Anthony Joshua vs Jermaine Franklin ring-walk time: What time will the fight start?
| Last updated
Anthony Joshua goes toe to toe with Jermaine Franklin at the O2 Arena on Saturday evening. But what time will the fight start?
Joshua is making his eagerly anticipated return to the ring, having suffered two straight defeats to unified champion Oleksandr Usyk in his last two fights.
The 33-year-old lost his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles, tasting defeat on points in both bouts against the Ukrainian.
However, Joshua is now on his comeback trail and will take on Franklin in London, just months after the American was narrowly defeated by Dillian Whyte in November.
Many have dubbed the fight as make or break, including Joshua, who has promised to retire should he lose the bout.
The 33-year-old has employed new boxing coach Derrick James as he attempts to put an end to his current losing streak.
