupid. Just let the division move on and go get those belts after it has played out.
So AJ "isn't a real fighter any more if he steps aside."If AJ takes step aside, he is going against everything he claims he is in it for LEgacy, fighting the best etc. If he really thinks its a good idea, take the money and go run a chain of Gyms or something because he aint a real fighter any more at that point.
Anthony Joshua ‘let down by his corner’ in Oleksandr Usyk defeat (msn.com)I can't imagine this would be to leave McCracken, maybe to add the team or as a consultant on certain aspects but AJ is a loyal guy, he wouldn't do that as it would be spun as blaming McCracken for the Usyk loss.
You got it completely and utterly wrong, as usual. Even condemned AJ in advance, not thinking for a second he would do what he did.Actually AJ made it clear that he and McCracken are on good terms in his IFL interview this week....Sorry for the facts getting in way of your AJ/Me hating wet dream.
The reality of how this played out doesn't suit you and that is completely understandable because you come out of it looking like an idiot after your earlier claims.Lol. You aren't living in reality! Just ignored the actual evidence of what AJ actually said as I pointed out.
AJ fired NcCracken and has now come out and laid blame on him for the loss.If you want to ignore what AJ actually said I suppose that's up to you but if you think I'm gonna care about your fantasy world where you ignore reality then you're even stupider than I thought.
McCracken used to work for AJ. He was his head trainer for many years.This just shows how your AJ hate colours what has happened. While AJ has changed trainer he clearly hasn't "fired" McCracken or they wouldn't be on good terms. And as to blaming him, he wasn't blaming anyone, he was explaining how he saw the fight at the time. It's your own prejudice against him that sees these things in the most negative light.
