How to watch Joshua vs Franklin: Live stream, TV channel and price
It’s do or die for Joshua at the O2 Arena, as returns to the ring after back-to-back defeats by Oleksandr Usyk and he simply must win well. He is the massive odds-on favourite to do so, but we have seen the Brit fall to a shock defeat before.
Paired up with another new trainer in Derrick James out in Dallas, a career-heaviest AJ needs to bounce back in convincing fashion as he still eyes the blockbuster showdowns in boxing’s blue-riband division – with talks of a potential summer bout with Tyson Fury mooted once again.
American Franklin returns to the UK as a considerable underdog, but proved in his narrow points defeat by Dillian Whyte back in November that he is fully capable at this level and should not be taken lightly.
