    Joshua didn't keep his word when he declared that he wanted to fight with good fighters like Wallin, Whyte and Hrgovic, in the end he still chose an opponent that he will definitely beat and after that he will gain false confidence and say that he is ready to fight for the title...

    Who the **** is Jermaine Franklin? At this rate people will be asking the same of Anthony Joshua in ten years.

    I don’t see why, whyte won and yet team aj want the loser??? Surely the whyte rematch would make more money? This sport is really sucking balls at the moment.

    Joshua's confidence is understandably very low at the moment. Some close sources told me the bodybuilder was laid out cold by a short obese fighter they found from the pub. Keep to the 40 year olds Anthony! lol

    They're building the Whyte rematch LOL

    This is the state of Joshua's career. Fight an interest building fight so you can rematch the guy who just got KO'd by the champ while not laying a glove on him.

    Joshua will defeat Whyte and will be "right back at the top of the mix" without having faced anyone credible. We'll once again be hearing about the "incredible depth" of the resume of 40 year olds.

    No real issue with the fight. We knew it would be a soft touch. Franklin just came off arguably the wrong end of a decision against Whyte. My only issue is that it will be on PPV.

    The poster-child for stay-busy fights.

    edit: wait, Franklin held Dillian Whyte to a MD just a couple of months ago? :dunno ...wtf, how? Whyte shot now, after the Fury loss?
