Joshua vs Ruiz

OLYMPIC heavyweight prospect Frazer Clarke has sprung to defence of trainer Rob McCracken following Anthony Joshua’s shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. on Saturday night.

McCracken, who combines being Joshua’s chief corner man with his role as performance director of Great Britain’s boxing squad, has been criticised by the likes of former champion Lennox Lewis in the wake of Joshua’s defeat.

It is the first time questions have been raised about McCracken, a former world title contender who has guided numerous British boxers to Olympic titles, including Joshua who won gold when still a relative novice at London 2012.
