The two-time world champion is still suffering from the consequences of his back-to-back defeats to Ukrainian, Oleksandr Usyk.

However, Joshua’s ring return nears and he hopes it will be a road back to world title contention, on April 1, in a must-win showdown against Jermaine Franklin at the O2.


Comparing previous records of having sold out stadiums at Wembley and Tottenham, there are still thousands of tickets unsold at the 20,000 East London arena, even as the count down close-up.

The British-Nigerian is looking to get back into title contention, however, and is starting things off with a tasty clash against American Franklin, who lost a narrow decision to Dillian Whyte at the tail-end of 2022, but most thought he did enough to win the fight.
