Anthony Joshua v Jermaine Franklin fight date, ring-walk time, undercard and tips

AJ is back.

Anthony Joshua returns to action in April, with the Brit facing off against Jermaine Franklin.

Two-time heavyweight champion Joshua faces Franklin from America on the back of his two defeats against Oleksandr Usyk, which saw the Ukrainian take home the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts.

Joshua, 33, has lost three of his last five fights but he’ll be well aware that a couple of wins will see him back in the conversation of title bouts with Usyk or Tyson Fury.

However, we all know the chances of Joshua and Fury ever facing off in the ring…

Franklin, who is 14-1, suffered his first defeat last year when losing against Dillian Whyte on points in London but many believed the American might have won the fight.
