Promoter Eddie Hearn does not understand those who criticize Anthony Joshua for choosing an opponent. On April 1, the Briton should enter the ring with the American Jermaine Franklin.
“The one who is called the best heavyweight in the world, after the fight with Wilder, fought White and Chisora, whom he had beaten twice before. And here Joshua, after two defeats from perhaps the best boxer, regardless of the category, agrees on a fight with Franklin and criticism begins. To hell with it.”
“It’s important to me that Joshua gets back to where he needs to be, which is championship titles. For Anthony, after losing to Usyk, this will be a very important fight, especially psychologically. There will be huge pressure on him,” Hearn is sure.
Previously, the promoter said that the third defeat in a row will put an end to Joshua’s career.
