Date, UK start time, live stream, TV channel, and undercard for Anthony Joshua’s comeback at the O2 Arena


As he gets ready to take on American Jermaine Franklin in a significant comeback fight, ANTHONY JOSHUA is BACK.

Since losing his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk back in August, AJ hasn’t competed in the ring.


Anthony Joshua will clash with Jermaine Franklin on April 1


However, the former heavyweight champion is attempting to return to title contention and is kicking things off with an exciting fight against Franklin.

At the end of 2022, the fighter from Michigan lost a close decision to Dillian Whyte, but the majority of people believed he had done enough to win.

If Joshua defeats Franklin, he will likely face Whyte again, who he defeated in 2015.

Joshua, however, can’t treat Franklin lightly because his career is essentially on the line.

A victory over Joshua would help Franklin, 29, establish himself as a contender for the heavyweight championship in the United States.

Joshua no longer has Robert Garcia as his trainer; instead, the Britishman will work with Derrick James in Texas.

With upcoming superfights against Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder still on his mind, Joshua will be hoping that some new blood in his corner can revitalize his career.

First things first: beat Franklin decisively to bring back those important matchups.
