Dillian Whyte is set to fight Jermaine Franklin at Wembley next weekendFranklin is undefeated from 21 fights, while Whyte has lost two of his last threeThe 34-year-old Brit already has one eye on fighting Anthony Joshua afterwardsHe said that ‘sparks fly’ whenever the pair come up against each other
Before he can fight Joshua, Whyte will have to see off the undefeated American Jermaine Franklin when they clash later this month.
Franklin is a relative unknown compared to some of the huge names in heavyweight boxing, but he is undefeated after 21 fights with 14 knockouts, and sits 13th in the WBO heavyweight rankings.
Whyte will be coming into the fight in considerably worse form having lost two of his last three fights, and the boxer appears to have one eye on fighting Joshua already.
He told DAZN: ‘I’ll fight Joshua tomorrow. I’ll fight him for less money. Whenever me and him fight, sparks fly. We just want to beat each other up. I’ll fight Joshua even when I’m 60. It’s a fight that will make you me faster, diet better, and make me go to bed at 7 o’clock every day.’
On his upcoming fight with Franklin, Whyte added: ‘He’s the best opponent at the minute. He’s 22-0. It’s very hard to defeat someone that is undefeated. He doesn’t know how to lose. For me, it’s going to be an exciting fight.
Whyte appears to already have one eye on Joshua, but he will need to beat Franklin first
