Meet Anthony Joshua's 23-man entourage including football agent, ex-boxer security guard and actor pal who starred alongside Judi Dench

ANTHONY JOSHUA'S entourage on fight night consists of a football agent, his closest friends and an actor that has starred alongside Dame Judi Dench.

The British star posed for a photograph with his team after he was dethroned by Andy Ruiz Jr in one of the biggest shocks in boxing history.

He stood alongside them for a snap in the dressing room after he lost his WBA, IBF and WBO titles to the Mexican in New York.

Promoter Eddie Hearn was pictured, but not all of his entourage are as easily recognisable.

  • Jamie Reynolds: Strength and condition coach that has previously worked with the likes of Troy Deeney and Eden Hazard.
  • Rob McCracken: Former British middleweight champion and corner man that AJ asked "why am I feeling this" during defeat to Ruiz.
  • Frank Smith: CEO of Matchroom Boxing.
  • David KD Ghansa: Self confessed "Marketing Magician".
  • Freddie Cunningham: Managing director at AJBXNG and 258 Management.
  • Andy Bell: PR manager. Co-founder of SoapBox London.
  • Rowan Wilkinson: Andy Bell's assistant at SoapBox.
  • Rob Madden: Strength and conditioning specialist and well-known personal trainer.
  • Mark Ellison: Nutritionist that also works with Manchester United and GB Boxing.
  • Henry Baldwin: Management.
  • Leon Skinner: AJ's right hand man. Was an actor and featured in the likes of 2005 drama Notes on a Scandal alongside Dame Judi Dench.
  • Sina Ghami: Strength and rehabilitation coach and gym owner.
  • Michael Jarman: Agent to the likes of Patrick van Aanholt and Tom Huddlestone.
  • James Mulley: Close friend of the former heavyweight champion.
  • Will Harvey: Athlete manager at AJ BOXING.

  • Iwan Llewelyn: Social media manager – previously listed Antoine Griezmann as one of his clients.

A number of his team uploaded the picture to their Instagram page with motivational captions to inspire Joshua to bounce back.

But former IBF cruiserweight champion Glenn McCrory has claimed the British star's career is "finished".

Heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder also launched a scathing attack at Joshua as he accused him of being a "quitter".
