Anthony Joshua returns to action this Saturday night when he takes on American contender Jermaine Franklin.

It is the first time the 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist has fought since his back-to-back losses to unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk and also marks his first return to the O2 Arena since June 2016.

The 33-year-old is under pressure to perform after those losses as he looks to begin his journey to becoming a three-time heavyweight champion of the world. For Franklin, this will be his second appearance on UK soil after taking Dillian Whyte 12 rounds in a hard-fought contest back in November 2022.
