Anthony Joshua returns to the ring on 1 April for a clash with Jermaine Franklin, as “AJ” looks to bounce back from two straight losses.
The Briton was outpointed by Oleksandr Usyk in 2021, surrendering the unified world heavyweight titles in the process, and the unbeaten Ukrainian retained the belts with another decision win over Joshua in August.
Joshua, 33, will try to get back to winning ways when he faces Franklin at London’s O2 Arena, while the American will seek to bounce back from a narrow points loss to Dillian Whyte.
Joshua’s bout with Franklin will be the former two-time world champion’s first fight on DAZN, but the worldwide streaming platform won’t be the only place to view the fight in the UK and Northern Ireland.
