    Both fights are almost pointless. As for who wins? Anyone who decides to find something else to do aside from watch.

    I'm pretty sure Franklin will be stopped somewhere between Rounds 2-5. He's not on Whyte's level to start with, but equally importantly he's been spending the past couple of years sending out signals he wants out of the sport. He's posted a lot of derotagory stuff about the business side of the sport and his promotions team on his Instragram - all of which he quickly deletes. It was painfully obvious that his "long COVID" diagnosis that torpedoed his planned fight with Stephan Shaw last year was nothing more than a duck. And now he's weighed in about 20-25 lbs overweight despite having plenty of time for a proper camp. All this suggests a lack of real commitment and while he might make an early effort to stay in the fight - he isn't going to want to know about it once Whyte starts landing heavier stuff.

    As much as I love calling upsets, I can't see the pisspoor blobby pathetic walking embarrassment that is Jermaine Franklin making it past the 4th round, much less pulling an upset. Yeah Whyte is brutally overrated and is a sucker for uppercuts, but Franklin has next to no power, is slow as molasses, his punches are labored in the first round and his defense is quite porous. He might not make it out of the first round. When you're struggling to win against the likes of Rydell Booker and Jerry Forrest, before he got his confidence back, and can't even KO a walking glass jaw like Pavel Sour, that's not a good sign. Dillian wins this by KO, coming forward, going backward, at mid range, anyway he wants it.

    Now Wardley vs. Gorman, that one is a little more complicated, sure Wardley is fast and heavy handed, but he was being battered by Molina, which is a worrying sign. All indications are pointing towards him being a carrier of glassjawitis. While Gorman lost to Dubois, his personal life was a distraction at the time, as has already been mentioned in this thread. Also Dubois, for all his flaws, he's heavy handed as ****, so there's no shame in losing by KO to him. Unfortunately for Wardley, Gorman is pretty defensibly sound, is an excellent combination puncher and has almost a reactive snappy left hook, that flies out and lands on openings like it has a mind of its own. So I'm leaning towards Orman KO here, I think he'll prove to be a bit of a riddle early, but end up stunning and dropping Wardley before he can decode him, and it'll be all downhill from there.

    I think Gorman get’s it done too, though he’s quite a big underdog

    Whyte threatening to hit Franklin's senior citizen trainer and pushing his little weeble wobble promoter just makes him look like a big bully similar to when AJ tried to instigate a fight with Usyk's senior citizen much smaller trainer after Baptism II. You'd never catch Big Joe Joyce conducting himself in that manner or even Tyson Fury.

    Even though Great Britain is a tiny majestic isle with a minuscule population, it's obviously the epicenter of HW boxing and up until recently one we dominated and owned and threatening senior citizens half your size is just not befitting behaviour from our HW Kings.

    Of course whytes is gonna look good against franklin, he's supposed to in his comeback fight from that glancing blow ko last time out , no risks, minimum violence, minimum risk fight so he can start shouting about fighting AJ again asap.

    :lol: Whyte's advertising was hilariously false last night. To call that a one-paced performance is putting it kindly. He should be forced to have 'Minimum Violence' emblazoned across all his promo materials from now on, the lazy ass.

    Don't agree with this, he went to war with AJ and Parker, both of whom are top contendors.
