Mike Loosemore, Team GB’s chief medical officer has urged Anthony Joshua to tackle his concussion issues by using a new, special mouthguard.
Naija News understands that the medical officer gave the advice to avoid the concussion Joshua suffered in his defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr last June from repeating itself.
Recall that his coach Rob McCracken had faced criticism after he admitted he knew his heavyweight was concussed in the fight with Ruiz jr.
A new mouthguard developed by Sports & Wellbeing Analytics has a chip inserted which will be able to track the number of blows to a fighter’s head.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian boxer will soon be presented with an opportunity to regain the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles against new champion Andy Ruiz Jr. “but in November or December,” promoter Eddie Hearn had said in June.
