On Saturday night, Dillian Whyte collides with Jermaine Franklin, and we’ve got the UK start time and every other detail you could possibly need to ensure you don’t miss a second of the action.
With his place among the elite on the line, ‘The Body Snatcher’ will have to produce a vintage performance if he wants to put together another run towards the heavyweight world championship. But his American adversary is willing to do whatever it takes to spoil the party and make sure his rival fades into irrelevancy.
On April 9, Whyte challenged Tyson Fury for the WBC belt in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium. But despite beating a murders row of contenders, including Joseph Parker, Oscar Rivas and Derek Chisora, he was no match for ‘The Gypsy King’.
At the end of the sixth round, ‘The Lone Wolf’ found himself flat on his back after once again falling foul to a brutal uppercut. And despite a valiant attempt to get back to his feet, the referee waved off the contest.
However, throughout his career, the Brit has always bounced back. But after such a devastating defeat, his undefeated opponent will think he has what it takes to upset the applecart, making this a contest fight fans can’t afford to miss.
