Anthony Joshua boxing record in full ahead of Jermaine Franklin fight

Anthony Joshua faces one of the biggest nights of his career on Saturday, with his fight against Jermaine Franklin hoped to spark a return to form for the two-time heavyweight champion of the world.

'AJ' has lost three of his last five fights, with his record having been hit hard by defeats to Andy Ruiz Jr and Oleksandr Usyk, the latter of those winning successive fights against the Londoner. However, he remains one of the biggest names in the sport and will hope to mount a return to form with a victory against Franklin.

The American had previously held an unbeaten start to his career, winning on his first 20 outings. However, he lost on his UK debut against Dillian Whyte, with a tight loss on points against the former WBC interim world heavyweight champion, meaning that he has a 21-1 record with 14 knockouts.

Joshua has weighed in his heaviest career weight of 255.4 lbs (115.8kg), holding a significant weight advantage over Franklin, who stepped onto the scales on Friday at 234.12 lbs (106.2kg). He will be hoping that this will provide him with extra power, with new trainer Derrick James expected to bring a change of approach for the former Olympic gold medallist.

Here is Joshua's record to date ahead of his fight against Jermaine Franklin.
