After back to back losses to Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua is starting his comeback. This weekend the former unified heavyweight champion will be facing Jermaine Franklin in a non-title fight. Joshua is the heavy favorite for the night, despite Franklin’s 21-1 record. Joshua has gone as far as to tell MailOnline that he will quit boxing if he loses to Franklin. The match is being billed as “New Dawn,” as Joshua hopes to use this match as a reset to send him back on the road for a championship belt. Despite the low stakes on the main fight, the match should be interesting. After all, some of the best boxing movies out there are comeback stories.
Several undercard fights will be broadcast before Joshua and Franklin square off. Some of these include Matteo Signani vs. Felix Cash for Signani’s European Middleweight title, and Craig Richards vs. Ricards Bolotniks for the vacant Inter-Continental Light Heavy title.
