However, former Common Wealth champion Whyte has played down the reports that McCracken was to blame for AJ's loss to Usky.

What Dillian Whyte said

He believes that Joshua should examine himself more instead of playing the blame game.

Whyte said via talkSPORT:

“The easiest thing to do when you lose is to question the people around you instead of questioning yourself.
“Robert McCracken is a great trainer – look what he’s done for Carl Froch and other people on the GB squad.
"But when you lose you start looking for excuses, ‘Ah maybe I didn’t sleep enough, maybe it’s my coaches.’
“Joshua’s problem is with himself, it’s not with his coaches – it’s him.
“He let all these idiots come around him and start telling him, ‘Ah, yeah, do this and be like this'.”

Whyte's rivalry with Joshua

Joshua and Whyte started their rivalry back in 2009 when the former won their amateur contest but lost via a knockout to AJ at the professional level in 2015.
