This weekend will be the return of the former heavyweight champion, after two consecutive defeats. Check here where to watch the Anthony Joshua vs. Jermaine Franklin fight, at what time, and on what channel.
Britain’s Anthony Joshua is looking to regain confidence and get a win, after his last two straight stumbles against Oleksandr Usyk who snatched all his heavyweight titles. For his part, Franklin is coming off a loss to Dillian Whyte at the end of the previous year.
Since 2019, Joshua has posted a 2-3 statistic in his last five appearances. He lost the belts vs. Andy Ruiz Jr. before regaining them against Destroyer himself. He has changed coaches as a result of his setbacks with the Mexican-American. Now he works with Derrick James, who I want to bring back to the big leagues.
Franklin turned professional in 2015. His biggest fight until 2019 was a unanimous decision victory over. In November of last year, although it stumbled in a controversial majority decision, its level attracted this fight. This time he wants to give a ‘final’ blow to an opponent who even meditates on retirement.

What have they both said about the fight?
Anthony does not want to trust that in theory, his opponent enjoys a minor name.
“I must take myself more seriously than I did with Usyk. Now I know better.” I didn’t train enough. I have to put more pressure on myself. As long as I remain a boxer, I will have self-demand to improve,” he said.
While his opponent has already put together a plan for how to exasperate him:
“From everything I saw, he doesn’t like to be touched much. So just hitting him will frustrate him a lot. Basically, I’m going to go in there and keep busy, get him out of his game plan. We’re going to be ready for anything. It doesn’t matter if he wants to box or if he wants to fight.”
