Joshua vs Whyte: Franklin Predicts Smooth Victory for Joshua

The third encounter between Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte, slated for next month at London’s O2 Arena, will finally bring an end to their long-standing rivalry. This Joshua vs Whyte match holds great significance, given their competitive history.

During their earlier showdowns, Whyte managed to secure a win over Joshua in their amateur boxing days. However, the Joshua vs Whyte rematch in 2015 saw Joshua exacting his revenge on Whyte in their professional face-off.

For a significant time, there has been speculation regarding a ‘tie-breaker’ in the Joshua vs Whyte saga. Yet, such a decider wasn’t considered necessary, especially with Joshua’s career soaring high, seemingly outclassing Whyte.

However, the professional standing of Joshua has been shaky of late, marked by three defeats in his last six bouts, and the loss of all his heavyweight titles. Now, the Joshua vs Whyte trilogy fight suddenly appears to be a pivotal moment for both fighters.

Jermaine Franklin, having recently competed against both athletes, offers a unique perspective on the upcoming Joshua vs Whyte bout. Franklin’s fight against Whyte was closely contested, but he ultimately lost via a majority decision with the scores being 115-115, 116-112, 116-112.

Joshua had been open about his aim for a decisive knockout victory after his back-to-back losses to Oleksandr Usyk, but had to satisfy himself with a dominant points victory.

In an interview with iFL TV, Franklin provided his prediction for the Joshua vs Whyte clash on August 12, forecasting a comparatively easy win for Joshua, the former two-time champion.

Franklin said : “I think Joshua will beat Whyte. I don’t think it’ll be a hard fight for Joshua.

It was a little harder for Joshua to punch me cause it’s harder for bigger guys to punch down than it is for shorter guys to punch up, but you know when you’re taller some of those shots are easier to get off.

Yeah I think beats Dillian.”
