Joshua confesses he told White after he passed Franklin


Over the weekend, ex-contender British heavyweight Dillian White (29-3, 19 KOs) snatched an unconvincing victory over American Jermaine Franklin (21-1, 14 KOs), after which his compatriot and antagonist Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KO) is a former unified world champion.

Fighter promoter Eddie Hearn (Matchroom Boxing) does not hide that he plans to organize a rematch for this couple next spring – they met in 2015, Joshua celebrated an early victory (White was injured during the fight), after which Anthony became the world champion in the next fight.

claimsthat he simply congratulated White on his victory: “Nothing special. I just told him: “Well done!” We greeted each other with fists and I congratulated him. That’s how it was.”
