Jermaine Franklin: who is he? Jermaine Franklin’s background as Anthony Joshua’s upcoming opponent

On April 1st, at The O2 in London, former heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22KO) will make his comeback against American challenger Jermaine Franklin (21-1, 14KO).

“Although I wasn’t a horrible kid, I did occasionally get into trouble. The sport and I had a love-hate relationship. I was a large kid and I didn’t get many amateur fights. I was only exercising. Franklin never engaged in combat. I think I fell in love with the sport before I was 17 and competed in the nationals.”

He is referred to in boxing as the “989 Assassin” because of the neighbourhood where he was raised. Anthony Joshua fans can buy Anthony Joshua Vs Jermaine Franklin Tickets from our website.

Franklin, who is now 29 years old, was born and raised in Saginaw, Michigan, which has given the world icons like Stevie Wonder and Serena Williams, but the city also has its share of problems. The city has been plagued by violent crime influenced by drug and gang activities for centuries, making it a dangerous place for children to grow up.

“Saginaw is a place that is on the road to recovery, it is not a place for the weak minded,” he remarked of his hometown in Mid-Michigan.

Anthony vs Jermaine Fight:

Street smartness is a must when growing up in the “989,” and my mother tried tirelessly to keep me on the correct track in school, My stepdad took me to the boxing gym when I started getting into fights. Boxing came easy to me because I’ve always been interested in sports, and the rest is history.

With impressive victories against opponents like Cassius Chaney and the coveted National Golden Gloves Championship. Franklin had a very successful amateur career. The opportunity to compete at the Olympics came next, but Franklin had other ideas and chose to turn professional in 2015.

Franklin was defeated by Cam F. Awesome in the super-heavyweight final of the 2013 National Golden Gloves in Salt Lake City on points. But he received his comeuppance the following year. Franklin once more faced Cam Awesome in the championship match at the 2014 National Golden Gloves in Las Vegas. But this time he prevailed on points to win the title.

He describes himself as a smart fighter who can both box and fight rough. “I am a thinker inside the ring, although I can fight rough, I can also box. I’m constantly trying to find new ways to approach potential targets.

He has nine round-one knockouts. Franklin has six consecutive 10-round fights, the last four of which went the entire distance, and he just finished a 12-round fight.

He was compelled to sit out of the ring for more than two years, from 2019 to 2022. To maintain his family of two daughters and a newborn baby, Franklin had to declare bankruptcy and accept a full-time job that required him to work overnight shifts from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m, due to monetary problems with his previous management group.

Dmitriy Salita

Promoter Dmitriy Salita of New York City is now in charge of managing Franklin. Franklin won a 10-round battle in Atlantic City against Rydell Booker, a world-ranked boxer who had previously suffered a loss. Lennox Lewis, Mike Tyson, and Evander Holyfield are some of his favourite boxers.

He named Tyson Fury and Andy Ruiz Jr. as two boxers he admires, respects, and researches when asked about current competitors. Robert Simms, a fellow fighter from Saginaw and the current WBC American heavyweight champion, is a friend of his.

In addition, he is good friends with professional basketball player Sterling Manley. Rapper NOLOVE PEEZ, and Flint, Michigan natives Andre Dirrell and Claressa Shields. At the Ultimate Boxing Gym in Saginaw, he receives instruction from Jessie Addison.

Before to his fight with Dillian Whyte in November of last year, Franklin sparred with Tyson Fury. At the time, he stated of the encounter, “I have joined Tyson’s camp. I can tell you that on the first day, I learned a lot. I came to the realisation that I could compete with the Tyson Furys of the heavyweight category, contrary to what many people think or want to believe.  He is the best, but I think I have what it takes to compete with him. Being in his camp for this small period of time has taught me how to prepare, organise a camp, and be humble enough to seek advice from other boxers on how to be successful.  Sure, I will ask Fury on how to defeat Whyte and have already done so. I’ll admit that Fury and I are very similar. We have large personalities, love to joke around, and are huge boxing fans. So far, my sparring with Fury has demonstrated to me that I am competitive with him. Although I am aware that there are many who would criticise me and say, Yeah right I now have the abilities to compete and succeed there.”

Franklin, in a welcome change, wants to use the problems and stress he experienced with his prior management to assist others. 

“I want to launch my own business and assist other boxers so they can stay away from the unsavoury aspects of the sport. Many combatants lack protective gear. I was bound to my former manager by a slave contract. I had to do as he instructed or get absolutely nothing. Whatever career-related pitch I made simply went in one ear and out the other. Do what you were told, or nothing will happen. I simply want to support boxers so they can make decisions about their own careers, live comfortably, and avoid being coerced.”
