Tony Wilson?AJ now seen training with Anthony Wilson. The more opinions he gets the more confused he is going to get. If he doesn't appoint someone soon and get start with a solid game plan to beat Usyk he will lose badly again, perhaps even worse than the first time.
Wilson's pro career is also less than impressive. I dunno how he managed to become the BBBofC British LHW champ, but he did it by beating a guy with an 11-1 record. He then lost his very next fight, to a guy named Tom Collins who at the time actually had a a record of 23 - 15 !
That's right: Tony Wilson was a British Champ for an entire 2 months, then lost the title to a guy with a 23-15 record, and then proceeded to lose 6 of his next 11 fights, before retiring with a career record of 20 - 8.

He then worked some menial job for a few years, before reading about "the new Boxercise craze" and figured he could make a buck as an instructor. So he filled out some forms, paid his fee and got his "boxercise instructor" certificate.
That's basically his resume.
Wilson is barely even an amateur trainer. He's mainly a boxercise instructor, and also has some small experience working with kickboxers. (so he claims)
I dunno who those "20 world champions" are, nor what sport they competed in (Are there boxercise champonships?) But neither his official bio nor his new "Boxing Academy" website mention anything about this:

- So draw your own conclusions.
Maybe Usyk should train with Billy Banks . 🙁
Now, Tony Wilson might be a great guy. He might even know something about boxing. (Losing sometimes teaches you more than winning)
- but THIS is the guy picked to help AJ win his world championship HW title back? It staggers the mind.
AJ will be slapping his own face if he employs chill.It would be the ultimate slap in the face to McCracken if AJ were to appoint 'Chill'
Most unlikely to happen. But if AJ doesn't make an appointment soon I will be wondering what the hell his priorities are.AJ will be slapping his own face if he employs chill.
Considering the money he has earned he could hire the best professional coaches in the business.
Instead he hires some unkown American Amateur coach from a gym in Dubai.
As for for British Light Heavyweight Tony Wilson. He has kept a low profile for last 3 decades and is still traumatised by the fact his mother jumped into the ring to beat up his opponent with her shoe. Making Tony Wilson an object of ridicule everytime that video pops up.
