The Aj vs Jermaine Franklin heavyweight battle will take place on April 1 and was announced after some time of rumors. This is neither an April Fool’s prank nor, on the other hand, one that has much significance or relevance globally. Instead, it is a mid-range fight; a fight that may be dismissed as whatever.

Joshua’s supporters and admirers will no doubt comprehend the motivations behind his choice of Franklin as his alleged “comeback” opponent. But, Franklin’s lack of experience and recent defeat to Dillian Whyte allow his critics the right to claim that Joshua has never faced a worse opponent than Franklin since 2016.

Both of those arguments have some merit. Undoubtedly, one might argue that Joshua’s selection of Franklin was made with the understanding. That this might be the Londoner’s final campaign as a heavyweight contender. To put it another way, if we lose this fight. Any opportunity we have of reaching the top for a third time may very well be lost.

Because of this, caution was always going to be the watchword when choosing this opponent. The first one Joshua has faced since suffering back-to-back losses to the great Oleksandr Usyk. Although Dillian Whyte and Deontay Wilder appear to be Joshua’s immediate goals. We already learned that his new training squad has no desire to fight another southpaw.

Two conventional heavyweights, and we can also presume that familiarity was another factor in choosing his next opponent. Who, after all, wants to face an unknown opponent with a style that is equally odd as the left-handed Ukrainian after suffering two defeats at his hands of him?

The fact that Team Joshua chose Franklin, in the end. Implies that these two issues occupied a lot of their thoughts. Franklin is not only an orthodox boxer, but he is also much shorter than Joshua. Jermaine isn’t known for having a huge punch, at least not one that would be considered world-class. Additionally, Joshua has all the evidence he needs after seeing Franklin fight Whyte over 12 rounds in November.

Both from a stylistic standpoint and in terms of his confidence. Which obviously will have suffered after spending 24 rounds with Usyk. He will be aware that he is fighting Franklin here and that Joshua has already defeated Dillian Whyte, who was stopped in seven rounds back in 2015.

Although most would agree that it was a close fight, it nonetheless demonstrated that Whyte and Franklin are not that different from one another, and so, regardless of who Joshua meets, he shouldn’t have too much to worry about. In essence, choosing Franklin, 21-1 (14), in the context of him being a tune-up opponent is fine. Jermaine Franklin fans can buy Anthony Joshua Tickets from our website.

Jermaine Franklin Chances:

As was already mentioned, it checks the right boxes. There is also a chance that Franklin, who is 29 years old and still has plenty of ambition and desire, will give Joshua the kind of fight he wasn’t able to get from some of his previous opponents, all of whom may have had greater reputations than Franklin but very little in the way of ambition and desire.

Franklin made it clear by attacking Whyte in the manner he did last year that he believes the reputations of British heavyweights are somewhat exaggerated. Given Joshua’s recent performance, it is reasonable to assume that Franklin will apply the same frame of mind and strategy to his upcoming bout here on April 1. If he does, Joshua might win the fight rather than just using it as a warm-up.

Like the one Franklin had with Whyte, it might develop into something interesting and even risky. And that’s when a fight like this gets confusing. It looks like a battle more hassle than it’s worth when you consider the possibility of things going wrong (which exists in most heavyweight fights) and the improbability of Joshua being given credit for any form of victory.

For instance, if Joshua defeats Franklin swiftly, he will merely be informed that he has accomplished his goal. As all is going on, Joshua has done nothing more than match Whyte, a fighter who is purportedly beneath him, on points. Accomplished when Franklin was unbeatable. In other words, neither of those paths to win will satisfy those eager to criticize Joshua, and neither of them will signal the comeback of a man who, according to reports, is competing at the best level in his sport.

Joshua vs Usyk:

He’s still there, doesn’t he? Several people even thought Joshua’s second performance against Usyk in August was better than his first one in 2021. They claimed it was evidence of Joshua’s growth as a fighter and that Usyk’s challenge and lesson were better for him in the long run than the one he had learned the first time around.

If that’s the case, why the need to go back so far now? You may inquire. Given how wonderfully Joshua reportedly played in the loss, does the outcome actually mean all that much?

I’d say that in actuality it did. Additionally, I contend that Joshua’s now-famous response to his loss in Saudi Arabia revealed more about him, his chances for the future, and his need for care than anything he did during the 12 rounds he sparred with Usyk. There was no question that Joshua had been defeated, but there was also no doubt that he had also been broken. A broken man will always require time for mending before they can stand up and resemble their former self.

Which, I guess, is what this conflict with Franklin stands for. Joshua is dipping his first toe back into the ocean after having a close call at sea. After a terrible vehicle crash, it’s the first leisurely lap around the block. As a result, it is completely permissible as an exception.

Anthony Joshua Fights:

The only problem with it, in fact, is how it will inevitably be presented as a tune-up fight to avoid criticism before being presented as a pay-per-view event (which is still what it is, despite claims to the contrary from yesterday) to make sure Joshua, who is 24-3 (22), receives the money he is now used to receiving every time he steps foot in the ring.

Even worse, given the recent trend of famous boxers sparring infrequently, we already know that Joshua will likely only fight once this year, most likely against Dillian Whyte. If this were to happen, Joshua would have spent 2023 defeating the two opponents in one of the least exciting heavyweight fights to have occurred in 2022.

Regardless of your position on the issue, that hardly qualifies as legacy-building material. If, as predicted, Joshua, 33, then enters his third “comeback” fight in 2024. Let’s say 18 months after the second Usyk loss – having only defeated the same opponent he previously defeated in 2015. As well as one of that opponent’s most recent victims, it won’t seem particularly clever or productive.

Another way to say it is that there are two levels of returning to square one.
