He recently revealed this to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he expects AJ to be the underdog in their rematch but he’ll definitely be ready to prove everyone wrong.
Eddie added that no one should criticize Anthony Joshua for losing because he just fought a great.
His words, “He will want to go back in that rematch, and he will be the underdog in that fight but he has just been beaten by a pound-for-pound great.”
“Joshua lives and breathes boxing, he is already talking about training again and he will be in the gym and ready to get back in again.”
“You can criticise Anthony Joshua, but he has just fought a great and he is fighting the very best, and tonight he came off second best.”
“There is a new unified heavyweight world champion, but there is no point sulking about it and he must go back to the drawing board and rebuild.”
“We will have enough time, the fighter in AJ says he will win the rematch but I had it close before Usyk ran away with it at the end.”
“But he has to make changes and impose his style to win the rematch, or he will lose again.”

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE (born 15 October 1989) is a British professional boxer who is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December 2019 and previously between 2016 and June 2019. At regional level, he held the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from 2014 to 2016.
Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua was born on 15 October 1989 in Watford, Hertfordshire, the son of Yeta and Robert Joshua. His mother is Nigerian, while his father is of Nigerian and Irish ancestry. Joshua’s Nigerian background can be specifically traced back to the Yoruba people, amongst whom he is of aristocratic rank.
His cousin, Ben Ileyemi, is also a professional boxer. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013. Joshua spent some of his early years in Nigeria as a boarding school student at Mayflower School in Ikenne.
Following his parents’ divorce when he was 12, he returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, he was called “Femi” by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name, Oluwafemi. He excelled at football and athletics and broke his school’s Year Nine 100 m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.
