Jermaine Franklin: Jermaine Franklin’s career may be called dormant rather than delayed, with the unbeaten but undiscovered American heavyweight mounting a comeback after two-and-a-half years of waiting, churning, and strategizing in Michigan’s fight factory.
After witnessing Tyson Fury dethrone the might of Deontay Wilder in the second fight of their trilogy, just months after Anthony Joshua had out-boxed Andy Ruiz Jr. to make atonement in their December rematch, Franklin seized the opportunity to spearhead the pursuit of American retribution in the summer of 2020.
“It felt good to be back in the ring. It felt good to be home and back in the ring after two and a half years. It felt good to fight a good fight,” Jermaine Franklin told Sky Sports.
