Anthony Joshua vs Jermaine Franklin

In recent years, Anthony Joshua has not entered an easy battle. Franklin lacks the gravitas of Usyk or other giants from Europe. The judges’ decision in Franklin’s most recent fight with Dillian Whyte was wrong, costing Franklin his perfect record. AJ needs to be confident and focused as he is to face Franklin. Joshua has appeared in various versions for fans over the previous few years, so this time will not be any different. AJ’s expertise, strength, and speed will be necessary for the version to overcome Franklin. Michigan-born Jermaine Franklin has been steadily elevating himself in the heavyweight class for some time. Win or lose versus AJ, Franklin, who is only 29 years old, has a bright future.

Like AJ, Franklin possesses fast hands and a powerful punch. For some of Franklin’s rapid combinations, AJ must keep himself on his toes. He will also need to fire first and reply. Franklin will be fighting for the second time on British territory; his prior victories have occurred in various American cities, including Youngstown, Tacoma, and Flint. Maybe this time, against Joshua, Jermaine will be more equipped for battle. Joshua will have a substantial reach advantage of 5 inches. Joining forces with world-acclaimed instructor Derrick James, who trains fighters like Jermel Charlo and Errol Spence, is another move to alter his fighting style. Nonetheless, the result of this Joshua vs Franklin event could likely be a KO in the final rounds.

The Pick: Joshua via KO.
