Anthony Joshua’s trainer feels like under-fire Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Rob McCracken was quietly lauded by boxing fans for having the technical and personal skills to turn an 18-year-old petty criminal into Olympic champion inside four years but after Joshua’s shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr, he has faced a barrage of abuse.

McCracken said: “If Josh wins, don’t worry about me, I’m anonymous. At this level, you are going to take stick. The Manchester United manager is going to take stick. If they lose, this is the equivalent.

“That simply comes with the territory. Unfortunately, most of it is nonsense.

“You have got to do the right thing, do what you think is the right thing, be professional and help the boxer perform on the night — and keep him safe.”

Former IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion will look to fight back his belts in his rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr, on Saturday, December 7.
