When is Anthony Joshua vs Jermaine Franklin press conference? Date, time and how to watch

Anthony Joshua faces Jermaine Franklin this weekend, with the Londoner returning to the ring having been out of action since last August's defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.

Franklin was unbeaten in his career until last November, with defeat to Dillian Whyte at the O2 on his UK debut and he once again faces a top British heavyweight in the form of Joshua on Saturday night. Joshua has, however, lost three of his last five fights, with a defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2019 before his back to back losses to Usyk.

However, this fight is being billed as a 'New Dawn' for AJ, with the 33-year-old seeking a return to heavyweight championship contention having already become a two-time world champion.
