Elie Seckbach captured the moment on his YouTube channel.

“Absolutely, what do you think coach? Absolutely, listen, you know what, I was talking sh*t man, but he’s still a young guy, he’s still got so much to learn you know what I mean? He’s always gonna be the future man coz he’s just a f**king baby. He started late in the game so he’s still learning,” said Tyson.

Anthony Joshua recently visited several gyms in the United States. This included Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez’s gym where his former opponent Andy Ruiz Jr. trains alongside legendary trainer Eddy Reynoso.

Reporters caught Canelo and ‘AJ’ sharing a few laughs and light-hearted moments with each other.
